Sorry, Taylor Swift. Lorde now has her eye on another A-list star. 

On Twitter, home of late-night musings, Lorde tweeted, "i didn't really know about @SteveCarell until this year when I watched the entirety of The Office and now I WANT TO BE HIS FRIEND SO BAD. @SteveCarell steve I have decided we need to high 5."

Random? Seemingly. But although she doesn't reference it, Lorde likely saw Carell's recent Tonight Show interview, where the actor explained he was an early adapter to Lorde, hearing 'Royals" on an alternative station and talking her up to his kids before she became huge.

Which is way cooler than anything Michael Scott has ever done.
