Lorde Quotes About Taylor Swift's Squad July 2017

Lorde Clarifies Her Comments About Not Being Part of Taylor Swift's Squad

You may remember Lorde comparing her friendship with Taylor Swift to an autoimmune disease while promoting her album Melodrama a couple of weeks ago. Well, the "Green Light" singer initially seemed to hint that she isn't as close with Taylor as people think she is. When asked how it felt to suddenly be hanging out with her celebrity idols in an interview with Australia's Sunrise, she said, "I don't hang out with these people at all." Host David Koch then brought up the fact that she's part of Taylor's squad, to which she replied, "You make friends in different places, but I think for the most part, I'm not calling up my idols for advice necessarily."

Lorde later clarified her comments in a Twitter statement, saying they were misconstrued. "Wow — something of a frustrating thing to have to address online but here we go. Taylor is a dear friend. I love her very much. In the interview in question I had just been talking about Bowie and Patti Smith — those were the 'idols' I was referring to that I was saying I'm not friends with, not Taylor!" she wrote. "Really sh*tty to wake up to headlines about whether or not you've jumped ship on someone you deeply respect and ride for." Read her message in full below.
