Lorde Calls Out Female Pop Singers
The more I read about Lorde, the more I love her. The singer called out her fellow musicians for being crap role models recently. (Read what she had to say under the cut.)
“I think a lot of women in this industry maybe aren’t doing so well for the girls,” she tells The Fader.
“I’ve read interviews where certain big female stars are like, ‘I’m not a feminist’. I’m like, that’s not what it’s about.”
She added: “She’s great, but I listened to that Lana Del Rey record and the whole time I was just thinking it’s so unhealthy for young girls to be listening to, you know: “I’m nothing without you.” This sort of shirt-tugging, desperate, don’t leave me stuff.
“That’s not a good thing for young girls, even young people, to hear.”
Lorde’s album Pure Heroine* is out Oct. 28th. Fingers crossed that it will give us a taste of the ’90s kick*ss girl power strength that music has been missing lately.
*Heroine with an “e”, as in a strong woman. Not heroin, the drug.
