In a world of Kendall and Kylie Jenner it’s so freaking refreshing that Lorde exists. Lorde sings that song ‘Royals’ and she is the same age as Kylie Jenner. Kylie Jenner…um…posts a lot of pictures of her boobs on her instagram, her sister is a porn star, and her family has a reality show…not sure what she does. OH WAIT! She models. That’s right…she models with her sister…for a clothing line.
Lorde has a hit song/album and has this to say:
On her love of mainstream pop music:
“It’s magical. Why is it shameful to like this music, or write this music?”
But does she want to work with David Guetta?
“No. F— no. He’s so gross.”
On the accusations that her song “Royals” is racist:
“I mean, I was 15 when I wrote that song. I wasn’t thinking about anyone’s cultural aspirations. I was being a bit silly. I don’t know. I can understand [the response] now, and it’s probably not my place to even comment on it. It’s just one of those kind of uncomfortable grey areas.”
Is she a feminist?
“Absolutely. Wholeheartedly. I think women who say, ‘No, I’m not a feminist — I love men,’ I think that is just… You don’t know what it means. You think it means that, ‘I don’t shave under my arms, I burn my bras. F— men!’ How could you be so uneducated, and so unwilling to learn about something which is so important to you?”
On being outspoken:
“You’re never going to appeal to everyone. You might as well have some sort of belief system.”
I love her. She’s calling people gross, she’s standing up for her creativity and she’s admitting she’s a feminist and she understands that doesn’t mean you hate men. Thank you Universe for Lorde!
