Taylor Swift just wrote such a sweet Instagram birthday message for her pal Lorde!
The 26-year-old entertainer has been friends with Lorde for a few years. Lorde turns 20 years old today!
“Thank you for the music you make, the advice you give, the thoughts you provoke, and the way you’ve made my life more beautiful since the first day we met up in New York and ate burgers on a park bench and got attacked by squirrels,” the 26-year-old entertainer wrote on Instagram for Lorde, who turns 20 years old today. “I. Love. You. So. Much. Ella,” she added.
Happy birthday, Lorde!

Lorde took to Facebook just before her 20th birthday (which is today!) to tease her new music!
In the Facebook note, Lorde talks about her last hours as a teen and spills that she’s working hard on an upcoming album.
“And then I wrote a record about it, all of it, so much more than what I’ve written down here, and I’m in new york getting it done. And tomorrow, I’m not a kid any more, and more and more I’m realizing that the weirdness of those Mylar balloons is going to be okay. Writing Pure Heroine was my way of enshrining our teenage glory, putting it up in lights forever so that part of me never dies, and this record – well, this one is about what comes next,” Lorde wrote. “I want nothing more than to spill my guts RIGHT NOW about the whole thing – I want you to see the album cover, pore over the lyrics (the best I’ve written in my life), touch the merch, experience the live show. I can hardly stop myself from typing out the name. I just need to keep working a while longer to make it as good as it can be. You’ll have to hold on. The big day is not tomorrow, or even next month realistically, but soon. I know you understand.”
Lorde keeps it casual while listening to some music during a walk on Thursday (October 13) in New York City.
The 19-year-old singer hung out with BFF Taylor Swift and other squad mates the night before as they checked out a secret Kings of Leon concert.
Lorde recently made a donation of $10,000 to a family in New Zealand who has been struggling to survive.
Devora Busch, a mother of three kids, and her partner Richard Barry (who is unable to work due to hearing loss and other problems) found out their home was leaking, so they had to start paying rent somewhere else while repairs took place.
Meanwhile, the couple also has to pay for their daughter Rheegan‘s around-the-clock care, as she is severely autistic and suffers from a life-threatening eating disorder called pica (an uncontrollable urge to eat non-food items).
When a relative started a Givealittle page to raise funds for the family, Lorde happily stepped up to help. “Sending best wishes and love to you and your parents, Rhee. Xxxx,” she wrote.
“What an amazing young woman she is,” Devora told Woman’s Day. “There’s no personal connection so I’m very humbled that she would think of us.”
