Taylor Swift: leader of a 'witches' coven'

TAYLOR Swift is the leader of a "witches' coven".

Lena Dunham - who is part of the "coven" alongside the likes of Karlie Kloss, Selena Gomez, the Haim sisters, Gigi Hadid and Lorde - has revealed the 'Shake It Off' hitmaker is the "camp mother" of the group.

She said: "Speaking of camp mother, I feel that Taylor [Swift] has really taken control and said, 'I'm going to get us all together in the same place, I'm gonna make it very clear that friendship is powerful and women are magic and if anybody thinks this is a witches' coven they might be right.' She's just made it her job in a very cool way."

The 'Royals' hitmaker also praised the 25-year-old star, admitting she brought her into an "amazing world of supportive female friendship".

In an interview conducted by Lena for Dazed and Confused magazine, Lorde said: "She definitely brought me into this amazing world of supportive female friendship. For me, someone starts talking about boys and I'm like, 'I just don't know what to say.'

"I'm useless in that capacity and that was why I thought, 'Well, I can't have girl friends [because] I don't know how to talk about boys.' But Taylor just glosses over the fact that I'm terrible at that and she's just like, 'It's okay, I'll love you for your other qualities.'"
