So we've all seen the Kim Kardashian photos from this week. Unless you've been living in some sort of alternate universe, of course.
As soon as Kim posted the picture on Twitter, Lorde retweeted it, simply commenting "mom".
But then actress Naya Rivera slammed Kardashian for posing naked when she's a mother. So everyone of course thought Lorde was also hating on her for the same reasons.
Not so! Lorde wanted to clear it all up on Friday morning, so posted a blog on her Tumblr page.
Because she kept on getting queries like this, arguing that she was being a hypocrite.
Lorde owned it by explaning that "mom" is actually teen slang for a compliment, ie "adopt me/be my second mom" and even labelled the Paper magazine cover "amazing."
The singer wrote:
Omg haha ok so. time to explain this. i retweeted kim's amazing cover and wrote 'MOM', which among the youthz is a compliment; it basically jokingly means "adopt me/be my second mom/i think of you as a mother figure you are so epic" (obviously i love my own mama and she is the best tho) but straight after that i think someone else called out the cover saying kim has no right to look that sexy as she is a mother which is TOTAL trash - why should that stop her?
She then went on to defend Kim and reveal she reached out to her to make sure there was no bad blood.
If anything i think she gets even more beautiful and sexy all the time like a fineass wine, and of course has every right to showcase that - but i think our two comments got lumped in and also maybe reporters don't understand my breed of humour/worship. i am the biggest fan of jean-paul goude and of grace jones, as you know, and there's no way i could support one and not the other you know? it wouldn't make any sense to worship rih in her swarovski crystal gown at the CFDAs, or grace naked on the cover of island life (as shot by goude!), and not kim.
To summarize - kim's cover was pure heaven. so so beautiful. i'm proud to say it'll be on my wall.
