Cher Lloyd told J-14 that Lorde is a ‘knob’ for slamming Selena Gomez and Come & Get It’s ‘anti-feminist message’. Cher: ‘Why does she have to go and do that? She’s doing so well, what a knob. Why would she do that? She’s sitting at number one. I think she’s going to eat her words, which she obviously already has, and I think for someone who’s gaining so much success so early, she should be considering herself lucky, it takes a lot of work.
You know what though? If she said something about me, it’d be a different story. I wouldn’t stand for any of that, I’d be straight back on it.‘ Selena responded: ’I think she [Lorde] is super talented and I think it’s awesome. But I think at the same time that feminism and that specific thing is very sensitive because in my opinion it’s not feminism if you’re tearing down another artist.’ Cher added: ‘I probably would have used foul language.’
