Lorde has blasted fellow musician Taylor Swift for her image, calling it too perfect to be healthy for young girls.

In an interview with Metro magazine, she said, "Taylor Swift is so flawless, and so unattainable, and I don’t think it’s breeding anything good in young girls. 'I'm never going to be like Taylor Swift, why can't I be as pretty as Lorde?' That’s f--king bulls--t."

Lorde later responded to a fan's question about her comments, writing on her Tumblr page, "i think i cocked that up a bit and what i said wasn’t put in context also. what i meant was: there’s a lot of importance placed on physical perfection in this industry, and i wish my favourite stars didn’t look perfect because i think fans (me included) have these feelings of worthlessness, like they’ll never be as pretty/talented/whatever, as a result of this intense photoshop culture and the endless strive for perfection.

"ts [Taylor Swift] was the first person i thought of, which i regret. she happens to be good looking, but i think she actually uses her other imperfections in an incredibly powerful and relatable way. taylor swift has a very unique vision, which i admire...

"ps. i am very very new to this whole thing. i will probably never be the kind of role model for my fans that ts is for hers. i admire her very much for this reason. basically, this is an apology for not thinking too hard before i speak. peace. [sic]"

Hopefully Swift takes the apology, because we're starting to tire of her break up/revenge songs.
