27th Annual ARIA Awards 2013

 Lorde is fearless, and taking the music industry by storm!

After already bashing David Guetta and Selena Gomez, the uncensored 17-year-old is now throwing some more criticism towards Drake and Nicki Minaj for their music’s subject matter.

Lorde said:

“Around the middle of last year I started listening to a lot of rap, like Nicki Minaj and Drake. 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’.”

Yikes. I mean…she’s kind of awesome, right? But it takes some serious cajones to be that critical of such big people in the biz.  I wish Lorde the best of luck- I love her intelligence and her music. Still, I worry that these comments will come back to haunt her…

I don’t get why anyone would get their panties in a wad over this quote. She isn’t saying their MUSIC is irrelevant, she’s saying the lyrical content is irrelevant as it doesn’t relate to HER daily life. Hence, the reason why she wrote Royals… Because she’s never even seen a diamond, she doesn’t have a private jet, etc.

Good grief. People get so offended by every little thing. She’s not dissing anyone, she’s just saying it was irrelevant … To HER.
