Lorde made the terminal mistake of shading Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez in recent interviews and subsequently became public enemy number one for miffed fans. Well, the 16-year-old must have finally logged into Twitter and seen the zombie apocalypse that is her timeline because she has issued an apology via her Tumblr account.
The “Royals” hitmaker started by admitting that she “cocked that up a bit and what I said wasn’t put in context” but explained her stance by saying: “there’s a lot of importance placed on physical perfection in this industry, and I wish my favorite stars didn’t look perfect because I think fans (me included) have these feelings of worthlessness.”
She then became downright sycophantic, writing: “[Taylor] happens to be good looking, but I think she actually uses her other imperfections in an incredibly powerful and relatable way” and also noted that “Taylor Swift has a very unique vision, which I admire.” That’s lovely but what about Selena Gomez? I guess Lorde still thinks she’s anti-feminist. To think the Disney diva gave her all that free promo by covering “Royals” on tour. Shady.
Is the Kiwi singer forgiven? Let us know in the comments below.
