She played for 80,000 people, got on a red-eye, and landed on, like, two hours of sleep, and threw this crazy baby shower, and then left a day or two later to Germany. She flew all the way from New York to L.A., and then to Germany, just to give this baby an amazing baby shower. Her loving is so big, that’s the gift. The gift is so far beyond a physical thing. She’s really just all love.

I wrote it when I was like 18 or 19, but my friend [Jaime King] just had a baby and she made me godmother of it and I was holding this little baby the other night, and I was just thinking differently. When you’re holding onto something that’s so innocent and so perfect and has no idea what’s coming for it with the world. The world is going to throw so many things at you as we grow up.

I asked myself, ‘God forbid anything happened to me, would she take care of my child as if he were her own? What kind of morals would she instill? Will she be backup support if for any reason my child doesn’t want to come to me for something?’ I looked for giving people whom I admire, and those two give more than anyone I’ve ever met.

jaime_king: Dear Tay- Tomorrow is your birthday and I will be in the air. This picture I took of you brings back the fondest of memories. It captures all of your beauty that I know, that the world knows, in one photograph. You have the uncanny ability to just get straight into the Soul’s of us all in one shot. With your music, you grab the hearts of countless hearts & don’t let go. As my sister, with your irresistible enthusiasm, un-f*cking unbeatable passion and true honesty, feels like home. We have changed the perception of female friendships because somehow, in this crazy world where women want to hurt each other, we have a thoughtful group of friends where we have chosen to love each other through it all, and support our peers along the way & with open arms you bring this to life. Intimately and sincerely, I love you, I am profoundly proud of you, your Light is a rare and brilliant gift. Happy Birthday!!! (Your always sensitive, expository and teary eyed friend;) xo Jaime @taylorswift
Jaime Kings talks about her friendship with Taylor Swift to E! Online
E!Online:Did Taylor Swift give your son a godmother present (other than that amazing baby shower and then that onstage shout out)?
Jaime King:Her gift is her being-ness and her loving for him. It's the fact that she was in the middle of one of the biggest world tours in music history and took the time to come and be with us on several occasions. It's a really profound thing so many people would not do that, especially with the schedule she has where she barely has any time to breathe. Seemingly it's so effortless for her; she is a gift. Her being-ness is a gift.
EO:Did Taylor ask you to be in the "Bad Blood" music video?
JK:Originally the plan was for me to be in the video, and then when she became godmother she got really protective and was like "I don't want anything to happen to the baby!" Like what was I going to do, nun-chuck someone while I was pregnant? That wouldn't be cute.
EO:As her good friend, how do you react when you see T.Swift perform?
JK:I can't control myself when I see her perform, she's so freaking amazing. I think that's why everybody loves her.
EO:So how did you two meet?
JK:We met at the Golden Globes through Hailee Steinfeld. She turned around and was like, "Hey do you want to hang out?," and I was like "Sure!" So we swapped numbers and then I went over and we had tea and a girl's night, and that was that.
