We were introduced to Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor as Lorde four years ago when her lauded LP Pure Heroine took the pop world by storm, leaving her a 16-year-old Grammy winner doused in the cultural spotlight. She has been relatively quiet for the last year or so as she recently finished writing her new, as-yet-untitled second album, but that didn’t stop her from celebrating her twentieth birthday in style with Taylor Swift (see what I did there?) yesterday in New York City.

Lorde took to Instagram to post several photos from the evening, one of them with a caption thanking Taylor for her organization skills: “Had the best birthday party i’ve ever had tonight surrounded by my nyc family. All organised by tay who is as she says ‘a mom with no kids’. I am ur kid and u love me so hard I could burst. Here’s to our 3 magic years of best friendship and more moments like this squished between angels.” Check out all the photos from the party below.

Lorde also welcomed the occasion of her birthday with a lengthy post to Facebook about turning twenty, and how she has finally transcended the line between physical adolescence and adulthood, though she says she has felt like an adult for a while. Check out her full post below.
