    I completely agree with lorde! Today that's the only.type of songs we here: let's make out here, I'm a weak minded girl.come save me. Lorde has never made a track talking about how bad she wanna have sex.I'm glad to know she isn't a mindless pop star and has the guts to express her opinions.

    Thank goodness there is a woman (or girl I suppose) in the spotlight who finally has some sense at last: some sense of the responsibility of being a famous female artist and the devastating consequences on our children of famous women who are not feminists and who play along to the damaging traditional female/male stereotypes. She is what the world has been waiting for, she is a great role model for kids, long may her success continue :)

    It seems like Selena is the more mature and intellectual one, ironically, when much has been said of Lourdes maturity. Selena realizes Lourde is speaking from emotion, and will grow up once she experiences life more.

    Lorde listened to the Lana Del Rey record and the whole time she was just thinking it’s so unhealthy for young girls to listens. http://goo.gl/XM5uqm

    I have thought that from the
    moment I saw that video.The
    lyrics are blatantly sexist & the
    'Come hither'motions & looks
    just as bad.Yes,there are tons
    of exploitative videos out there
    & we know how some artists get
    ripped apart for that.Selena

    seems like a smart, classy ,young
    lady so it's too bad she made
    such a 'stereotypical vamp video'

    I think it was the people behind her, her publicists, manager, and producers. She has been told she isn't sexy enough. Those people can dictate your life. I think she is taking a break from singing, and concentrating on acting.

    It sounds like the 16 year old is pretty smart for her age. I like that she is stating her beliefs instead of just being happy to have a number 1 single like she some sort of corporate zombie.

    No, she isn't. If she was smart for her age, she would keep her mouth shut. Her rants smack of childish entitlement. We all know we thought we knew everything at 16. She is no different. Not everything is black and white. Selena is probably a lot more moral than Lourde claims herself to be. If she wants to talk aboug feminism, walk the talk, and get rid all that hideous make up she wears.

    Anybody on this earth has the right to express an opinion. Rank and seniority doesn't matter.

    Selena's song may be sexists, but Lorde's 'deeply rasist'. It sounds like a 16 year old who should think before she speaks. Dont talk trash about someone else when what you do or sing is basicly the same with who you are criticizing. Im a girl- and being femanist and being bold is the very same thing.

    A lot of feminists are very much in touch with their sexuality. Others aren't, and seriously downplay it. You can't paint a picture of feminism with one brush stroke. We are all different. I don't think Lourde has gotten to that intellectual point yet
