Lorde is not backing down.
The 16-year old, who has faced heat herself for lyrics some have dubbed "deeply racist," recently came out swinging about Selena Gomez.
Referring to her fellow young artist's hit "Come & Get It," Lorde said to E! News of Selena's message:
"I'm a feminist and the theme of her song is, ‘'When you're ready, come and get it from me. "I'm sick of women being portrayed this way."
In response to this diss, Cher Lloyd came to Selena's defense, wondering why Lorde had "to go do that" and telling J-14:
"What a knob. Why would she do that? She's sitting at number one... I think she's going to eat her words... and I think for someone who's gaining so much success so early, she should be considering herself lucky."
