Taylor Swift Reveals Lorde & Hayley Kiyoko Friendships Happened After They Publicly Criticized Her

Taylor Swift says that she became friends with both Lorde and Hayley Kiyoko after they publicly criticized her.

The 29-year-old “The Archer” singer opened up in a new interview with Rolling Stone.

“Some of my best friendships came from people publicly criticizing me and then it opening up a conversation,” Taylor said. “Hayley Kiyoko was doing an interview and she made an example about how I get away with singing about straight relationships and people don’t give me s–t the way they give her s–t for singing about girls — and it’s totally valid.”

“Like, EllaLorde — the first thing she ever said about me publicly was a criticism of my image or whatever,” Taylor continued. “But I can’t really respond to someone saying, ‘You, as a human being, are fake.’ And if they say you’re playing the victim, that completely undermines your ability to ever verbalize how you feel unless it’s positive.”

“So, OK, should I just smile all the time and never say anything hurts me?” Taylor Swift added. “Because that’s really fake. Or should I be real about how I’m feeling and have valid, legitimate responses to things that happened to me in my life? But wait, would that be playing the victim?”

Lena Dunham Breaks Silence on Jack Antonoff & Lorde Rumors, Admits She Hasn't Talked to Lorde Since Her Breakup

Lena Dunham is candidly speaking about the rumors that her friend Lorde and her ex boyfriend Jack Antonoff dated after her and Jack‘s early 2018 breakup.

“It was so embarrassing…It was awful because I felt like a weird…I don’t think anything happened between them,” Lena told The Cut. “I can never know someone else’s life. I have never spoken to Ella [Lorde] about it. We haven’t talked since Jack and I broke up. It was awful, and I couldn’t do anything about it except trust that what he was saying to me was true.”

Jack denied any rumors that he was romantically involved with Lorde. If you don’t know, Jack co-wrote and co-produced her album Melodrama.

About her five-year romance with Jack, Lena added, “Our relationship probably lasted longer than it should have. He’s a very loyal person, so he was not going to bail when the going got tough. He literally held my hand while I got an enema on New Year’s Eve while his family celebrated. But when you’re sick, so much energy goes into making sure the other person is well that you’re not even noticing maybe our schedules aren’t compatible. Maybe we want different things out of our lives. Maybe we have different attitudes about what family means. Maybe these essential questions that people have to ask themselves all the time are not being asked, because we just want to make sure that I don’t pass out at the grocery store.”

Lorde Accuses Kanye West & Kid Cudi of Copying Stage Design

Lorde is calling out Kanye West and Kid Cudi after discovering their new stage design is very similar to her own.

The 22-year-old singer took to her Instagram story to share several photos of her stage, which features a floating glass box.

Kanye and Cudi‘s stage design during their performance at Camp Flog Gnaw this past weekend featured an almost identical box.

“I’m proud of the work I do and it’s flattering when other artists feel inspired by it, to the extent that they choose to try it on themselves,” Lorde wrote.

She continued, “But don’t steal – not from women or anyone else – not in 2018 or ever.”

FYI: If you don’t know, the designer of Lorde‘s set, Es Devlin, has also been designing sets for Kanye since 2005, TMZ reports. She’s helped him with his Touch The Sky, Glow in the Dark, Watch the Throne, YEEZUS and Saint Pablo tours.

Lorde Clears Up Social Media, Leaves Only 3 Instagram Posts

Lorde has done some spring cleaning on her social media pages.

The 21-year-old singer deleted all of her tweets all the way back to November of last year.

Lorde also deleted all the photos from her Instagram account, leaving up only a few, one from each year for the last three years.

Fans took notice of the change during the 2018 Met Gala, and one fan has a theory of what the photos she left up could mean.

“first post: lorde, on stage, the leader of an army. second: her army of children (us) waiting to be given the words, watching her in the crowd. third: we have to ‘trust her’, presumably when she gives us the words,” they wrote.

Could this all be because Lorde is getting ready to release some music??

Lorde Apologizes for Posting Photo of Bathtub with Whitney Houston Quote

Lorde is apologizing after she posted a photo of a bathtub with a Whitney Houston lyric as the caption.

The 21-year-old singer didn’t realize when she posted the photo that the late singer died in a bathtub. She instantly received backlash for the post and promptly deleted it.

“Extremely extremely poorly chosen quote. I’m so sorry for offending anyone – I hadn’t even put this together I was just excited to take a bath,” she wrote in an Instagram story. “I’m an idiot. Love Whitney forever and ever. Sorry again.”

She later added, “It is not my FKN day today.”
