Lorde appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon
on Tuesday evening, and the 18-year-old New Zealand-born entertainer chatted all about her friendship with Taylor Swift.
So how did the two first come into contact? "She sent me some flowers, which was so nice," Lorde said. "She just sent them to my house and said like, 'Congratulations on everything.' I was like, 'God! I need to know more!'"
"We actually met up here in New York," Lorde continued. "We had Shake Shack, which I feel like is kind of a good bonding … a friendship like bonds with those thick-ass milkshakes." We'd love to know what the ladies chatted about!
So what's T. Swizzle's most endearing quality? "She's really funny and people don't expect it," Lorde said. "It's really dry and you're almost like, 'Wait… did I? Is that what you just… Did that just happen?"
And Taylor is also speaking out about her A-list gal pals! The superstar, who turns 25 next month, covers the new issue of ASOS
and reveals that she's drawn to certain types of people. "My friends are the kind of people that have their own lives, and their own busy schedules, and that’s why we get along so well," she explains. "A lot of 'celebrities' surround themselves with these very chic cling-ons who don’t really have much of a job or a passion, they follow around their celebrity BFF and provide constant affirmation for them and I’m really not interested in that kind of deal." Hmm, wonder who she's taking a jab at here?
Taylor also says that her BFFs influence her fashion. "When I’m getting dressed, it’s always based on what my friend’s will think," she says. "They are my number one priority and the opinions of girls are more important to me at this point in my life."
Wonder what they'll think of these outfits for the mag? They're not her usual style, but maybe they should be?

Katy Perry attended the 2014 ARIA Awards in Sydney, Australia on Wednesday, and the 30-year-old singer wowed in a sexy Jaime Lee two piece outfit. From the see-through side panels to her tiny waist peeking out, it looks like girlfriend has been busting her butt at the gym -- she looks incredible!
Katy was a presenter at the show, and while she was nominated for Best International Artist, she ended up losing that award to the boys of One Direction, all of whom showed up and hit the red carpet. Yup, even Zayn! Though he didn't look too happy about it...
The group performed "Steal My Girl," and after the show Niall Horan tweeted, "Just won an ARIA ! Yes bruu ! thank you to all the Aussie fans for voting for us! Love you!" Liam added, "Thank you so much Australia you guys are amazing another great day and another award huge!!!!!"
While Zayn Malik has been hit with reports that he's abusing drugs, we have to say, he did a pretty good job belting it out onstage:

She may be a grandma, but that's not stopping her from dating men half her age -- or enjoying wild nights out in Hollywood!
Kris Jenner, 59, and new boyfriend Corey Gamble, 33, went to dinner at Craig's in West Hollywood on Tuesday evening, and they were joined by Kyle Richards and Faye Resnick. After dinner, Kris and Corey went to The Nice Guy club, but they only stayed for about 30 minutes, at which point they hit Bootsy Bellows at 11:30pm, where they partied in a private room before leaving at 1:30am.
Kris was in a great mood (and it kills is to say this, but she looked great too!) but Corey seemed a little annoyed. Maybe he's not a Housewives
fan? Or is he getting sick of PMK already?

Two can play at this game!
Ariana Grande took to her Twitter today to respond to Bette Midler's Telegraph
interview, in which the music icon dissed the pop diva and called her a "wh*re" among other things, and the young songstress tried to take the high road while pointing out the hypocrisy of Midler's statements.
"Bette was always a feminist who stood for women being able to do whatever the F they wanted without judgement! not sure where that Bette went but i want that sexy mermaid back!!! always a fan no matter what my love," Grande posted with a photo of Midler in a sexy costume and the caption, "all love here."
In case you missed it, the First Wives Club
star slammed Grande and her fellow pop princesses for using sex to sell music. "It's terrible. It’s always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, a very wholesome voice, slithering around on a couch looking so ridiculous. I mean, it’s silly beyond belief and I don’t know who’s telling her to do it," the 68-year-old sniped to the paper. "I wish they'd stop. I wish they’d stop. But it’s not my business, I’m not her mother. Or her manager. Maybe they tell them that’s what you’ve got to do. Sex sells. Sex has always sold," she added.
"Whatever structures there were have fallen apart. And now it’s whatever you feel like doing you can do. I mean, apparently people really like to pretend they’re having sex. They really like to slap each other’s butts," she continued, acknowledging that maybe she was out of touch with reality. She did have words of wisdom for this generation of performers, though! "Trust your talent. You don’t have to make a wh*re out of yourself to get ahead. You really don’t."
Your move, Bette!

Kim Kardashian is back in black! Trading her nude and white ensembles in for a darker style, Kimbo donned an all-black outfit when she touched down at LAX after her long flight from Dubai.
We have to take issue with this outfit selection. It might be time to have a sit down with Kim and tell her LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS! If she was wearing those cropped leggings to the gym, we'd be fine with it, but not with high heels, a button-down and a trench coat! No -- just no!
Earlier this week, the 34-year-old was in the Middle East (with Khloe's boyfriend French Montana) doing appearances to promote her seventh fragrance Fleur Fatale, which is described as a "beautifully floral and elegant scent."
Amazingly enough -- right after landing, Kim headed straight to Beverly Hills and stopped by famed salon Anastasia for a wax. When a gal needs a wax -- she needs a wax!
Meanwhile, it appears as though Kimmy K is turning the other to the recent rumors claiming that she and Kanye were having some marital problems. Kim's rep told E! that,"there is nothing wrong" and that the latest speculation is "nonsense."
Is Kim wearing black to symbolize the death of Kimye?! We can't wait to find out!

You can't fool us! Justin Bieber may have thought he tricked us, but we could spot that Canadian trouble maker anywhere -- bandana or no bandana! Those dropped-crotch pants were a dead giveaway!
Wearing some serious ruby, gold and diamond bling, the 20-year-old ducked out of a New York City restaurant on Tuesday night in attempt to go low-profile. We aren't sure if masking oneself in something an old-timey bandit of the Old West would wear is exactly how to stay on the DL -- but we are just glad we caught Bieber in his attempted escape.
The Biebs might be to keeping a low profile now that Forbes
magazine just listed the "Boyfriend" singer at the top of its Highest-Earning Celebrities Under 30 list. The mag estimates that the heartbreaker has made an $80 million over a 12-month period, which was mostly earned through his headline-making world tour.
Maybe the money-making JB is wearing a disguise because he doesn't want to get kidnapped? He is rather small and probably easy to snatch!

Is she ready for the club or the treadmill?! From the fancy shades to the leather jacket to the cleavage, Khloe Kardashian looks awfully dressed up for a workout!
On Tuesday afternoon the 30-year-old reality TV starlet hit the gym in Los Angeles, but we have a theory as to why she's busting out. You see, her tank top is pulled down to cover up her crotch, and in the process she ended up bringing the neckline on her shirt below her sports bra. Camel toe is never a sexy look, but boobs are never a problem, so Khloe managed to find a way to keep everyone happy! (And yes, we've used this technique before to hide the toe after a workout -- no shame in that!)
In other Khloe news, she posted some super glam shots on Instagram yesterday after stopping by the studio, but it looks like she received some nasty remarks from the haters. Well, that's not news, but we do find it interesting that she makes time to read all of her comments -- and that she lets it bother her! Earlier today she tweeted, "Why do the ones who always talk sh*t on instagram have their accounts private?" Good question, Khloe. But why worry about them?

We've never seen Jen look so unkept before!
Jennifer Aniston is generating Oscar buzz for her role in the upcoming drama Cake, and we can see why! The actress plays a chronic pain sufferer whose life takes a turn when a friend from her support group, played by Anna Kendrick, commits suicide. The A-lister's character then becomes obsessed with learning about Kendrick's character's life and death.
The clip shows Jen A visiting doctors, picking up pills, and crying in her pain support group, and that's just the beginning of the dark storyline that might help her nab her first Academy Award.
So how did our favorite Friend transform herself from fab to frumpy? "I basically just didn't work out for two-and-a-half months. I stopped working out and I stopped being as careful about my diet as I normally am. I was still healthy, but I'd allow more," she explained during a recent Q&A for the flick.
We can't wait to see this! Cake hits theaters in January 2015.
