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.
