Lorde apologises over comments about Taylor Swift friendship

Reflection'I still don't know how I escaped fairly unscathed from the whole thing' Lorde also revealed during the 60 Minutes interview with regards to her instant stardom

Lorde is facing huge backlash following her comments about her friendship with Taylor Swift being like an "autoimmune disease".

In an interview with The Guardian, the 20-year-old singer addressed her friendship with the Bad Blood hitmaker, whom she met in 2013. Certain things you can't do.

However, it's pretty obvious that suffering from a disease and being friends with one of the world's biggest celebrities are two very different things, and Twitter users wasted no time pointing that out to her.

"I wonder how @SelenaGomez feels about this".

An Australian journalist named Stephanie Anderson had called her out on Twitter, "What an incredibly ignorant analogy to make".

Lorde responded to Anderson's tweets saying she didn't mention Swift's name - but apologised anyway. "I'm sorry", she typed on Tuesday.

There. That should settle that, right?

Witness says about 50 were standing on deck
Bell said initial reports indicated at least 20 had been injured, but declined to provide more specific numbers. Three helicopters, including KRMC's ALERT air ambulance, were used to transport the injured.

Of course, Lorde's fame has skyrocketed ever since she released the song "Royals" in 2013, but Swift is kind of in a fame stratosphere all her own. Gomez has previously opened up about her autoimmune disease lupus.

What Lorde meant to say was that being friends with one of the most famous people on earth has its limitations.

The comparison was taken by some as an insult to Selena Gomez, who suffers from lupus, an autoimmune disease.

The questionable quotes surfaced when the "Perfect Places" singer was chatting with The Guardian in an interview published Saturday, and talk turned to how she navigates high-profile friendships with fellow celebs like Swift.

Four years after her breakout debut at 16, Lorde's second album Melodrama finally emerged Friday.

Well said, Lorde. We'll bring some Claritin for our next hang with Swift.

Lorde's right - it was really insensitive.
