Taylor Swift sure knows how to party down Down Under!
The chart-topping singer celebrated her 24th birthday Friday while on tour in Australia, and she marked the big day with a verdant, garden-themed bash in Melbourne.
The fete obviously left her in blooming spirits: Swift posted photos of the rollicking party on Instagram, and the guest list included none other than new BFF Lorde. (In fact, Swift and the New Zealand singing sensation were spotted grabbing dinner together the night before.)

These days, a song's journey isn't over the day it hits the top of the charts. No, in our Internet-addicted times, a piece of pop culture hasn't truly made its mark until it's been the subject of a thousand parody videos, ordinary people riding its coattails for a brief shot at viral fame. The spoofs can range from sharp and scathing to delightfully affectionate, but they all help make the Web a richer, more democratic place. To celebrate this outpouring of creativity, the people at YouTube have compiled a list of the top 10 parody videos of 2013. Watch them all below!

The song of the summer – Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" – was a no-brainer for a record of the year nod when the 2014 Grammy nominations were announced Friday night during a live concert at the Nokia Theater in L.A.
But Miley Cyrus, whose headline-making songs "We Can't Stop" and "Wrecking Ball" were eligible, was shut out of the major categories.
Jay-Z leads the pack with nine nominations, Justin Timberlake, Kendrick Lamar and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis scored seven apiece while newcomer Lorde received four.

All right, it wasn't quite a supergroup. But the 600 invited guests who witnessed a slightly nervous Prince William joining Taylor Swift and Jon Bon Jovi for a rendition of "Livin' on a Prayer" will likely never forget it.
Rocking a tux, the prince was led to the stage by Swift late Tuesday night at Kensington Palace. Once in front of the mic, he clapped his hands and nodded his head to the music as those in the crowd hollered the chorus. At times he even managed to harmonize with Swift and Bon Jovi – and play air guitar.
The impromptu concert was described by William's aides as completely "off the cuff," and as it concluded, William and Swift high-fived each another, while Bon Jovi, who was awarded the Great Britain Youth Inspiration Award in honor of his Soul Foundation, gave his royal backup singer a big hug.
