Last week,Diplo made comments about Taylor Swift's [lack of a] booty
and Lorde fired back, pointing attention instead towards his "Tiny Penis." Apparently, Lorde and Diplo are really tight, and she was simply trying to be a good friend to both Taylor and Diplo. In a recent interview with Fader, the songstress explained; "...part of having a friendship with someone like that is not letting them say stupid shit. Taylor's my friend as well, and I'm a girl, and if I see some weird body-shaming on my feed I'm going to be like, 'Hey man We do still love each other, hopefully."
Okay, got it. But is discouraging body shaming through body shaming really the soundest way to get your point across, Lorde? Even if your
comment is satirical and/or self-aware, we all know that the internet is pretty much the best place for things to be distorted or misinterpreted. Regarding her comments, and the apparent misappropriation of them, Lorde further explained, "I think often I say things and realize that Americans hear what I say differently to how I hear it."
Yes, we silly Americans truly aren't sophisticated enough for penis humor.
Anyways, despite the drama, looks like Diplo and Taylor and Lorde can all still be friends, no matter who has got a small what. And that's teamwork, everybody.
