Leave it to Lorde to prove that she's the best and make us feel very old in the process.
The 18-year-old singer explained her monosyllabic comment on Kim Kardashian's Internet-breaking, butt-baring cover, insisting she wasn't dissing her at all.
The singer responded to a fan's question on her Tumblr asking why, if she considers herself to be a feminist, does she think it's okay to judge Kardashian for doing a naked photo shoot simply because she's a mother.
Lorde explained that she retweeted Kardashian's "AMAZING" cover and wrote "MOM," not as a diss, but as a compliment, which is what the "youthz" are saying today, according to the wunderkind.
"It basically jokingly means 'Adopt me/be my second mom/i think of you as a mother figure you are so epic' (obviously I love my own mama and she is the best tho) but straight after that I think someone else called out the cover saying Kim has no right to look that sexy as she is a mother which is TOTAL trash -- why should that stop her?" Lorde wrote. "If anything I think she gets even more beautiful and sexy all the time like a fine-ass wine, and of course has every right to showcase that."
The singer went on to explain that she believes the problem is that her comments got lumped in with other celebrities who didn't appreciate Kardashian's cover quite as much.
"I am the biggest fan of Jean-Paul Goude and of Grace Jones, as you know, and there’s no way I could support one and not the other you know? It wouldn’t make any sense to worship [Rihanna] in her Swarovski crystal gown at the CFDAs, or Grace naked on the cover of Island Life (as shot by Goude!), and not Kim. To summarize -- Kim’s cover was pure heaven," she added. "So so beautiful. I’m proud to say it’ll be on my wall."
Additionally, Lorde left us with this mystery hanging over our heads:
"PS. I messaged our mutual friend straight away and made sure Kim understood, and she does and all is well. So I hope that’s cleared up. Next time I’ll go for a good old fashioned 'SLAY' instead."
Guesses on the mutual friend?
