David Guetta has reacted to comments regarding Lorde's recent outburst in which she called the producer and DJ "gross."

Lorde has proven she's not afraid of speaking her opinion in regards to other artists, particularly those with strong pop careers. One of her latest victims is the renowned dance DJ, David Guetta. When asked if she would work with him, her response was "Fuck no! He's gross!". 

But it would seem that the DJ never actually asked her to collaborate in the first place. Speaking to HuffingtonPost Entertainment, Guetta responded saying, "I didn't ask her. I think my record company did, and, I mean, I don't really have any comment."

Despite her criticisms of nearly everybody in pop, Lorde isn't doing too badly for herself. Her debut single 'Royals' went straight to No.1 in a number of countries across the World, including the US and UK and she's signed a $2.5million dollar publishing deal on her 17th Birthday. 

Below: The 10 most  brilliant things Lorde has said in 2013

  • When asked if she wants to work with David Guetta: "No. Fuck no. He's so gross."

  • "I think women who say, 'No, I'm not a feminist - I love men,' I think that is just...You don't know what it means. You think it means that, 'I don't shave under my arms, I burn my bras. Fuck men!' How could you be so uneducated, and so unwilling to learn about something which is so important to you?"

  • "Taylor Swift is so flawless, and so unattainable, and I don't think it's breeding anything good in young girls."

  • "Everyone is so obsessed with how everything looks, how the party will look through a lens the next day. We all have Tumblr and we all have Instagram and everything. People care so much about it because, now, any random can be famous on the internet if their world looks good on Tumblr."

  • "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."

  • On ex-Disney stars: "The difference between those kids and me is that I grew up completely normally and went to parties and had that experience. I am way less inclined to be like, ‘Look! I’m f**king mental!'"

  • "I'm a feminist so certain things about music I find frustrating. I think pop is scarily powerful. There are a lot of shock tactics these days: people trying to outdo each other, which will probably culminate in two people f**king onstage at the Grammys."

  • "I've always really liked Kanye and I met him on Jools Holland. He was wearing a grill on his lower teeth and I had this barely suppressed desire to rub the grill. I didn't rub the grill."

  • "I think there's a funny culture in music that's only happened over the last 15 years, that if you have an opinion about something in music that isn't 100-percent good, you're a 'hater,' even if you have perfectly reasonable grounds for that critique."

  • "I love rap music because it just makes me feel way cooler than I really am."
