Listen to Taylor Swift on iHeartRadio | Listen to Lorde on iHeartRadio

Taylor Swift is getting friendlier with breakout "Royals" singer Lorde. 

While continuing her "Red" tour in Australia, she was photographed out to dinner in Melbourne with the rising star on Thursday night, just before Taylor's 24th birthday on the 13th. 

According to the "Daily Mail," Taylor and Lorde were joined by a group of friends all taking part in the star's two-day celebrations. 

Their hangout isn't however being taken kindly by some fans on Selena Gomez, Taylor's best friend, who Lorde accused of being "anti-feminist" earlier this year.  Selena and Lorde have had some back-and-forth over the comments, and the pop star even publicly declared she would stop covering "Royals" at her concerts.  

Are Lorde and T-Swift new besties?
