Selena Gomez Drama With Lorde @selenagomez

selena2Apparently, Selena Gomez admires and respects Lorde, but the admiration is certainly not reciprocated. Here is what Lorde had to say regarding Selena:

“I love pop music on a sonic level, but I’m a feminist and the theme of her song [‘Come & Get It’] is, ‘When you’re ready come and get it from me.’ I’m sick of women being portrayed this way.”

Selena retaliated in a classy fashion:

“I recently did an interview and they asked me who I thought was up-and-coming and making a difference. I said, ‘She doesn’t like me, but Lorde.’ I’m going to support her whether she likes me or not because I think she’s doing great things. Some day I will see her and we’ll be cool.”

After the incident, Selena stopped covering “Royals” on her Stars Dance Tour. Furthermore, she questioned if Lorde is actually a true feminist:

“I appreciate everybody’s opinion, especially because I’ve covered her music lots of times. I think she is super talented and I think it’s awesome. But I think at the same time that feminism and that specific thing is very sensitive because in my opinion it’s not feminism if you’re tearing down another artist. So that’s the only thing that I feel. But you know, she’s young, she’s got so much talent, she’s gonna take over, she gets it, so I don’t take it to heart.”

Whose side are you on?
