Lorde Compares Her Friendship With T-Swift To Having "Very Specific Allergies"

Reflection'I still don't know how I escaped fairly unscathed from the whole thing' Lorde also revealed during the 60 Minutes interview with regards to her instant stardom

When dishing on her friendship with Swift, Lorde casually compared hanging with the A-lister to someone "with an autoimmune disease".

The 20-year-old has been fast-friends with Taylor for a couple of years now, and has regularly posted about their mutual love on her social media channels (her personal accounts, alas, not her onion ring reviewing ones). "Certain things you can't do", she told journalist Tom Lamont.

Elaborating, Lorde added: 'There are these different sets of considerations within the friendship. So when #Lorde seemingly threw a shade at her longtime friend, the Swifties (Taylor's fans) made sure that the "Royals" singer know that they are absolutely not happy with it.

After a fan mentioned how fellow Swift friend Selena Gomez might (who suffers from lupus) feel about the disease comment, Lorde apologized on Twitter, writing, "didn't mention taylor, but regardless, i f-- up & that was really insensitive. i'm sorry".

And she responded by saying it was the same as being in a friendship with someone suffering from an autoimmune disease. The controversy arrived shortly after Lorde admitted she's "not a good famous person".

More Cosby deposition read into court record
Cosby said he chose to pursue a friendship with Constand, which he hoped would grow to something more intimate. The New York Timesreported on Friday, however, that a spokesperson said Cosby may, in fact, testify.

Between Lena Dunham, Taylor Swift, Tavi Gevinson, Karlie Kloss, and the other Hollywood heavy weights in the singer's inner circle, Lorde stays social-but, honestly, how do any of them find time?! My approach is, "Deal with it",' she said. "I am a writer, that is what I am good at".

"I think I would have been annoyed by me", she replied.

'I hate it and every time it happens to me, I feel unsafe.

The New Zealand native's interview comes on the heels of the success of her second studio album, Melodrama.
