Lorde Halts Taylor Swift Story Tabloid Bullshit In Its Tracks

Lorde has addressed a comment she made after appearing on Channel 7 Australia’s tabloid TV show Sunrise as beat-up bullshit.

In the Sunrise interview host David Koch asked Lorde about “befriending her idols” and being “part of Taylor’s squad”. Her comments were then twisted by tabloids to make it look like there was a Lorde vs Taylor Swift feud and that the two stars were no longer friends.

Lorde’s response to Koch’s question about musical heroes was, “”The second you think too hard about it, you’ll just go insane, so it’s best to be like, ‘We’re in Wonderland. That’s just what happens around here.’ Like, also, I don’t hang out with these people at all.”

Gossip sites such as Cosmopolitan misinterpreted the words and ran with their own assumption of the fakes. Lorde has quickly come out to halt the tabloid bullshit in its tracks.

The full statement:

“wow – something of a frustrating thing to have to address online but here we go”.

“taylor is a dear friend. i love her very much.

“in the interview in question i had just been talking about bowie and patti smith – those were the ‘idols’ i was referring to that i was saying i’m not friends with, not taylor!”

“i’ve always found people’s perception of this ‘squad’ idea frustrating in the past; it was never some exclusive club or secret society, but a wide circle of people, some of whom i know, and some who i’ve never met, like most wide groups of friends. forgive me for the mild eyeroll i popped when it was brought up as if we’re all blood members of a secret club.”

“really shitty to wake up to headlines about whether or not you’ve jumped ship on someone you deeply respect and ride for. i want to say one more time that taylor has been there for me in all my dark and light moments these past 5 years, all of them. i feel truly terrible that it would ever seem like i wasn’t faithfully her person.”

“i fucked up an interview question. now go sip a beverage and head out on a walk.”
