Lorde: I Didn't Mean Drake and Nicki Minaj Were Irrelevant To Everyone

(AllHipHop News) Oh, Lorde, Lorde, Lorde. Last week (November 24th), 16 year old pop singer Lorde called Nicki Minaj and Drake’s music “irrelevant” and then backtracked on her comments.

Taking to her personal Twitter, the singer blames Complex for misconstruing her word. She specified that although she said “How are we listening to this,” her comments were about her own experience:

Ironically, in October, Lorde talked to MTV about the scrutiny people face over their opinions about celebrities:

I think there’s a funny culture in music that’s only happened over the last 15 years, that if you have an opinion about something in music that isn’t 100-percent good, you’re a ‘hater,’ even if you have perfectly reasonable grounds for that critique. People will say exactly what they think about a movie or a TV show, and that’s fine, but as soon as you say it about a record, you’re like some little zombie in a funny dungeon.
