Lorde Says Being Friends With Taylor Is Like Being Friends With Someone Who Has An Autoimmune Disease

Oh LordeT.

Lorde is in full swing promoting her sophomore album Melodrama, which means she's subsequently in full swing promoting her friendship with pop-culture protagonist/antagonist Taylor Swift.

Lorde sat down with The Guardian to discuss her new music, which led her to discuss her friendship with Swift, which led Lorde to compare her friendship with Swift to someone with an autoimmune disease...........................................................?????????:

“It’s like having a friend with very specific allergies. 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.”

Sooo, lemme get this straight. Lorde thinks having a friend as famous as Taylor is like having a friend with lupus? Or multiple sclerosis? Or type 1 diabetes? GOT IT! 👍

I'm getting out here.


Lorde apologized for her comments after a fan brought up Taylor's friend Selena Gomez (who was diagnosed with Lupus back in 2013) on Twitter:

@stefinitely85 didn't mention taylor, but regardless, i fucked up & that was really insensitive. i'm sorry 🌹
