Scene & Heard: Lorde’s Taylor Swift “Diss”

Take note, dolls: if you ever talk about me behind my back, it better be in the form of a backhanded compliment like this one Lorde gave to Taylor Swift during a recent interview:

“Taylor Swift is so flawless, and so unattainable, and I don’t think it’s breeding anything good in young girls.”

So, basically my new music obsession is saying that T.Swizzle isn’t a good role model because she’s so perfect. Gasp!

Okay everyone, pick your jaws up off the floor… Lorde explained the “diss” saying that her quote was taken out of context. She wrote on her Tumblr, “[Taylor] happens to be good looking, but I think she actually uses her other imperfections in an incredibly powerful and relatable way…I will probably never be the kind of role model for my fans that TS is for hers….I admire her very much for this reason. Basically, this is an apology for not thinking too hard before I speak. Peace.”

Is this the most anticlimactic celebrity “feud” ever, or do you covet Lorde’s ability to say something so nice and yet so mean at the same time?

    I don’t think Taylor is perfect at all.. The only thing she could learn to her fans is how to be a little slut. And if you break up you need to write songs about it and diss them in songs.. so sad. Sorry, I’m not sorry.

  2. Georgie Said:

    I don’t think she’s perfect. But I agree with Lorel:
    Taylor is a BETTER role model than all the other so-called “stars”. She’s kind, always caring for her fans and she never attacks papparazzi etc – and she’s wearing clothes in her music videos. Stop calling her a slut – she’s probably a better person than YOUR idols.

  3. Is Said:

    Uh oh! Looks like Ruby is doing some SLUT SHAMING. Which is weird. Because Taylor isn’t a slut. Last I checked, unless she suddenly started screwing all the guys she was writing songs about, the she’d be a slut. But even then, Ruby sounds like one of those puritanical assholes that’s been brained washed into thinking sex is a sin, and that sex is be-all, end-all.

  4. Truth. Said:

    Lorde speaks the truth and does it eloquently. I can see why Tweens who simply don’t get it could get all sensitive over someone speaking their mind. But at the end of the day, the truth come out and at times the truth hurts. Go Lorde, keep doing as you do cause you’re doing great.

    Also bear in mind that Lorde is younger than both Taylor and Selena, yet has a more mature concept and understanding with both her songs and actions.

  5. alexa Said:

    so surprising how she t.swift always sings about what has been done to her never about what she has done to them. i think she is a hypocrite

  6. Margo Said:

    Who’s Taylor Swift anyway, ew?

  7. Leesh Said:

    Nice one Margo, clever(; I do admire Lorde’s eloquence.
