Second 'Tell Me Why' post of the week, I apologize. Basically I want to know though, what's up with everyone hating on Lorde? Last night it was brough to my attention by a very rude tweet via Joe Jonas that people are actually getting bent out of shape because of some of her comments.
Here's the tweet:
FIRST OFF, I really like Lorde's voice and her new album is beyond amazing. Am I her biggest fan? Not in the slightest. When I first saw his tweet I wondered why he would say such a thing so I obviously took to the twittersphere to figure it out and it seems Lorde said something about Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez.
What Lorde said about Taylor Swift was this: "“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–king bulls–t,”
She then explained her actions and said that she was trying to point out that celebrities sometimes focus on looking perfect and in return make their fans feel lesser than them, in a sense. You can read it all on her tumblr page if you want.
But, are we forgetting when Joe Jonas broke up with Taylor Swift on the phone in a 27 second phone call?
Yeah Joe, pretty sure that hurt more than Lorde's comment calling Taylor TOO PERFECT.
The next thing that people were saying was that Lorde called out Selena for her porocative song "Come and Get It" which, is her opinion and irrelevant because that song is so three months ago. But, just for the sake of bring it back up, the song is about her waiting for a guy to 'come and get it' so when Lorde, as a feminist heard it and commented: ""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." people of course, picked it apart.
So, we can all preach about Robin Thicke saying he wants it but, Lorde can't say she wishes Selena wouldn't tell people to come and get it? Wow.
Then, there's the Demi thing. People are saying that Lorde said that Demi "breaks chairs, and not records."
I googled it, nothing. I got absolutely no proof of this ever being said and if someone has proof, then I'd like to see it because I highly doubt it exists.
Just because Lorde is the underdog and she is new to the game doesn't mean you can manipulate every thing she says and make it seem like she's a bad person. Not everyone's going to keep their mouth shut just because they're getting famous, lots of people still have opinions and that's why I don't hate Joe Jonas for his opinion. But...
TELL ME WHY you think people are hating on Lorde below and then stayed tuned for my next Tell Me Why next week! (I like to rant a lot, sorry)
and Lorde gif because, just because.
