Lorde loves Taylor but not part of her squad
Turns out, there’s no bad blood between American singers Lorde (above) and Taylor Swift (above right) after all. In a recent interview, Lorde made comments that some interpreted as suggesting she was on the outs with the 27-year-old singer, but now, the New Zealand pop star has set the record straight. Taking to her Twitter page, she wrote, “Wow, something of a frustrating thing to have to address online, but here we go. Taylor is a dear friend. I love her very much. In the interview in question I had just been talking about Bowie and Patti Smith, those were the idols I was referring to that I was saying I’m not friends with, not Taylor!? (sic).
The Green Light hitmaker added, “Really shitty to wake up to headlines about whether or not you’ve jumped ship on someone you deeply respect and ride for. I want to say one more time that Taylor has been there for me in all my dark and light moments these past 5 years. All of them. I f***ed up an interview question. Now go sip a beverage and head out on a walk.”
In the interview with David Koch, when asked about befriending some of the people she idolises, like Beyonce and Swift, the 20-year-old had said, “The second you think too hard about it, you’ll just go insane.” She had then clarified, “I don’t hang out with these people at all.” “Hang on!” Koch said. “You’re part of Taylor’s squad, we have seen all the magazines!” Lorde shook her head at the notion. “You know, you make friends in different places. But I don’t call my idols for advice necessarily.”
