Taylor Swift And Lorde Dining In New York

Taylor Swift and Lorde pictured dining at Shake Shack on New York’s Madison Avenue. Lorde previously said that Taylor is ‘so flawless, and so unattainable, and I don’t think it’s breeding anything good in young girls. ‘I’m never going to be like Taylor Swift. Why can’t I be as pretty as Lorde?’ That’s fucking bullshit.’

Lorde responded on Tumblr: ‘I think I cocked that up a bit and what I said wasn’t put in context. What I meant was: there’s a lot of importance placed on physical perfection in this industry, and I wish my favourite stars didn’t look perfect because I think fans (me included) have these feelings of worthlessness, like they’ll never be as pretty/ talented/ whatever, as a result of this intense photoshop culture and the endless strive for perfection. TS was the first person I thought of, which I regret.

She happens to be good looking, but I think she actually uses her other imperfections in an incredibly powerful and relatable way. Taylor Swift has a very unique vision, which I admire … I will probably never be the kind of role model for my fans that TS is for hers. I admire her very much for this reason.’

Then Lorde backpedaled: ‘I feel like Taylor Swift is a really good role model. The girls who listen to her music are so devoted to her. I think what she’s saying is pretty cool. I think it’s empowering.’
