Kiwi newcomer Lorde has raised a few eyebrows lately with her comments about fellow chart-topper Selena Gomez - and now, Brit singer Cher Lloyd has also weighed in!
The 16-year-old caused a bit of controversy recently when she told Rolling Stone that Selena's track Come & Get It goes against her feminist values, adding that she's "sick of women being portrayed in this way."
Gomez later said to Hot 99.5's The Kane Show that, while she thinks the Royals singer is "super-talented" she feels "it's not feminism if you're tearing down another artist."
Now, Swagger Jagger singer Cher Lloyd has also joined in the debate, labelling the New Zealand star "a kn*b" and saying she'll regret the comments later on.
When asked about Lorde's comments, Cher said to website J-14.com: "Why does she have to go do that? She’s doing so well - what a kn*b. Why would she do that? She’s sitting at number one."
The songstress continued: "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."
The outspoken star added: "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."
Earlier this month Lorde - whose real name is Ella Yelich-O'Connor - told MTV News US that she has "pretty strong morals and opinions" that she "can't help but express".
The young singer continued: "I mean, I don't think I say anything that isn't backed up. Most of the time I will stand by things that I've said."
Lorde's single Royals has spent the past three weeks at the top of the US Billboard chart. She will officially release the track here in the UK on October 20.
