We're in awe of Taylor Swift and we're not saying that ironically--which, sadly, is how Swift initially viewed Lena Dunham's follow on twitter. "I was really scared [Dunham] was being ironic," Swift told Rolling Stone. "But I decided to follow her [back] anyway, just in case."
Swift and Dunham are now bffs who play dress-up in vintage night gowns (pretending to be pioneer women) in Swift's penthouse apartment in New York City. Will this friendship with a quirky, acclaimed industry 'It' girl assuage reluctance from the 25-34 crowd to give Swift more credit for being her own brand of brilliant?
Recently Swift pulled off an ultimate gift to her most loyal fans: she bused fans to her personal homes in Los Angeles, New York, Nashville (and into a hotel in London), and invited them into her living room for a private listening party of her new album, 1989. Swift took Polaroids with every fan, let them play with her kitten, and baked cookies.
The question now is: Taylor Swift, can we be friends?
