Lorde Explains Her Diplo Diss
Diplo promoted a campaign to "Get Taylor Swift A Booty" last week, and Lorde didn't appreciate the star producer's objectification of Swift. For those who haven't seen her tweet yet, it's embedded below.
Lorde recently explained her tweet during an interview with The FADER. She said, "I mean, I think often I say things and realize that Americans hear what I say differently to how I hear it. I love Wes [Diplo] and he's a big brother to me and one of my first friends in the industry, and part of having a friendship with someone like that is not letting them say stupid shit. Taylor's my friend as well, and I'm a girl, and if I see some weird body-shaming on my feed I'm going to be like, 'Hey man…' We do still love each other, hopefully."
Lorde's tweet came as a bit of a surprise, as Diplo contributed to her soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1. Diplo also remixed Lorde's "Tennis Court."
Lorde's explanation has cleared everything up, though. Hopefully Diplo understands why she sent that tweet and they are able to put this situation behind them.
