Taylor Swift and Lena Dunham are the world's best buddies

14 October 2014, 08:49

Los Angeles - Taylor Swift and Lena Dunham bonded over their love of cosy evenings in.

The Shake It Off hitmaker has formed a tight bond with the Girls creator and star in recent years and also feels lucky to count Lorde and actress Jaime King among her close friends, as none of them enjoy going to bars or nightclubs.

She said: "We relate on different levels, but the one common thread between all of my friends is I can trust them. They aren't really much for going out to bars or clubs or anything. They're not really as interested in that and I'm not either, so it works out pretty well.

"It's really wonderful to have someone like Lena Dunham in my life. We have the same responsibility and the same pressure that's on you when you write every single word you end up performing.

"Ella, Lorde and I geek out over music. She plays new songs she's heard, and we play each other new music we've written. Jaime King and I will sit around and talk and cook or just order in Chinese food.'

"My group of friends are the most important thing to me right now. they are so fun and know me and like me for who I actually am."

The blonde beauty claims being single has helped her to get to know herself better.

She added to People magazine: "I made the decision to spend time on my own and figure out who I am. When you're in love you tend to prioritise that other person's opinion and almost value it as much, if not more, than your own opinion. When you take the other person out of the scenario and you're walking through life on your own, you end up figuring out what you actually like without anyone else's input.

"I'm just happy to discover life's surprises as they come. I didn't used to be like that."
