All possibilities of respect for Lorde are dwindling at a fast pace. At the age of 17, she’s sparked more haterade against her fellow musicians than a majority of her older successful predecessors. (Guess ‘making friends’ isn’t exactly on her industry bucket list.)
Despite her declaration that her feelings are “backed up,” the constant negativity is not okay (in our opinion. Join the debate!). To see all the celebrities she’s dissed since the release of “Royals,” click through the gallery below:
To Metro magazine: "Taylor Swift is so flawless, and so unattainable, and I don't think it's breeding anything good in young girls. 'I'm never going to be like Taylor Swift. Why can't I be as pretty as Lorde?' That's f***ing bull****."
To MTV News: "I really appreciate that people think that I'm doing something good for the 'kids.' The 'young people.' I feel like the influences that are there in the industry for people my age, like Justin Bieber or whatever, are just maybe not a very real depiction of what it's like to be a young person."
"I love pop music on a sonic level. But I'm a feminist and the theme of [Selena's] song [Come & Get It] is, 'When you're ready, come and get it from me.' I’m sick of women being portrayed this way."
Thankfully, Selena called Lorde out in a very public forum.
"One Direction are pretty overrated and their music isn't really good. I find it odd they're famous."
Disney Channel Stars (Like Miley Cyrus)
To GQ: "The difference between those [Disney] kids and me is that I grew up completely normally and went to parties and had that experience. I am way less inclined to be like, 'Look! I'm f***ing mental!'"
When asked if she'd collab with the EDM star: "No. F*** no. He's so gross."
David's reaction: "I didn't ask her. I think my record company did, and, I mean, I don't really have any comment."
Lana Del Rey
To The Fader: "I listened to that Lana Del Rey record and the whole time I was just thinking it's so unhealthy for young girls to be listening to, you know: 'I'm nothing without you.' This sort of shirt-tugging, desperate, 'don't leave me' stuff. That's not a good thing for young girls, even young people, to hear."
Macklemore & Ryan LewisTo MTV News on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' setlist: "Do you know when Macklemore plays, they open and close with "Thrift Shop?" That's bad."
To Interview magazine: "Around the middle of last year, I started listening to a lot of rap, like Nicki Minaj and Drake, as well as pop singers like Lana Del Rey. They all sing about such opulence, stuff that just didn't relate to me -- or anyone that I knew. I began thinking, 'How are we listening to this? It's completely irrelevant.'"
