Lorde Clears Up Comments, Says She Has “Love and Admiration For Both Nicki and Drake”

Lorde is clarifying her recent statement where she claimed Drake, Nicki Minaj and other artists’ music were "completely irrelevant."

In an interview with Interview Magazine, she exclaimed, “Around the middle of last year I started listening to a lot of rap, like Nicki Minaj and Drake, as well as pop singers like Lana Del Rey. She adds, “They all sing about such opulence, stuff that just didn't relate to me—or anyone that I knew. I began thinking, ‘How are we listening to this? It's completely irrelevant.”

Taking to Twitter to squash the chain reaction, she writes, "…I have nothing but love and admiration for both nicki and drake (have said this x1000)."

The “Royals” hitmaker continued: "Just because their songs aren’t my reality (being 17 and from auckland) doesn’t mean i don’t admire their musicianship and careers!"

That’s a fair statement!
