Lorde Talks Taylor Swift Friendship: 'She Brought Me Into This Amazing World Of Supportive Female Friendship'

Lorde lets her hair whip around her head in this shot from the summer issue of Dazed magazine.

The 18-year-old “Royals” singer was interviewed by GirlsLena Dunham for her cover story, and opened up about vacations, guy friends and Taylor Swift. Check it:

On what she did during her recent downtime: “I had three months off. It was summer in New Zealand and I just went on all these road trips and did heaps of rock walking. I found the best dive spots, did some great fishing and saw some orca whales. It was amazing. Just lying in the ocean in front of my house and being like, ‘Life!’”

On having more guy friends than girl friends: “I have a lot of dude friends. I was kind of the camp mother of all the guys. I’ve been texting my friend because he hasn’t had a haircut without me in seven years so he just sends me the haircut emoji and I’m like, ‘OK, I’m going to take you.’ They’re amazing. I feel like teenage boys, all their emotions are really simple and diluted. Teenage girls feel everything so intensely and are so multi-faceted. Boys are just like, they’ll rest a head on your shoulder and you know exactly what that means.”

On Taylor Swift: “I mean, she definitely brought me into this amazing world of supportive female friendship. For me, someone starts talking about boys and I’m like, ‘I just don’t know what to say.’ I’m useless in that capacity and that was why I thought, ‘Well, I can’t have girl friends (because) I don’t know how to talk about boys.’ But Taylor just glosses over the fact that I’m terrible at that and she’s just like, ‘It’s OK, I’ll love you for your other qualities.’”
