If you were hoping for a right royal bust-up between 17-year-old Lorde and self-styled “King and Queen of New York” Nicki Minaj, you’re going to be disappointed.
After accusations that she had badmouthed both Minaj and Canadian rapper Drake, the Royals singer took to Twitter to defend herself. “I have nothing but love and admiration for both nicki and drake (have said this x1000),” Lorde tweeted last night.
“Just because their songs aren't my reality (being 17 and from auckland) doesn't mean i don't admire their musicianship and careers!,” she stated in a follow-up tweet.
In a recent chat with Interview Magazine, the talented songstress was quoted as saying: “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.”
“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.’”
The New Zealand born singer-songwriter, whose first single went to number 1 in the UK charts last month, was also recently featured on the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
