Last week, Lorde was on the Australian morning show Sunshine to speak about her new album, Melodrama. The conversation quickly turned to her celebrity friendships, namely her friendship with Taylor Swift.
When asked about becoming friends with her heroes, Lorde said, “I don’t hang out with these people at all…You know, you make friends in different places, but I think for the most part I’m not, like, calling up my idols for advice necessarily.” When the interviewer asked Lorde about being a part of Taylor’s “squad,” Lorde gave a little eye-roll. And the internet went crazy. Headline after headline suggested that Lorde explicitly said that she is not friends with Tay-Tay. So Lorde took to Twitter to clear some things up:

And while Lorde insists that Taylor Swift’s Squad isn’t “some sort of blood-cult,” you’ve got to admit that if it were (and we’re not saying it is) we would totally join.
So let’s see how well you know the Swift Squad!
So how did you do? Ready to join the blood-clut–I mean, Swift Squad?
