Lorde Vs Other Music Celebs
Since “Royals” came out in 2013, Lorde has proved herself to be an unapologetically candid interview subject. She hasn’t minced words when discussing the likes of Justin Bieber or Selena Gomez, who she think delivers an anti-feminist message in her single “Come and Get It.” She also won’t cower when faced with criticism, especially when the target is her relationship with boyfriend James Lowe.
Back in December, Tyler, The Creator took aim at the young couple on Instagram, mocking a picture of the two embracing at the beach. “Hhahahahahaa,” Tyler, The Creator captioned the snap. When Lorde asked, “was this supposed to make me feel something?” he replied, “NOT AT ALL, IT MADE ME LAUGH.”
Lorde later went on to say that those who post negative things about her relationshiop with Lowe, who is of Asian descent, are “the type of people who use the word 'f-gg-t' as an insult,” in an interview with Rolling Stone. She also admitted, "[I'm] not completely impervious to insult. I'm a human being."
Lorde’s debut album Pure Heroine was released in September 2013. In addition to “Royals,” the album features tracks “Tennis Court” and “Team.”
