Selena Gomez Is Still A Fan Of Lorde Despite Criticism

Selena Gomez has shared some choice comments on 16-year-old singer-songwriter Lorde, who recently implied Gomez's music was anti-feminist. Lorde has quickly gained something of a reputation for running her mouth about her contemporary pop stars - including Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, and One Direction, among others. Lorde told Rolling Stone she loves pop music "on a sonic level," but she does take issue with the messages it sends. Specifically, the New Zealander cited Gomez's hit single "Come And Get It": "I'm a feminist and the theme of [Gomez's] song is, 'When you're ready come and get it from me'... [and] I'm sick of women being portrayed in this way." This didn't go over so well with Gomez, but there are no hard feelings. The former Disney Channel sweetheart said in an interview with HOT 99.5 that in her opinion "it's not feminism if you're tearing down another artist." She went on to say that she didn't take it to heart, though, and that she thinks Lorde is "super talented." As a matter of fact, it seems Ms. Gomez is actually a fan of Lorde. She respectfully acknowledged her acceptance of the "Royals" singer's comment, and criticism in general, explaining that there's a difference between anonymous haters hidden behind computer screens and ones with the guts to be vocal about it. She said, "I appreciate everybody's opinion, especially because I've covered [Lorde's] music lots of times." I'm not sure about you, but I'd love to hear Selena Gomez cover "Royals"!
