On Sunday night, Drake celebrated his 30th birthday at a club in Los Angeles and he invited a bunch of his famous friends. Drake blew out the candles on his Raptor cake with people like French Montana, Jamie Foxx, John Mayer, Taylor Swift, Karlie Kloss, the Haim sisters and Katy Perry. Clearly Drake was nostalgic for the years he spent on Degrassi, because Page Six says John, Katy, and Taylor brought some high school drama with them.
A source says that “the tension was so thick you could cut it with a knife,” and that Taylor and Katy completely avoided each other by staying at opposite ends of the room all night. Katy at least attempted to dial down the awkwardness by going over and making small talk with John. Taylor, on the other hand, reportedly avoided them both. That’s probably why she brought the Haim sisters with her; one to stand guard, one to fetch her drinks, and one to constantly reassure her that she’s so much cooler and better than those two unpopular skank losers.
Both Katy and Taylor reportedly used different entrances, with Taylor and her friends coming in the front door and Katy and her friends using the back. The source also claims that Katy and her friends were “inappropriately dressed” for Drake’s formal party. Sneaking in the back door? Not dressed right? Damn, “source“, did she also bring a cheap present and take two loot bags when she left? Here’s what Katy’s “inappropriate” outfit looked like by the way.

If we’re going to call out Katy Perry for looking like Kyle Richards in a Savers Kiss of the Spider Woman costume, then we also should be side-eyeing John Mayer for showing up to a formal party with that many buttons unbuttoned.
So what did Taylor Swift do all night when she wasn’t shooting stink eyes in Katy and John’s general direction and bugging the DJ to play Bad Blood and Dear John? Page Six says Taylor spend a lot of time “flirting, talking closely, and laughing” with Drake. The only other person Drake spent more time with at the party besides Taylor was his mom. I’m sure that’s my cue to write the words “new famous boyfriend alert!“, but I don’t think it was like that. Taylor was probably just trying to recruit Drake for a possible co-ed subsidiary to her girl squad. “I heard you also like to slap at your enemies in song. Shall we discuss this further over friendship contracts?”
