Lorde sparked a major backlash when she described Taylor Swift‘s image as “unobtainable” for teenage girls and labelled Selena Gomez‘s “Come & Get It” as anti-feminist. The 16-year-old then made an apology but soon retracted it, declaring: “I don’t think I say anything that isn’t backed up.”
Selena Gomez responded to the jibes with grace but swiftly dropped “Royals” (which she had been covering) from her Stars Dance tour setlist. Well, it seems Cher Lloyd is less diplomatic. When asked about the situation, the Brit had some choice words for Lorde. “What a knob. Why would she do that? She’s sitting at number one.”
“I think she’s going to eat her words,” the “I Wish” diva continued. “I think for someone who’s gaining so much success so early, she should be considering herself lucky.” Cher then mused how she would respond if Lorde criticized her and said: “If she said something about me, it’d be a different story… I probably would have used foul language.”
Do you think Cher has a point or should she mind her own business? Have your say in the comments below.
