It wasn’t so long ago that Selena and Lorde were trading disses about what it means to be a feminist, but the two singers looked awfully cozy with mutual friend Taylor Swift at the AMAs on Nov. 23. Does this mean they’ve called a truce?
It looks like Selena Gomez, 22, and Lorde, 18, have finally set aside their differences! The two artists, who both gave amazing performances at the AMAS in Los Angeles on Nov. 23, were pictured sitting next to each other during the big show, alongside their pal Taylor Swift, 24. Perhaps it was Taylor herself who helped them bury the hatchet!
Lorde & Selena Gomez Feud Over? — Girls Sit Side-By-Side At AMAs
They’re the three best friends that anyone could have! Selena, Lorde and Taylor made a cozy trio at the AMAs last night, and while we could have predicted that Taylor would dance her way through the show, we did NOT expect to see her doing it with BOTH of her BFFs by her side.
Tay showed her support when Lorde took the stage to sing her new song “Yellow Flicker Beat,” and when Selena delivered a tearful performance of “The Heart Wants What It Wants.”
But more importantly, Lorde and Selena seemed to finally be supporting each other, which is just what Sel has always hoped for. Feminists unite!
Selena Gomez Disses Lorde For Picking Catfights In New Interview
Selena and Lorde’s feud first ignited in January 2014, when Lorde slammed Sel’s hit song “Come & Get It” as anti-feminist during an interview with Rolling Stone magazine.
“I love pop music on a sonic level,” she said at the time. “But I’m a feminist and the theme of her song [Come & Get It] is, ‘When you’re ready come and get it from me.’ I’m sick of women being portrayed this way.”
When asked about the diss later during an interview with Flaunt magazine, Selena was quick to fire shots right back at Lorde:
“That’s not feminism. [Lorde is] not supporting other women. That’s my honest opinion, that’s what I would say to her if I saw her,” Selena said at the time. “I actually covered her song [“Royals”] in all of my shows that I’ve done so far. I’m not sure if I’m going to continue that.”
Selena also responded to Lorde’s diss during a Boston radio interview, 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. 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.
And it looks like she really didn’t — good for Sel!
So HollywoodLifers, are YOU glad that Selena and Lorde have made up? Let us know.
