Lorde on Maintaining Friendship with Taylor Swift: 'It's Like Having a Friend with an Autoimmune Disease'

Lorde is opening up about the difficulty of maintaining a friendship with her pal Taylor Swift, and used a strange analogy to make her point clear!

“It’s like having a friend with very specific allergies,” the 20-year-old entertainer told The Guardian about being friends with Taylor, 27. “There are certain places you can’t go together. Certain things you can’t do. There are these different sets of considerations within the friendship. It’s like having a friend with an autoimmune disease.”

Taylor is often subject to tabloid scrutiny, and has rarely been photographed in the past several months. She was most recently seen hanging out with her new beau Joe Alwyn.

    no one can actually be true friends with taylor .. and most that try aren’t friends anymore. Take Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence. Jennifer used to fan girl over Taylor then they became friends and hung out. Now neither of them have anything to do with her.

    Sad to see all the jealous little people trying to use this against Ella and Taylor. How sad it must be to be that pathetic. Anyone with at least half a brain can understand exactly what she is saying, but some sad morons are always looking for something they can dishonestly twist into a negative. Anything to cause trouble.
