It turns out Taylor Swift’s bathroom cry fest freakout wasn’t the most middle school-y thing to happen to Taylor Swift after the Golden Globes on Sunday night. According to Star magazine, Taylor went from heartbroken prom queen to class-skipping bad influence popular girl by peer pressuring her 18-year-old high school friend Lorde to get her drink on at a Golden Globes afterparty.
A source says Taylor was drinking a rum and coke, but decided to switch to wine, at which point the source says she started “feeding her rum and coke to Lorde.” Tay Tay apparently told Lorde she didn’t have to drink if she didn’t want to, but reassured her that “rum is so good!” Lorde then took a sip, liked it, and ordered a rum and coke for herself. “And if you like that” Taylor’s bad ass alter-ego Tylor said “then I bet you’ll also love cigarettes. Look, I snuck two from my mom’s purse. Let’s smoke them!”
Taylor also apparently made the classic middle school mistake of drinking on an empty stomach. The source added that Tay Tay didn’t eat anything, and when a server brought In-N-Out to her table, she just picked at it. EXCUSE ME? She just picked at it? She must not have been drinking as much as we thought, because no drunk can resist the siren song of a greasy In-N-Out cheeseburger.
And to add another melodramatic chapter to the YA novel that is her life, Taylor followed up her messy Golden Globes night with an awkward run-in with Harry Styles on Wednesday night at the birthday party for King of Leon singer Caleb Followill. OMG poor Tay Tay! What’s next, finding out she’s also been cut from the volleyball team?
Speaking of middle school, here’s Tay Tay looking like a homeschooled girl named Teighlor as she makes her way to a ballet class in Beverly Hills yesterday:
