We have proof on Instagram that Lorde’s birthday party was epic

We don’t know how many times we have to shout at the Universe before it it grants our wish. We want to be a part of Lorde’s friend group SO BADLY. The singer of “White Teeth Teens,” who finally left her teenage years behind, celebrated rang in her 20th in New York City last night. Planned by bestie, Taylor Swift, Lorde’s birthday party seemed nothing less than perfect.

Yesterday, T.Swift posted the card she made Lorde. The caption reads, “Thank you for the music you make, the advice you give, the thoughts you provoke, and the way you’ve made my life more beautiful since the first day we met up in New York and ate burgers on a park bench and got attacked by squirrels. I. Love. You. So. Much. Ella.”

Thanks to Swift, Lorde and friends (including Aziz Ansari, Karli Kloss, Lena Dunham, Mae Whitman, and Jack and Rachel Antonoff) looked like they were having an absolute blast.

Lorde gave a shoutout to Swift on Instagram, agreeing that her friend of 3 years is in fact, “a mom without kids.” Lorde added, “Here’s do our 3 magic years of best friendship and more moments like this squished between angels.”

We would certainly dissolve if we found ourselves sandwiched between Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss. But the birthday girl is obviously used to it by now.

Look at the balloons! Look at the hats! How freaking cute!

Another guest at the “party of the year,” Tavi Gevinson, posted a Polaroid of the super cool friend group captioning it, “& that’s why they call me LONG TONGUE MCGEE.”

We’ll just be over here crying over how envious we are of these funny friends.

And Lorde’s friends from home even made it to the celebration!

Happy belated birthday, Ella. We’re so sorry we couldn’t make it last night. You know how crazy life gets sometimes. But don’t worry – we’ll be there to celebrate the big 2-1 next year! Drinks on us!
