Lorde Clarifies Taylor Swift Squad Comments

Lorde is speaking out to clarify interview comments she gave that have been misconstrued into people thinking she isn’t friends with Taylor Swift anymore.

The 20-year-old singer was asked about getting to meet some of her idols and she said “I don’t hang out with these people at all.”

The way the interview video was edited, it almost sounded like she was talking about Taylor and her squad.

“Wow – something of a frustrating thing to have to address online but here we go. Taylor is a dear friend. I love her very much. In the interview in question I had just been talking about Bowie and Patti Smith – those were the ‘idols’ i was referring to that I was saying I’m not friends with, not Taylor!” Lorde said in her statement on Twitter.

“I’ve always found people’s perception of this ‘squad’ idea frustrating in the past; it was never some exclusive club or secret society, but a wide circle of people, some of whom I know, and some who I’ve never met, like most wide groups of friends. Forgive me for the mild eyeroll I popped when it was brought up as if we’re all blood members of a secret cult,” Lorde added.

“Really shitty to wake up to headlines about whether or not you’ve jumped ship on someone you deeply respect and ride for. I want to say one more time that Taylor has been there for me in all my dark and light moments these past 5 years. All of them. I feel truly terrible that it would ever seem like I wasn’t faithfully her person. I f–ked up an interview question. Now go sip a beverage and head out on a walk,” she concluded.

    Is Taylor still relevant?

  • Mike Gallett

    If someone hasn’t made songs or released album in years and they still write about that person..than hell yeah she is relevant ;-)

    It’s annoying how the media spins stuff, makes edits and interprets things in a way that actually changes what the person was originally taking about. No ethics anywhere these days.

    I’m sure Taylor’s fans bullied her into clarifying her statement.

    Sniff is such an arrogant, fake slut.

    Why is it whenever someone gets called out for saying something that rocks the boat, instead of standing by it, the reporter gets the blame. I get the feeling she got a call either from Taylor herself or one of her staff who told her to do this or she would be frozen out. Give it a week or two and like any other time something comes out showing in her in a bad light, the mags will be full of articles telling you how good a friend Taylor is and how glad they all are to have her in their lives.
