New Zealand star Lorde has criticised US starlet Selena Gomez for the message in her single, 'Come And Get It'.
Currently one of the hottest properties in music, Lorde has recently scored huge success in the US with her single 'Royals'. She has now revealed her distaste for the submissive nature of Gomez's 2013 hit, 'Come And Get It'.
"I love pop music on a sonic level," says Lorde, as reported by US blogger Perez Hilton. "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."
Lorde previously singled out Lana Del Rey as another prime example of a female artist who was setting a bad example for impressionable, young female fans.
“I think a lot of women in this industry maybe aren’t doing so well for the girls,” she said in a recent interview with 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."
