Cher Lloyd reckons Lorde is a ‘knob’ for slamming Selena Gomez’s new track Come & Get It.
The 16-year-old Royals singer said Justin Bieber’s ex girlfriend’s suggestive song was putting out a ‘anti-feminist message’ and Lloyd, 20, isn’t prepared to let it slide.
Speaking about the up-and-coming New Zealander’s criticism of Gomez, Lloyd ranted: ‘Why does she have to go and do that? She’s doing so well – what a knob.
‘Why would she do that? She’s sitting at number one. I think she’s going to eat her words, which she obviously already has, and I think for someone who’s gaining so much success so early, she should be considering herself lucky – it takes a lot of work.
‘You know what though? If she said something about me, it’d be a different story. I wouldn’t stand for any of that, I’d be straight back on it,’ she jibed.
Gomez responded to Lorde – real name Ella O’Connor – saying: ’I think she [Lorde] is super talented and I think it’s awesome. But I think at the same time that feminism and that specific thing is very sensitive because in my opinion it’s not feminism if you’re tearing down another artist.’
But Lloyd says she wouldn’t have been so polite.
‘I probably would have used foul language,’ she added to J-14.
