Last night Danni Starr of The Kane Show Hot 99.5 met up with Selena Gomez backstage at the Patriot Center to kickoff the U.S. leg of her tour.

Selena weighed in on a controversial comment made by 16-year-old New Zealand indie pop artist Lorde regarding the theme of her song 'Come & Get It.'  The teen stated that she is a feminist and is "sick of women being portrayed that way."

Gomez responded, "There’s two different kinds of criticism. There’s the people that hide behind a computer and want to say endless amount of things but never say it to your face, and then obviously there are the vocal ones. I appreciate everybody’s opinion, especially because I’ve covered her music lots of times."

"I think she (Lorde) is super-talented and I think it’s awesome. But I think at the same time that feminism and that specific thing is very sensitive because in my opinion it’s not feminism if you’re tearing down another artist. So that’s the only thing that I feel but you know, she’s young, she’s got so much talent, she’s gonna take over, she gets it, so I don’t take it to heart."

In the past Selena has covered Lorde's song 'Royals.'   The singer has switched it up and is now covering the Katy Perry hit 'Roar.'
