SELENA GOMEZ opens up about her feud with LORDE, in an interview with Seventeen magazine’s upcoming issue.
Selena Gomez didn’t find it easy to make friends with Lorde, after the New Zealand-born “Team” singer became notorious in Hollywood for dissing famous artists and calling them “anti-feminist” (among many other things).
Fortunately for the newcomer, it doesn’t seem like Gomez is taking the slight by heart.
Gomez says in her cover story with Seventeen, which also features her on the cover of their upcoming issue
“I recently did an interview and they asked me who I thought was up-and-coming and making a difference. I said, ‘She doesn’t like me, but Lorde.’ I’m going to support her whether she likes me or not because I think she’s doing great things.”
The former Disney child star, who’s currently on a brief hiatus from music to spend some time for herself clarifies that she’s “never met” Lorde, but acknowledges her being “extremely talented.”
That said, Selena thinks the slight will eventually die down.
“Some day I will see her and we’ll be cool.”
We all know the Latina pop star is the friendly type, evidenced by her strong friendships with famous singer BFFs like Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift, whom she praises for they “support females and love to have that empowerment.” She admits:
“I love my girl friends more than I’ve loved any of my boyfriend because they have supported me, loved me, and always stood by my side. Some girls will drop you in five seconds for the right guy. That’s not how it’s supposed to be.“
She also credits Demi for teaching her not to be scared of saying what she wants, because “you’re never going to make everyone happy.” She adds:
“Just saying it out loud is the first step to taking away the fear. It took me a long time to be able to say what I wanted – even with my parents. I tried to beat around the bush, but I realized if I just said what I was thinking, I would feel so much better. It’s not easy, but there’s a way to do it.”
Now coming into 2014, Gomez is hoping for better things, especially when it comes to her career in music. While she “really started feeling powerful,” she aims to quit “doing things for other people” and stop being “very stale with my music” in the next few months.
Surprisingly, she admits it had a lot to do with her “really bad breakup” with Justin Bieber and her need to “pick up everything.”
“I was tired of feeling defeated. All this time, I was so pissed trying to figure out why I felt like such an underdog, and I finally realized I just wasn’t ready.”
Selena now declares:
“I’m glad it’s taken me this long to get where I am because now I’m ready for it.”
We’re ready for you too!
Are you excited for the new and improved Selena this year?
