Shes still a newbie in the pop music world, and apparently Lorde has decided its a little too early to be making high-profile enemies.
The Royals songbird took to her Tumblr to clarify her comments regarding Taylor Swift, including, Shes so flawless so unattainable I dont think its breeding anything good in young girls. Im never going to be like Taylor Swift, why cant I be as pretty as Lorde Thats f*cking bullsh*t.
After considering her sentiments, Lorde posted a blog to say, i think i cocked that up a bit and what i said wasnt put in context also. what i meant was: theres a lot of importance placed on physical perfection in this industry, and i wish my favorite stars didnt look perfect because i think fans (me included) have these feelings of worthlessness, like theyll never be as pretty/talented/whatever, as a result of this intense photoshop culture and the endless strive for perfection. ts was the first person i thought of, which i regret. she happens to be good looking, but i think she actually uses her other imperfections in an incredibly powerful and relatable way. taylor swift has a very unique vision, which i admire. i think somewhere along the line also there was a misquote where people got the impression i thought writing about love was shameful. i dont! i just havent found a way of doing it which is powerful and innovative, which is why i dont.
ps. i am very very new to this whole thing. 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.
