At just 17 years old, Lorde is building quite the reputation as a young artist you don’t want to mess with.
The “Team” singer continued her streak of candid comments with a blog post, citing a “Complex” magazine headline stating “Iggy Azalea’s ‘The New Classic’ Isn’t Really.”
In her Tumblr post, Lorde defends the “Fancy” rapper, blasting music critics for what she sees as a double standard.
“Bugs me how publications like ‘Complex’ will profile interesting artists in order to sell copies/get clicks and then s*** on their records?” she wrote. “It happens to me all the time – Pitchfork and that ilk being like ‘can we interview you?’ after totally taking the piss out of me in a review.”
Lorde continues, “Have a stance on an artist and stick to it. Don’t act like you respect them then throw them under the bus.”
