I always knew there was a reason I never cared what 16-year-olds had to say. It’s because whatever it is that comes out of their mouths is usually asinine. Like Lorde. Apart from the overplayed “Royals,” she has one of the best albums this year. But god is she annoying. Talking to Q Magazine, she gave her thoughts on Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance.
“I’m a feminist, so certain things about music I find frustrating. I think pop is scarily powerful. There are a lot of shock tactics these days. People trying to outdo each other, which will probably culminate in two people fucking on stage at the Grammys. I try to keep my blinkers on and focus on making music.”
As soon as any girl starts a response with “I’m a feminist,” my eyes roll back into my head, I tilt my head back and bees start pouring out of my mouth. She shared a similar sentiment about Selena Gomez’s single “Come & Get It” back in September.
“I love pop music on a sonic level,” Lorde told Rolling Stone. “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.”
She sure sounds like a lot of fun to be around at parties.
Also, don’t expect her to work with David Guetta any time soon. During an interview with FasterLouder, Lorde’s manager, Scott Maclachlan, told her Guetta was interested in collaborating with her. She declined. Why? Because he’s icky.
“F–k no. He’s so gross.”
A totally valid reason for not working with another artist. I hear “Eww, go away,” is the number one reason for a lot of declined collaborations.
