We can officially squash any rumours of a beef between pop stars Taylor Swift and Lorde. Tabloids began pitting the two against each other in recent months because Lorde was spotted hanging out with Taylor’s nemesis Katy Perry (and notably not spotted in Taylor’s new Bad Blood music video), but we warned you not to listen to all that BS.
Last night, Taylor and Lorde proved to the world that they are, in fact, still the best of friends when Lorde joined Taylor onstage at her concert in Washington, D.C. As Taylor later revealed in an Instagram post, her pal flew all the way across the world to surprise fans with a special duet of Lorde’s hit Royals. Now that’s what we call a power friendship. One that’s unbreakable no matter what tabloids say.
See a snippet of their performance below, followed by Instagram pics from both Lorde and Taylor Swift!
