Taylor Swift Wishes Lorde A Happy 300th Birthday – SEE PHOTO!
Taylor Swift celebrated Lorde’s 18th birthday on Friday by joking that the mature teen is actually 300 years old. Swift took to Instagram to share a sweet photo of herself drinking orange juice with the birthday girl. “It’s Ella’s 18th birthday technically,” she wrote, “but we all know she’s really 300 and knows all the secrets of the universe.”
Lorde responded to the birthday tribute on Twitter, writing, “@taylorswift13 my tiny wizened old lady heart adores you.” Swift may have been poking fun at a slew of conspiracy theorists who refuse to believe that Lorde is only a teen because she seems to be wiser than her years. The debate had reached such a feverish pitch that in January the website The Hairpin even went as far as to publish a copy of the New Zealand birth certificate of Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor (aka Lorde), just to prove her age.
The “Royals” singer is having a huge year. She not only curated the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay Part 1, but she also wrote “Yellow Flicker Beat” for the album. Lorde released the song’s music video on Thursday to celebrate her 18th birthday. “This is my eighteenth birthday present from me to you,” she told fans on Twitter.”
