Lorde: I Pretended To Be Taylor Swift’s Manager – WATCH VIDEO!
Lorde discussed her friendship with Taylor Swift on Tuesday’s “Tonight Show,” telling Jimmy Fallon that Swift once had her pretend to be her manager at a Grammys party. “She’s really funny and people don’t expect it,” Lorde said of Swift. “It’s really dry and you’re almost like, ‘Wait… did I? Is that what you just… Did that just happen?”
Lorde recalled attending a pre-Grammy party with Swift that was filled with famous people everywhere. It was one of Lorde’s first big events, so the “Royals” singer said she found Swift and stuck by her friend’s side. She explained, “A lot of people come up to talk to Taylor, you know, just to talk about stuff. She is lovely. She’s great.” Lorde continued, “And there was this guy, and he wanted her to play at some event he was having. He talked to us for about 10 minutes and she was obviously lovely about it.”
Lorde noted, “It kind of got to the end of the conversation, and he said, ‘So I will leave my card. Is this your manager?’ and points at me. Just no beat passed, and she [Swift] is like, ‘Yea,’ and all of a sudden I was Taylor Swift’s manager, this like tiny kind of gothy hunched person.” She added, “The worst part was I performed that night on that stage about a half an hour later.” Fallon joked, “That guy must have been like, ‘Her manager is really talented.'” Lorde also dished about the first time she and Swift bonded and what it was like to curate the The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 soundtrack.
