Taylor Swift and breakout pop singer Lorde have struck up a friendship over the past few months, and oddly enough, it all seemed to stem from some not-so-nice comments that the New Zealand star made about Taylor's BFF Selena Gomez.
In October, Lorde distanced herself from Disney-trained stars like Selena and Miley Cyrus, calling them "f*cking mental." Selena responded in turn in November, criticizing Lorde as not representing feminism because she mocks other women. Taylor is no stranger to Lorde's rather blunt statements either — Lorde had criticized Taylor for being too "flawless and unattainable," but quickly apologized for her statement on her Tumblr, saying that she actually admired Taylor. "Taylor Swift has a very unique vision, which I admire," Lorde wrote. "I will probably never be the kind of role model for my fans that TS is for hers. I admire her very much for this reason."
