Lorde Says She Doesn’t Hang Out With Taylor Swift ‘At All’
During a chat with Sunrise this morning (July 7), Lorde — who otherwise relished the success of her newest LP Melodrama — was asked if it felt strange to suddenly be hanging out with former idols like Swift and Beyonce. And her answer caught viewers a little off-guard.
“The second you think too hard about it, you just start to go insane,” she responded. “So it’s best to just be like, ‘We’re in wonderland, and that’s just what happens around here.’ Like, also, I don’t hang out with these people at all.”
And when the show’s host interjected to ask the requisite: WAIT A SEC, What about Taylor’s Squad? Lorde said:
“You know, you make friends in different places, but I think for the most part I’m not, like, calling my idols for advice necessarily.”
In June, Lorde told The Guardian her friendship with Swift was tantamount to sickness — a comment for which she ultimately apologized.
“It’s like having a friend with very specific allergies,” she said. “There are certain places you can’t go together. Certain things you can’t do. There are these different sets of considerations within the friendship. It’s like having a friend with an autoimmune disease.”
