Lorde isn’t too fond of Nicki and Drake’s music, and is rather turned off by their lyrics! In a new interview with ‘Interview’ magazine, she says that they both sing about “such opulence.” Read on for more details!
Lorde is firing away at music’s top stars, once again! She revealed that while she started listening to both Nicki Minaj, 30, and Drake, 26, she quickly realized they they were “irrelevant” in the music world! Ouch!
Lorde Disses Nicki and Drake
The 16-year-old free-spirited singer is very concerned with rap music — specifically that pertaining to YMCMB, Nicki and Drake’s rap label managed by rap stars Lil’ Wayne and Birdman.
“Around the middle of last year I started listening to a lot of rap, like Nicki Minaj and Drake. YMCMB rappers create music that does not relate to most people’s lives,” Lorde told the mag. “They all sing about such opulence, stuff that just didn’t relate to me, or anyone that I knew. I began thinking, ‘How are we listening to this? It’s completely irrelevant.'”
Burn! As we know, Lorde has no qualms in expressing her mind with brash remarks towards her counterparts! While we commend her for being brutally honest, it’s only a matter of time before she meets her match!
Selena Gomez Responds To Lorde’s Diss
While several artists choose to keep mum on Lorde’s disses towards them, Selena Gomez decided to speak her mind radio interview in Boston in response to Lorde’s harsh comments during a radio interview in Boston, saying:
“There’s two different kinds of criticism. There’s the people that hide behind a computer and want to say endless amount of things but never say it to your face, and then obviously there are the vocal ones,” Selena said. “I appreciate everybody’s opinion, especially because I’ve covered her music lots of times. I think she 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. So that’s the only thing that I feel but you know, she’s young, she’s got so much talent, she’s gonna take over, she gets it, so I don’t take it to heart.”
Way to go, Selena!
