Lorde and Taylor Swift grab milkshakes

Claims of feuding between Taylor Swift and Lorde were put to rest this week, when the Kiwi singing sensation and the We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together star were seen grabbing lunch together in New York.

The 17-year-old and Taylor were spotted by a fan at the Shake Shack and tweeted, “I just saw them & the body guards didn’t want to take photos but luckily my friend did [sic].”

Lorde has previously said in an interview that Taylor (23) had an “unattainable” “flawless” beauty that was setting unrealistic standards for young girls.

But the Royals singer clarified the statements on her Tumblr page, saying she looked up to Taylor.

“I am very very new to this whole thing. I will probably never be the kind of role model for my fans that [Taylor Swift] is for hers. I admire her very much for this reason,” wrote Lorde. Perhaps the Kiwi singer was giving Taylor some advice ahead of her concerts at Auckland’s Vector Arena at the end of the month.
