Taylor Swift & Lorde Shake Shack Date

taylor-swift-lorde-lunch-dateTaylor Swift and Lorde pictured dining at Shake Shack on New York’s Madison Avenue. Lorde previously said that Taylor is ‘so flawless, and so unattainable, and I don’t think it’s breeding anything good in young girls. ‘I’m never going to be like Taylor Swift. Why can’t I be as pretty as Lorde?’ That’s fucking bullshit.’

Lorde responded on Tumblr: ‘I think I cocked that up a bit and what I said wasn’t put in context. 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 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.’

Then Lorde backpedaled: ‘I feel like Taylor Swift is a really good role model. The girls who listen to her music are so devoted to her. I think what she’s saying is pretty cool. I think it’s empowering.’

    I don’t like lorde’s style at all (gothic junkie hobo)

    • in jesus name i pray amen

      i prefer this than some attention seeking whore that dresses for shock value tbqh. At least you know she’s dressing like this as a personal style, as opposed to trying to make some statement

    I just think it’s kind of hilarious that despite all the nay saying Lorde does, she has somehow become friends with the very people she has talked about. BUT, I must agree that there probably was some misquoting and word-twisting done by the media that has given Lorde that sort of appearance.

      i feel like the media totally twists her words in an attempt to make her look like this vulnerable naive newly famous little girl who could give a fuck about being famous. literally the first time i heard royals the radio announcer was like this song is amazing and the girl doesnt even want to be famous. well thats bullshit because in orer for your song to be that great that its #1 for over a month a lot of effort goes into it and you have to care about promoting it and getting it out there

    Lorde prolly pissed herself hanging out with Tswift

  • asfwre

    I feel like Taylor is like a puppet master in young hollywood. She lures you in with talks of kittens and fresh cookies,and then she lets you know not to cross her or you will pay lol. I’m kidding :p. That’s cool that they can hang out. I do wonder how Selena would react though.
