Lorde Apologizes For Taylor Swift Bash


Can you explain on what you said about Taylor swift because I feel like many didn’t understand: Lorde Tumblr: sure! i think i cocked that up a bit and what i said wasn’t put in context also. what i meant was:

there’s a lot of importance placed on physical perfection in this industry, and i wish my favourite stars didn’t look perfect because i think fans (me included) have these feelings of worthlessness, like they’ll 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 don’t! i just haven’t found a way of doing it which is powerful and innovative, which is why i don’t.

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.
