Lorde admits to being in "awe" of Taylor Swift
It seems 2014 has Lorde singing a different tune!
The New Zealand singer recently told MTV News she is in “awe” of Taylor Swift, insisting her capability as a performer is “insane.”
“She is so good as a performer. I don't think people realise how difficult a stadium is to perform in,” she gushed.
“You have to change how you move and how you talk to accommodate that scale, and she is SO good at that… It feels natural when she does it,” added the Kiwi.
She also admitted to listening to Swift’s Album, ‘Red’ every now and again and doesn’t mind grooving to ‘We Are Never Getting back Together.’
While it seems all sugar and spice between the pair, it was only a few months ago that Lorde told Metro Magazine that the ‘22’ singer’s image was “so flawless, and so unattainable, and I don't think it's breeding anything good in young girls.”
She later apologised however, claiming her words were out of context.
“What i meant was: there’s a lot of importance placed on physical perfection in this industry…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,” she said in a statement on Tumblr.
It appears the pair have well and truly put their differences behind them however, instead teaming up as BFFs after being spotted on various outings together.
Recently Lorde was photographed celebrating Taylor’s 24th birthday at a garden themed party in Melbourne. Lorde look relaxed and happy as she posed for Instagram pictures, in which Taylor captioned: “The best birthday I’ve ever had.”
While the 'Royals' singer is known for speaking her mind when it comes to other artists, 2014 may be the year she remains tight-lipped... Which means we're forced to become mind readers. Oh, Lorde!
