Lorde has cleared up a story about her supposedly saying she is not a fan of Nicki Minaj or Drake.
She sent out a few tweets clearing the air on Tuesday (November 26). She wrote: “Nice try @ComplexMag, but i have nothing but love and admiration for both nicki and drake (have said this x1000).”
The 17-year-old also said, “Just because their songs aren’t my reality (being 17 and from auckland) doesn’t mean i don’t admire their musicianship and careers!”

The Royals singer had been quoted in the interview, “Around the middle of last year I started listening to rap, like Nicki Minaj and Drake, as well pop singers such as Lana del Rey, They all sing about opulence, stuff that didn’t relate to me–or anyone that I knew.”
“I began thinking, ‘How are we listening to this? It’s completely irrelevant.’ I basically just wrote what we were all thinking,” she says of her debut album.
Nice that she’s using social media to get her voice out and set the record straight!
