The evidence that Taylor Swift is not actually a flawless non-threateningly pretty pop princess created in a lab by her record label keeps piling up this week.

First, her guitar teacher revealed that Taylor’s perfect childhood is a lie. Now, we’re learning that the 25-year-old millionaire shockingly enjoys the occasional drink and encourages others to do the same. Shame!

Taylor and best friend Lorde (Lorde & Taylor, as they’re known to some) hit some Golden globes after-parties on Sunday, and witnesses say Swifty was seen scoring booze for her younger pal.

“Taylor was drinking rum and coke and then she switched to Meiomi wine,” a witness at the HBO-hosted shindig tells Star magazine. “And she was feeding her rum and coke to Lorde!”

Apparently, Lorde was reluctant to take a sip, but Taylor egged her on, saying, “Rum is so good!”

Yes, Taylor peer pressured Lorde to drink. It’s worth noting that Lorde is from New Zealand, where the drinking age is 18, and this is probably the least scandalous thing that happened at this party…

Eh, this is Star magazine we’re talking about. Why nitpick?
