Shes no stranger to criticism, and it seems Selena Gomez is actually pretty good at addressing her critics with poise and grace.
In a new interview, the Birthday songstress replied to Lorde”s complaint that she portrays women in a negative light with her song Come and Get It.
Lorde previously said, I love pop music on a sonic level. But Im a feminist and the theme of her song [“Come & Get It”] is, When youre ready come and get it from me. Im sick of women being portrayed this way.
And Selena commented back, I appreciate everybodys opinion, especially because Ive covered [Lorde”s] music lots of times. I think she is super talented and I think its awesome. But in my opinion its not feminism if youre tearing down another artist. You know, shes young, shes got so much talent so I dont take it to heart.
