Lorde On Lana Del Rey Music: ‘It’s So Unhealthy’

Published: Sunday 22nd Sep 2013 by David

Currently perched at #1 on iTunes USA, 16 year old Pop newbie Lorde is fast becoming one her genre’s more celebrated (and respected) contributors, scoring big on all fronts with her brand new single ‘Royals’.

Now, days before the September 27th release of her debut album ‘Pure Heroine’, the performer has shared her thoughts on ‘Teenage Wasteland’ belle Lana Del Rey, billing her music ‘unhealthy’.

More below…

In an interview given to Fader, Lorde shared:

“I think a lot of women in this industry maybe aren’t doing so well for the girls. I’ve read interviews where certain big female stars are like, “I’m not a feminist.” I’m like, That’s not what it’s about.”

“She’s great, but I listened to that Lana Del Rey record and the whole time I was just thinking it’s so unhealthy for young girls to be listening to, you know: “I’m nothing without you.” This sort of shirt-tugging, desperate, don’t leave me stuff. That’s not a good thing for young girls, even young people, to hear.”

“I don’t really have any girls songs [for the new record]. I should have. But I think the way in which I assert myself as not being about that stuff is by writing about it in a way that’s a bit less obvious and less cloying. There are a couple songs on the record about relationship-y stuff, but I make sure to write about it in a way that you don’t know if it’s a friend or a relationship, because that’s something that’s personal to me.”

    In a way I agree with her when she talks about “I’m nothing without you”.

    • Ciara is everything September 22, 2013

      F*** LANA AND ROSIE!!!

      • Rosie September 22, 2013

        Not you threatening me before I even wake up. The definition of “seething.”

  2. Common Sense September 22, 2013

    I can smell Rosie’s seething replies to this poor little girl already lol.

    • Cici slaaaays September 22, 2013

      Lol good can’t wait to drag that d***.

    • Rosie September 22, 2013

      Of course the Z-Squad are the first to run in this post. You guys stay more pressed about Lana than about I’m Out (of The Charts) being in the 500’s on iTunes in Cierror’s only market.

      • FAF September 22, 2013

        The way that gold plaque for body party is set up hun maybe if u spent more time patronizing your IRRELEVANT fave versus responding to a Z list squad (that u care so much about) she could be somewhere

        now keep typing paragraphs, UGLY 😆 😆 😆

      • Rosie September 22, 2013

        Not bragging about a not yet received Gold certification. LMAO. Local Party isn’t even close to gold and it won’t be for at least a year at this rate.
        Summertime Sadness is platinum, something Cierrot hasn’t achieved since the Bush administration.

  3. IM A FREE B*TCH September 22, 2013

    Lana is still bigger and better than she is

    • Goppit September 22, 2013

      Lana’s been around for years, Lorde is just breaking out. Shut up with your irrelevant comments please.

      • LORDE FAN September 22, 2013

        LMAO DRAG THAT B****.

      • mother monster September 22, 2013

        Lmao.

      • Shashank March 13, 2017

        Lana has also faced brutal public & media scrutiny because of b******* gossip mongering of hollywood media & bloggers. This caused deppresion & anxiety to her. Ultraviolence album was her answer for the haters. Lorde insulted her during that particular vulnerable time.

    • IM A FREE B*TCH September 22, 2013

      if my comment was irrelevant, u wouldnt have responded to it. Lana will continue to be bigger and better than this unknown b**** stay pressed and go home

      • mother monster September 22, 2013

        B**** Lana aint s*** but a fail.

      • IM A FREE B*TCH September 22, 2013

      • Stop the drama Start the music September 22, 2013

        B**** if u hate Gaga so much why do u have her song line in ur name? Sit the f*** down.

      • IM A FREE B*TCH September 23, 2013

        did i say hate gaga? hmmmm the truth hurts doesnt it?

    • Mel October 17, 2013

      While I love Lana and have both Paradise and Born to Die, I have to agree with Lorde. It doesn’t matter that Lana is bigger right now. I’ve heard “Royals” SO much more on the radio than “Summertime Sadness” and Lana is OBVIOUSLY amazing in both her writing capabilities and her vocals but if you take a good look at the lyrics you can easily see what Lorde is saying. Born To Die is all about her own personal experiences and turmoils. She’s not just writing these songs for shits and giggles. It’s her past and it’s raw, but she doesn’t want her fans to make the same mistakes, unfortunately some of her more impressionable fans do because she’s not saying NOT TO in her songs, interviews yeah maybe, but not in what most people are hearing.

      • que November 28, 2013

        i spent my teenage years with kurt cobain’s songs, which according to your logic should have made me take drugs, commit suicide, etc – didn’t happen though. lady gaga’s fans won’t walk around naked or wearing meat dresses, etc.

  4. Girl gone wild September 22, 2013

    I would chose her any day over sleeper del ray bish sounds like she drowning

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 22, 2013

      Like she’s drowning….lmao. I don’t care for either of these irrelevant h*** but Lana> whoever this chick is…

  5. cake like lady gaga September 22, 2013

    I agree with Lorde

    • caribbean native September 22, 2013

    • mother monster September 22, 2013

      Love you mama…,The little monsters will never support that trash Lana ever again…

      Lorde>Lana

  6. Asbeenish September 22, 2013

    Oh lorde yaas honey. Truth tea = spilt

  7. f*** off and die, c u n t September 22, 2013

    This b**** needs to learn quick to shut her mouth and keep her useless opinions to herself. She’s f****** 16, go play with your barbie dolls, s***. She has no legitimate relationship experience to even comprehend why it’s such a compelling topic for artists. When somebody dumps her ugly ass and breaks her heart, then she’ll understand.

    • LORDE FAN September 22, 2013

      YOUR OPINION IS S*** AND H** YOU WILL DEAL. 😉

      DADDY GAYGAY SUCKS AND SHE’S A HAS BEEN.

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 22, 2013

      Who plays with Barbies at 16? And ppl could say the same about ur useless opinions on a blog. At least she is doing something with her life she loves to do. What do u do besides troll and stay anonymous?

    • Mel October 17, 2013

      It’s actually funny you say that because Lana was out partying at 14. She was an alcoholic at 14, and got sent to a private boarding school like she says in “This is what makes us girls”. Lorde is simply being mature and not writing not-so-vague songs about exes (which was a remark at Taylor Swift, who really isn’t as mature as she likes to believe). Oh, and if you were as big a Lana fan as you seem to be you’d look up her f****** backstory. Real Lana fans, like the magnificent Lana herself, can accept some justified criticism and not call others derogatory terms.

      • Shashank March 13, 2017

        But this was not criticism. Lorde criticism against Lana’s lyrics was unjustified in National Anthem song because that track was a criticism against opulence higher class powerful people. Lorde as a songwriter was not able to detect that criticism against opulence. But her criticism regarding is justifiable for Without you song, admittedly.
        Lana, because of brutal media & public scrutiny, was having depression & anxiety. She also face problems in her personal life. Nobody in media industry was respecting her.
        To prove to herself she started recording her album ‘Ultraviolence’.
        And during period, lorde insulted lana as irrelevant.
        Meaning of irrelevance is that a particular artist’s work is wastage & have no any value at all.
        Its understandable that LDR will took it personally.
        Lorde herself should have thought about it before dissing anybody

  8. Juztoon September 22, 2013

    Before anyone goes “seething”, it should be noted that Lorde has said she is a fan of LDR and likes her music.

    Lorde sings music that is very relevant for young people her age and she is right that in this sense songs that have women needing men isnt a picture we should be painting to the young and impressionable. So I agree with her, though LDR is hardly the only one to do it but her example suited the topic.

    Kinda like when DC3 went from independent women to let me do everything for you because your my man on cater 2 u and coped a lot of flak for it. Though I do love that song and video /getting off topic now lol.

    • Shashank March 13, 2017

      She didn’t said she is a fan of Lana. The transcript of interview shows that she only apologized drake & nicki minaj but not lana del rey

  9. . : : h 2 o : : . September 22, 2013

    Who is Lorde ?

    • LORDE FAN September 22, 2013

      SOMEONE MORE FAMOUS AND RICH THAN YOU’LL EVER BE H**.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . September 22, 2013

        There are at least a billion people more famous and rich than me and you combined, so what sense does your comment make really ?

    • mother monster September 22, 2013

      Someone with a top 10 hit you know something Beyonce hasn’t had in over 4 years.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . September 22, 2013

        What does Beyonce have to do with this whole thread ?

        And she’s still one of a few artists who can still go platinum in the states and sell around 3 million worldwide even 16 years later, why does she need a top 10 single at this point ?

      • Stop the drama Start the music September 22, 2013

        Who needs hits when u have been an album seller for years? It’s also funny how her flops are still hits somehow just cuz of her name alone. She has that power.

  10. JARED (WHITE DUDE) September 22, 2013

    When will the majority of these sanctimonious singers/musicians learn that it is not “healthy” to openly downgrade a fellow artists’ work, especially when you are an up-and-comer?

    I wouldn’t class Lana’s “National Anthem, Born to Die, Blue Jeans, Carmen and/or Ride” as “unhealthy/I Can’t Live Without You”- type songs, nor has any critic for that matter so what exactly is this 17 year old talking about?

    Two of the Best-Selling female albums of the 21st Century are ones of which the prime lyrical topics were about the ‘Heartbreak & the Sullen State of Relationships’ – Adele’s “21” & Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black” – so why isn’t she commenting on their work? Clearly, they are universal issues that EVERYONE can easily relate to.

    Although Lorde’, to an extent, brought to the surface a very strong point, I would hardly call her musicality ‘ground-breaking’ so who is she to actually criticize?

    A “1990’s- influenced, Minimalist/Pop- oriented, Trip-Hop- based song” that is as commercial and mainstream as any other Top-40 song in 2013 and carries a message of which is smart, and savvy, but been done so many times in the past is barely innovative.

    1) Remain content with your success.

    2) Continue to create the “real” music that you claim you do.

    3) SHUT UP

    • Dev September 22, 2013

      I agree, in most part with your comment, but i dont think she has a point. Music is an outlet that is attracts people for various different reasons. If Lorde’s intention is not to make music that focuses of the pitfalls of relationships and the desires of love, to be loved and to need someone at anypoint in her life well hey! but for some they can relate to that need and desire and find an emotional attachment to it.
      I’m not sure how the full article panned out, but its funny how she didn’t target a bigger star Like Whitney, Mariah, Rihanna or Beyonce for example to save getting dragged back to Australia

      • ATM JAM September 22, 2013

        This long ass double spaced novel for what? young girls don’t listen to “adele'” or “Amy” lana is usually on their ipods to adding those two to this equation was pointless.

    • mother monster September 22, 2013

      B**** stfu and get a life.

  12. grownwoman September 22, 2013

    So she can not have an opinion? People on this site comment and put down artist everyday every second but when an artist gives an opinion, all hell breaks out. Lol funny u all are. On this topic one will say “she should not put down other artist..she is too young to know” next post the comments will read “that flop b****, H**+, she is trash… etc”
    This site and SOME of its followers are the Pot calling the Kettle BLACK

    • ATM JAM September 22, 2013

      THANK YOU!

    • Shashank March 13, 2017

      But the smart Lorde than apologized drake & nicki minaj but not LDR. That’s because LDR was hated by media pundits & people. While drake & Nicki minaj even if they faced some criticism were prominent in charts, album sales & media.

  13. JJFan1814 September 22, 2013

    Lana sold 5 million albums with no mainstream hit. Young & Beautiful was a top 20 U.S. Hit & Summertime Sadness was even bigger. Lorde sis you tried it! And I guarantee you will not sell that much once your EP &/or album drops!

    • ATM JAM September 22, 2013

      never once did she say she wasnt a fan of her music, she said some of her songs are unhealthy for younger girls to listen to. hence: Drug references, being overwhelmingly clingy, singing about lolita ( VERY controversial), referencing street walking. i agree with Lorde and the rest of you are sad and delusional.

  18. grownwoman September 22, 2013

    I agree w/ Lorde on the topic of YOUNG girls. I gave her EP a listen and she writes with respect and knowledge. I enjoy her and appreciate her concerns for young people and music today. She is the talent that music is all about. Music is another form of poetry and she is a poet *in my opinion
    Royals & Love Club are two songs I really like.

  19. Let’s Be Real September 22, 2013

    LORD! PLEASE SHUT LORDE UP! First ..I’ve never heard of her til now …so let’s be real. Love songs like Lana makes have been around forever. Lana’s approach is nothing short of genuine genius. 5mil+ sold with no MAJOR hit, . Not everybody wants to be hard and a feminist ALL THE TIME.I hate when women act like they cannot be vulnerable. I get that this is her opinion but really? Girl your video depressede..I know that ain’t healthy either.

Lana is the best female artist of the past 5 years, her music ir Art, of course some people find her boring but didn’t they think the same about Opera, this girl comes to me as a Lana wannabe, less beautiful, interesting and talented…

Royals peaked at 3 on the Hot 100 but yet so many ppl still dont know who the f*** she is. this unknown b**** wont even touch Lana’s numbers. Lana stays unbothered by this b****’s irrelevant comments

    • Ciara is everything September 22, 2013

  33. channel_ROMAN September 22, 2013

    I don’t know her or listen to her music so I will comment on behalf of LDR. Music is an outlet in which a person speaks on what they’re feeling or what they’re going through. An artist like LDR who makes real music shouldn’t be criticized like that. For one young girls are NOT the only ones who listen to Music so she shouldn’t have to dumb down her lyrics because of that.

    P.S Born To Die + Take Care + 4 is an unhealthy combination. I’ve experienced that one night. Ended up hitting up my ex on some next s***.

  34. Rosie September 22, 2013

    The fact that I was on you f***’ minds as early as 5 AM though. I already dragged her 8 million times this week for this interview (and looking at this post, the majority of TGJ agrees) I’ll leave you all with this:

      stfu u stank ass p**** b@tch

      • Rosie September 22, 2013

        Mad because your d*** hasn’t been cleaned in 5 days. Enjoy your A***.

    • Molly September 22, 2013

      Why it Lana so long to get a hit in America and it took this 16 year old one try and shes slaying your basic ass fav.

      • Rosie September 22, 2013

        Yet Lana is still slaying her worldwide, where it matters.
        Pure Heroine won’t even do Paradise’s first week, like your fave couldn’t with her biggest hit since 2009. Meanwhile neither of her last two singles are top 500. Bye.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . September 22, 2013

        She was busy selling 5 million copies worldwide of an album.

    • LORDE FAN September 22, 2013

      B**** ROYALS IS #1 ON US ITUNES SOMETHING THAT LAMA DEL GAY WILL NEVER SEE, SHE’S A FLOP.

      • Rosie September 22, 2013

        Yes b**** stay clinging to a few Anglo-Saxon counties because we all know the c*** will never be as GLOBAL as Lana.
        5 million sold worldwide. Borde will never.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . September 22, 2013

        But what about worldwide sis ?

      • LORDE FAN September 22, 2013

        lANA HAS NOT SOLD 5 MILLION WORLDWIDE, 4 MILLION IS MAXIMUM. SHE WAS AT 2.9 MILLION AT THE END OF 2012 SO THERE IS NOT WAY THAT SHE’S SOLD 2 MILLION THIS YEAR, 4 MILLION IS MORE ACCURATE AND DON’T BRING ME LABEL SAID THING BECAUSE THEY INFLATE SALES , AKA USE SHIPMENTS. LOETS NOT FORGET THAT LANA FLOPPED SO HARD WITH HER LIZZY ALBUM AND THAT SHE DIDN’T EVEN CHART, SO LORDE IS ALREADY DOING BETTER THAN LANA AT THIS POINT.

      • Rosie September 22, 2013

        Lana’s first album was indie, your point is invalid.
        And it doesn’t matter. Just know that Borde is local to English speaking countries, her album will not do 2 million worldwide, and that she sounds like a pressed white feminist (the only group of people still pressed about Lana in 2013).
        Kii @ Borde only smashing in the US & New Zealand.

      • LORDE FAN September 22, 2013

        THE LOVE CLUB EP OUTSOLD ALL OF LANA EPS COMBINED, AND IT WAS RELEASED ONLY IN AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND AND US. KIIIIIIIIII AND ROYALS IS RELEASED ONLY IN ENGLISH SPEAKING COUNTRIES (NOT IN UK YET) SO DEAL, LORDE IS DOING BETTER THAN LANA AT THIS POINT. AND STOP MAKING EXCUSES, IT WAS INDIE AND? IT STILL FLOPPED HARDER THAN ANYTHING LORDE HAS DONE SO FAR. LORDE IS STILL YOUNG AND SHE HAS GOOD CHANCES TO OVERTAKE LANA. NEVER SAY NEVER HONEY.

      • Rosie September 22, 2013

        An absolute mess. Local Club EP has yet to sell 500k worldwide. If it did then BTD sold 6 million. Stop with the inflation.
        As of right now Locals is less global than Video Games. Kii. Another major label faux-hipster act that will disappear next year. Bye.

    • mother monster September 22, 2013

      Artpop will outsell Born to fail tho!!

      • s** dreams September 22, 2013

        Agreeed.

      • Rosie September 22, 2013

        Not when Born This Gay (“the album of the decade!!!”) barely did so by less than a million copies. Mess.

      • s** dreams September 22, 2013

        It sold 8 million worldwide so you mean it outsold it by 3 mil

      • Rosie September 22, 2013

        Receipts? Interscope (Tranny’s label) says 6 million.

  35. Molly September 22, 2013

    Anyways im done dragging these simple h*** time to go out for brunch then to do a little shopping… see you f*** later!

    The arguing on this site is so tired…yawn.
    Don’t know who this chick is but she better pray she gets on Lana’s level someday. At least Lana is slowly getting a fanbase and getting her name out there. This chick gotta ways to go.

  38. JOHNVIDAL September 22, 2013

    I didn´t know about her till now… but that doesn´t make her point any less valid. She´s right. It´s just an opinion, she was asked probably, nothing wrong in what she said. Why the need to compare sales now? lol You people are really basic. And being honest I´ve liked Lana del Rey since day one when she released Born to Die album, but I´ve always noticed she is obsessed with the same topics and sooner or later she´ll have to reinvent herself or something cos girl, a whole album and an EP (which I loved like I said) are enough if all you want to talk about is old men and how you can´t live without them.

  39. Chris September 22, 2013

    shes so smart for her age but i love lana, to each is own

  40. JoJo September 22, 2013

    WTF you guys need to grow up, Lorde loves her some Lana but just said she didn’t like the message in one her songs, now you guys coming for her wut ? smh

  41. Athena September 30, 2013

    I respect Lorde’s opinion. Yes, Lana’s songs, some of them, are not setting healthy examples for her audience to follow. But music is a very personal thing for every artist. I mean, musicians write about their feelings, their personal experience, their most sincere and secret thoughts which are not always pretty. Lana has stated in interviews many times that her songs are very experience-based and very personal. Why change that and take away from that originality?

    Lorde can do something else and set a healthy example for girls to relate to if she feels that’s the thing she should pursue with HER music. But she cannot dictate the content of other people’s songs.

    It’s a good thing she’s not afraid to speak her mind, I just don’t think her point is valid.

  42. andahsen LOL September 30, 2013

    does it really matter sbout who is better? this is a matter between difference of opinion, guys. there’s no such thing as a “shitty singer” because everybody is unique in their own way. if you don’t like somebody’s opinions (or in this case, music somehow), it’s unnecessary to say loads of crap about them.

  43. I h8 H** n****** October 5, 2013

    Beyonce is an ugly n***** w**** and so is cici lorde is clearly trans only people that matter is lana britney Madonna katy and miley everybody else can stfu seriously

  44. MichyCrystal October 22, 2013

    Okay first of all you dont have to diss her like that okay she’s not ugly and you dont know if she’s a S***
    I’m 16 and I’m a huge fan of Lana Del Rey always will be, and yes she shouldn’t be going saying that Lana Del Rey is giving young girls the wrong message.Yes some of her songs is not unhealthy but she shouldn’t went down on her like that She’s 16 Lana(Elizabeth Grant) is 27 she’s been thru relationship she’s been in those situations and yes sadly was an alcoholic at 14 but she recovered herself and is now a very talented young woman. I don’t know why she could lash on Lana like that because she has never even been in what lana been thru from being an alcohol addict to now a sober talented beautiful young woman. Lorde goes on to say that she only sings about living in the hampton and driving bugatti’s and crap. The thing is since im fangirling over Lana Del Rey I haven’t really heard something like that in her songs. Lana isn’t ignorant as Lorde think she is, because as the years past and she got hit after hit like Lana she would singing the same s***. So her statement is irrelevant and kinda true. Every pop singer on the face of this earth will always start off saying this s*** but later down the line it would be a completely different person singing about living the hampton and driving bugatti’s she’s still young and her career has just started. So she shouldn’t be saying that Lana gives young girls a wrong message and its “Unhealthy”. Is whoever listen to her songs has to be some girl who dont know better will take her music and try to copy her ways. But the thing is i havent heard anything about Lana giving young girls the wrong message until now with Lorde. I havent heard about girls following Lana like how some other girls follow Nicki Minaj and her s*** with this Barbie mess. Lana Del rey Music is unique so as Lorde and I’m telling u im a fan of royals i find it very catchy and unique and powerful because her voice is amazing. but the thing is she shouldnt have gone off on lana like that . You are 16 she’s 27 an adult has been thru what you haven’t even been thru yet so as I said before your statement is Irrelevant. Because well I’m a 16 year old Fangirl of Lana Del Rey and i havent been getting the wrong message from her and still Healthy
    A fan of your song tho…… Lorde

  45. Sierra November 7, 2013

    Just for those that don’t know, a bunch of lyrics in Lana’s songs are from the classic book Lolita. Lolita is a intense book, and Lana is just gaining inspiration from the book. Please do some research before you go bashing another artist, thanks.

  46. Marisabel November 12, 2013

    Dont take Lana literal when it comes to her lyrics. Without you talks about been the center of the camera eye and having a contradictory relationship about it. Is not about a person. Pay attention to the lyrics and you will understand. The same happens with Video Games, now, in this one, the title IS literall. She likes Video Games, been watched and filmed, very Vertigo (Hitchcock heroine) It´s a critique of women tranforming themselves to be loved, sometimes all of us sometime in life can be related to. Lana is very honest in her feeling and very unique, something no other talked about.

  47. melanie December 9, 2013

    you are so true! lana de rey is a beautiful and talented artist. people say her music is “boring” but they don’t realize what the message is. lana talks about her past and how she felt. lorde is a complete “knockoff” lana del rey. lana is the true and talented artist.

    ride on lana.

  48. Nonyabusiness March 12, 2014

    People like Lana and a lorde create music for themselves. They do it to express themselves. It’s not Lana’s job to be a role model for these supposed young girls that listen to her music. Many of the talented and famous people sing about REAL things in life because life isn’t just rainbows and butterflies. I guess I’m just confused why Lorde is making a fuss over Lana’s non appropriate songs when her albumn is called pure heroine….

  49. Catherine June 26, 2014

    To me, Lorde is like a less impressive version of Lana Del Rey. I’m really sure that she mimics her, not with the subject matter of her songs but her lyrics remind me of Lana’s writing in essence. Lorde is like a self proclaimed “child friendly” version of Lana Del Rey. God she gets on my nerves.
    PS Lorde, I’m not a feminist.

  50. tatiana.linden July 11, 2014

    I’m pretty sure Lana is writing for adults, not young girls. Why would she cater to young girls? She is in her late twenties.

  51. Carlito July 16, 2014

    And that’s why she looks like a man in her regular photos.

    • John July 16, 2014

      And Lana looks hot like a real woman.
