Lorde peers out from behind an ornate gate in this shot from the summer issue of Dazed magazine.
The 18-year-old “Royals” singer was interviewed by Girls‘ Lena Dunham for her cover story, and the two bonded over their relationship with singer Taylor Swift.
“Speaking of camp mother, I feel that Taylor (Swift) has really taken control and said, ‘I’m going to get us all together in the same place, I’m gonna make it very clear that friendship is powerful and women are magic and if anybody thinks this is a witches’ coven they might be right.’ She’s just made it her job in a very cool way,” Lena shared, speaking with Lorde.
Lorde agreed, “Yeah! I mean, she definitely brought me into this amazing world of supportive female friendship. For me, someone starts talking about boys and I’m like, ‘I just don’t know what to say.’ I’m useless in that capacity and that was why I thought, ‘Well, I can’t have girl friends (because) I don’t know how to talk about boys.’”
She added, “But Taylor just glosses over the fact that I’m terrible at that and she’s just like, ‘It’s OK, I’ll love you for your other qualities.’”
Lena Dunham waves to the cameras while stepping out in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City on Thursday (June 4).
The 29-year-old actress was attacked by Sarah Palin that day. The former politician called her a pedophile in a heated post directed at the media’s coverage of the Duggar scandal.
“HEY LENA, WHY NOT LAUGH OFF EVERYONE’S SEXUAL ‘EXPERIMENTS’ AS YOU HAUGHTILY ENJOY REWARDS FOR YOUR OWN PERVERSION? YOU PEDOPHILE, YOU,” Sarah started off her Facebook post.
“I’m sickened that the media gives their chosen ones a pass for any behavior as long as they share their leftwing politics. Case in point, they suggest Lena Dunham‘s sexual assault on her sibling is cute, and she’s rewarded for it with fame and fortune. Meanwhile, they crucify another, along with an entire family,” Sarah continued.
In the mag, the six ladies open up about sexism in the industry, sex scenes, penis bags and why women need to stop apologizing.
Amy on sexism: “I think people hate women. I don’t think they want to hear a woman talk for too long. A lot of people project their mom yelling at them. My [career] has been about tricking people into listening. I’m not saying all men hate women, but there’s such an aggression.”
Lena on the comedy community: “I also hate how the comedy community is so defensive. People are unwilling to learn. There was a big issue a few years ago with Daniel Tosh and rape jokes. But there couldn’t be a civil conversation about it within the comedy community. I’m a sexual-assault survivor, so I would love to sit down and have a totally nonjudgmental conversation with a male comedian who makes rape jokes. But there isn’t room for that.”
Gina on racism: “I don’t believe it’s an issue of hard-core rac- ism [in Hollywood]. It’s lack of being surrounded by a culture. It’s also about what Hollywood finds financially beneficial. So when we show them shows like Jane the Virgin and Fresh Off the Boat. Show them it’s all a good investment. And it’s not about race. When you vilify it, people shut down.”
