“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% good, you’re a ‘hater’. even if you have perfectly reasonable grounds for that critique. people will say exactly what they think about a movie or a TV show, and that’s fine, but as soon as you say it about a record, you’re like some little zombie in a funny dungeon. I have pretty strong morals and opinions being in pop music, and I can’t help but express those, which I think people appreciate. I mean, I don’t think I say anything that isn’t backed up. Most of the time I will stand by things that I’ve said.“
Tbh anyone who denies that Lorde is extremely talented at this point is just in denial. Like, if you don’t like the sound of her music, that’s 100% okay. But an internationally famous 17 year old girl that’s also a Grammy award winner and the album curator for a movie as big as Mockingjay is pretty damn talented.
