Lorde made her American Television debut last night on Fallon performing "Royals" and also ended her feud with Taylor Swift. Her debut album is called "Pure Heroine" and is out now.
Lorde had this to say previously about Taylor Swift:
“She’s so flawless… so unattainable… I don’t think it’s breeding anything good in young girls. ‘I’m never going to be like Taylor Swift, why can’t I be as pretty as Lorde?’ That’s f*cking bullsh*t.”
After thinking about it, Lorde took back her comments.
During her record-breaking Staples Center concert last night, (Taylor has performed there more than any act ever) she invited Tegan and Sara up to perform "Closer" with her!
The video moves away from the big screen before the first minute for some fab footage!
We have been on "Closer" since it came out and it is still going strong! Check out the performance above.-DocFB
Diagnosis: We have a feeling Taylor wishes she wrote this song.
Taylor Swift has released the video for "Everything Has Changed" featuring indie artist and tour mate Ed Sheeran.
This is a chill sweet medley, that is going to get some teenage boys a hot kiss on an even hot summer night.
Diagnosis: The butterflies...the beautiful kind....
Taylor Swift is coming to Australia and New Zealand later this year!

Tickets will go on sale May 21st. For the list of tour dates, click on the continue reading button below.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Will swiftly....sell out.
Taylor Swift takes a stab at hipsters and gets a million views quickly with the release of her new video "22" as her tour kicked off last night in Ohama, Nebraska.
It is NOT a break up song or about an ex and it is STILL blowing up!
“I can’t wait for you guys to see the show, and I can’t wait see you on the road. Since 13 is my lucky number, today also seems like the perfect time to release my brand new video for a song called 22. We shot this video last month in Malibu. I never had this fun shooting a video because my friends in the video are actually my real life best friends.”
Good luck on the "Red" tour Taylor and enjoy being 22 and maybe have a summer fling while on the road. Won't happen, will it?-DocFB
Diagnosis: U look like bad news....
Ed Sheeran was a guest on the Australian morning show "Hamish & Andy" where he covered "I Knew You Were Trouble" by Taylor Swift.
Maybe Taylor Swift should write songs for other artists, especially males.
This version has over 300,000 YouTube views compared to Taylor Swift's original which has over 72 million views.
Ed is in trouble if he thought his would get more views than hers. We are sure he didn't though.-DocFB
Diagnosis: More Indie artists LOVE
We sure she only meant in the professional sense when talking to In Style magazine, but we had to take it there.
"I love hip-hop so much. There's something so honest about it. I would love to work with Eminem."
Knowing that Eminem is more raunchier than she is, regardless of her rock-girl like video for "Trouble" she doesn't see cursing as a problem but doesn't feel the need to curse in her music.
"I don’t have a big scary management situation where I have to ask them. If I wrote a song called ‘F**k’ I think people would kind of raise their hand and go, like, ‘Maybe swear less?’ But I just don’t really feel the need to swear in my music."
Would we see the return of T. Swizzle, which Lil John named her?
"Nobody wants to hear me rap but I’d sing a chorus for someone for sure. I would sign up for that in a heartbeat.”
So we take that as she wish she was singing the hook in "I Love The Way You Lie" instead of Rihanna.-DocFB
Diagnosis: We wonder what Slim Shady is thinking right now.
In the latest issue of Instyle UK, Taylor Swift talks again about her exes and how she writes songs about them. She does feel that turnabout is fair play.
"If I’m gonna write songs about my exes they can write songs about me. That’s how it works," the 23-year-old singer explains.
"I’m not gonna complain about it. I’m not gonna sit there and say, 'I’m the only one who can write songs about this relationship.' It’s fair game."
I'm not really sure I want to hear John Mayer or the guy from One Direction singing songs about Taylor Swift though.
I sometimes think she dates only to get new song ideas.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Trouble indeed....
