Lorde loves Tay­lor but not part of her squad

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

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.”
