Lana Del Rey's Music is 'Irrelevent,' According to Lorde

Lana Del Rey's Music is 'Irrelevent,' According to Lorde

Lana Del Rey and her boyfriend Barrie James O’Neill get affectionate with each other while leaving a furniture store on Tuesday afternoon (November 26) in Los Angeles.

The 27-year-old singer headed to a 7-11 convenience store while Barrie grabbed the couple some beverages at Starbucks. Earlier in the day, Lana wore a white top and jeans while getting lunch with a male pal.

Lorde recently called Lana and some other artists’ music irrelevant.

“Around the middle of last year I started listening to a lot of rap, like Nicki Minaj and Drake, as well as pop singers like Lana Del Rey,” Lorde told Interview magazine. “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.’ I basically just wrote what we were all thinking.”

    Lorde? Aw, right. LDR music is beautiful, Lorde is too modern and it’s obvious she’s jealous.

    Not sure i agree with lorde grouping Lana in with nicki and drake?? Never heard Lana sing about anything too opulent except maybe on “young and beautiful” which was for a soundtrack to a very opulent movie. I think lorde needs to stfu and start thinking about where she is going next with her own music before she becomes irrelevant.

    Lorde needs to Shut the F Up before we’ll stop buying her music . . . Taylor, Selena now Lana etc . Selena is right Lorde indeed is Lorde Is A Bad Feminist. Her music is good but Music doesn;t make some one like her pretty inside/outside

    What on earth is Lorde talking about? I find her song SO annoying yet I can listen to an entire Lana Del Rey without being bored. Lorde needs to respect people that have been around longer then her or else she’s gonna be just another a has-been FAST.

    Lorde is a 17 year that age is ok to talk ****…i guess she’ll grow up and realize how stupid is all this

    Such BS! Check Lorde’s twitter. They totally twist her words so that it looks lile she’s dissing people, when she is NOT!

    Stop it. This is all media flourish, she never said anything bad about anyone….

    Summer Says:

    The only time she is in the news these days is when she is dissing someone. I like her song and I like her, but her attitude of dissing other artists is getting annoying now.

    she’s burning her bridges…and she’s just 1 mediocre song old..not sure how long she’ll survive if she keeps going at this rate.

    Lana Says:

    I like Lana’s music, she has a sweet voice. Lorde is an arrogant brat who looks like she’s 35….and UGLY. She’s always so rude and insulting to everyone, that people need to stop buying her music, then maybe she’ll go back to New Zealand and stay there.

    Lorde is talking like her music is a gift from the damn Lord himself. has anyone heard some of her lyrics?
    “Now we’re wearing long sleeves and the heating comes on
    (You buy me orange juice)
    We’re getting good at this
    Dreams of clean teeth”
    WTF DOES THAT EVEN MEAN? sit down lorde or swerve or something.

    Her music is awful. Lana Del Rey at least is smoother. Someone get Lorde a decent PR advisor quick smart!

    I’ve been following Lana’s career for years, if you really know her work you will know that she is a very good songwriter. Lorde needs to STFU, one song wonder and it ain’t even all that.

    Drake Says:

    You totally twisted Lorde’s words. She said OPULENCE is irrelevant, not Lana Del Rey.

    ugh Says:

    What a stupid headline. She called the things Lana sung about irrelevant to teenagers like Lorde herself… Lorde is passionate about music. Stop bashing her for her opinions.

    lorde is an idiot. she knows she has nothing to offer as an artist so she talks sh*t about other artists knowing it will make headlines. pathetic.

    liz Says:

    that little brat apparently never learned manners, or the lesson of “respecting your elders.” what she needs is a nice slap in the face.

    “she’s always so rude”… like your comment is nice constructive criticism pfff you hypocrite!

  22. 22

    No.14; Did she say anything about nice looking package in the above pix?

  23. 23

    No.8; You are right of course. Most 17 year-old virgin girls don’t know a nice sack when they see one for the first time.

    Anna Says:

    @ugh: She needs to learn how to talk to to the media, she is ******** her career. Whether she dissed them or not, she has dissed other artists. She needs to learn her place in the industry, one hit doesn’t make you amazing.

    Amy Says:

    This girl keeps naming dropping for attention. If she was talented she wouldn’t need to do this. Birdy is a much better singer anyway.
