Despite her short time in the spotlight, it seems Lorde is making enemies fast - and rapper Tyler, The Creator looks set to join the club after he posted an unflattering Instagram photo of the 17 year old singer and her boyfriend.

Odd Future member Tyler posted a recent paparazzi snap of Lorde and her 24 year old photographer boyfriend James Lowe on the beach, with the caption "Hhahahahahah". Lorde, real name Ella Yelich-O'Connor was quick to respond, asking the rapper via Twitter, "was this supposed to make me feel something?".

Tyler seemingly played down his actions, saying "NOT AT ALL. IT MADE ME LAUGH," in reply to the singer's question. The tweets have, of course, since been deleted, but check out a screenshot below. No chance of a collaboration in the future then guys?

It seems Lorde, who shot to fame this year with her world-conquering smash 'Royals' is getting a taste of her own medicine, having publicly dissed peers including Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez in interviews. The 17 year old was also last week forced to clarify comments she made earlier this year calling Drake, Nicki Minaj and Lana Del Rey "irrelevant." Lorde tweeted that she has "nothing but love" for the stars.

Below: the 10 best 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."
