I met her not that long ago, at a radio event and we exchanged numbers. And she came to one of my shows—my record release show in Brooklyn, and we just have remained in contact. She just texted me, she’s like ‘I’m having a party for my friends in Rhode Island, and I’d love you to come.’ And there were men at the party but she didn’t want a picture—she said ‘let’s have a picture with all the girls.’ So yeah, we showed up and it was fun, it was raining, so we played a lot of board games and she baked. It was very much how you would expect her to be, a wonderful hostess, there was lots of delicious food.

We played charades. When we got there, everyone was on a slip and slide but it was raining, and I was like ‘I’m not like a slip and slide person.’

It was fun, but it was very low key. Everyone’s like ‘Oh my god! You were at Taylor Swift’s house!’—but she’s very normal. To me, I didn’t feel like—I just didn’t feel like anything crazy.
She’s a very, very sweet person. So all the rumours are true. Unless the rumours are bad and then they’re not true.

That girl with the curly hair who wears her heart on her sleeve is going to be very important to you in life. She’ll teach you that you can love people, have emotions, be vulnerable, get hurt, and still be an amazingly strong and successful woman. You’ll spend hours on the phone talking about boys and life. When you get to be in the same city for a day all you two will want to do is watch Law & Order marathons and eat Chinese food. No matter where she is or how busy she may be, she’ll always answer the phone when you need to talk. She’ll give the best advice and when you don’t follow it because you are too stubborn, she’ll be right back for round 2 advice without so much as batting an eye. She is special. Her words are inspiring. Hold on to her.
