Asked about Gomez in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the “Royals” singer said, “I love pop music on a sonic level. But I’m a feminist and the theme of her song ['Come & Get It'] is, ‘When you’re ready come and get it from me.’ I’m sick of women being portrayed this way.”
Gomez hit back at Lorde on Hot 99.5′s “The Kane Show,” sharing, “I appreciate everybody’s opinion, especially because I’ve covered [Lorde's] music lots of times. I think she is super talented and I think it’s awesome.”
The Spring Breakers actress added, “But… in my opinion it’s not feminism if you’re tearing down another artist.”
Gomez continued, “You know, she’s young, she’s got so much talent… so I don’t take it to heart.”
