Lorde has apologized in the wake of contrasting fellowship with Taylor Swift with a companion with an immune system infection in a meeting with the Guardian throughout the end of the week. Read the quote and you’ll perceive how she wound up soaking in this figurative sand trap:
On the difficulty of maintaining a friendship with someone as famous as Taylor Swift: “It’s like having a friend with very specific allergies. There are certain places you can’t go together. Certain things you can’t do. There are these different sets of considerations within the friendship. It’s like having a friend with an autoimmune disease.”
On Twitter, Lorde reacted to a fan who asked how somebody with immune system ailment—like Swift’s other companion Selena Gomez, who has lupus—should feel about the similarity.
