Lorde Calls Taylor Swift a Bad Role Model Because She’s “Flawless”

By  | 

MetroAnyone else feel like Lorde keeps making headlines for bashing other people rather than her music? 'cause that's exactly what's happening (again) as she flat out calls Taylor Swift a bad role model.

In her latest interview for New Zealand's Metro magazine, the 16-year-old says, "Taylor Swift 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 f—— bull****." Okay, so it's not so much a 'bashing' considering she's paying a compliment to the "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer, but still. Not entirely necessary.

Meanwhile, T.Swift's got an interview of her own going around courtesy of the November issue of Glamour UK. And, of course, she dishes on relationships: "I've seen my friends take someone back after they've cheated because they fit perfectly. But I don't know, because I've never had a perfect fit with someone."

For more of Taylor's interview, pick up the November issue of Glamour UK, on newsstands October 3.
