Cher dissed Lorde after the outspoken ‘Royals’ singer called Selena an ‘anti-feminist.’ Cher’s no stranger to a celebrity feud (see ‘Cheryl Cole’), so Selena’s definitely got a fighter in her corner!

Cher Lloyd, 20, isn’t one to mess with. And now The X Factor UK contestant has sided with Selena Gomez, 21, after 16-year-old Lorde called her an “anti-feminist.” Cher is having none of it!

Cher Lloyd On Lorde: ‘She’s A Knob’

Uh-oh. Selena may have politely dissed Lorde after bad-mouthing the Disney star’s ‘Come and Get It’ track — but Cher isn’t playing nice. Cher said the ‘Royals’ singer is a “knob,” in an interview with J-14.

We’re thinking the mag didn’t pick up the English slang — ’cause that’s a serious diss. Cher praised the young talent, but went on to say she didn’t understand why the singer ripped Selena. She ranted:

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.

We definitely agree with Cher, but shouldn’t she follow her own advice? Cher made her TV debut in 2010 on The X Factor and was taken under singer Cheryl Cole‘s wing. After placing fourth on the show, the then 16-year-old publicly slammed Cheryl during a radio interview, accusing her of lip-synching.

See the connection, Cher? We’re going to guess Lorde won’t be taking the Brit singer’s advice anytime soon.

Lorde Stands By Her Comment

Despite social media backlash and a public diss by Joe Jonas, 24, Lorde’s unfazed. Instead, the starlet has defended herself and told reporters that she doesn’t take the comment back.

“I have pretty strong morals and opinions being in pop music, and I can’t help but express those, which I think people appreciate,” Lorde told MTV News.

She may have said some not-so -nice things, but we have to admit she’s pretty tough for a 16-year-old!

Lorde went on to say, “I mean, I don’t think I say anything that isn’t backed up. Most of the time I will stand by things that I’ve said.” Ouch!

Lorde’s even gone on to diss Justin Bieber, 19, Miley Cyrus, 20, and Taylor Swift, 23. Let’s hope the list won’t get any longer.

What do YOU think Hollywood Lifers? Should Lorde stop dissing your favorite celebs? Sound off!
