Selena Gomez Doesn’t Think Lorde Is a Very Good Feminist
Speaking with Flaunt magazine, the former Disney starlet claims the Kiwi songstress isn’t abiding by the so-called rules of feminism, responding to the diss Lorde dished earlier this year about Gomez’s alleged anti-feminist “Come & Get It” lyrics.
“That’s not feminism,” Gomez tells the publication, adding that she’s been a staunch supporter of the 16-year-old. “[Lorde is] not supporting other women. That’s my honest opinion, that’s what I would say to her if I saw her.”
The singer, who’s been performing Lorde’s breakout hit “Royals” throughout her tour, continues, “I actually covered her song in all of my shows that I’ve done so far. I’m not sure if I’m going to continue that.” Gomez has since resorted to singing Katy Perry’s “Roar” instead.
Previously, Lorde too aim at Gomez in an interview with Rolling Stone, saying, “I love pop music on a sonic level. But I’m a feminist and the theme of her song [“Come & Get It”] is, ‘When you’re ready come and get it from me.’ I’m sick of women being portrayed this way.”
