Let Lena Dunham tell you about her best friend, Taylor Swift. Apparently, she's a real freak.
On Tuesday, a Harper's Bazaar profile of 60s/70s rock star muse Pattie Boyd dropped. Pop star Swift interviewed Boyd for the piece, and was featured in a photoshoot alongside the "Layla" and "Something" subject.
It was a surprising move for the lately press-avoidant singer, and one that her Girls star BFF Dunham was thrilled by. The TV creator took to Twitter to share just how excited she was by Swift's latest spread, and revealed that this Harper's Bazaar piece was an example of the elusive and real T. Swift.
"Omg @taylorswift13’s Harper’s Bizarre spread with Pattie Boyd is actual heaven," wrote Dunham on the social media platform. "TS is the best friend a gal could ask for & also the most ingenious weirdo - she doesn’t get enough credit 4 being a true nerd freak in addition to a goddess. This is the most 'her' I’ve ever seen her."

It's unclear exactly what Dunham means by calling Swift a "freak," but I'm sure it's out of nothing but love. Most geniuses are kind of weirdos. Some create clones of their previous incarnations and stick them all in one surreal music video.
"Watching the way that she understands the vicissitudes of the cycle, and she just keeps making her work — that's just really impressive to me... She's been put through the ringer, and she's continued to make her work."
"Proud of @taylorswift13 for her fierce & cutting testimony & her refusal to settle for being treated like property," Dunham tweeted. "Her example is powerful."
If Swift is a freak, well — she's a freak that Dunham is perpetually inspired by. The best kind.
