Lorde is making it abundantly clear that she supports Kim Kardashian’s butt-baring Paper magazine cover. The Grammy winner took to her Tumblr page on Friday to let it be known that she thought the cover was “pure heaven” and to explain her previously misconstrued Twitter comment about the photo.
After Kardashian’s racy photo nearly broke the Internet on Tuesday, Lorde tweeted a link to the cover with the word “mom.” This led misguided blogger Perez Hilton to report that both Naya Rivera and Lorde disapproved of the reality TV star’s actions because she’s a mother. As Gossip Cop previously reported, Rivera dissed Kardashian’s racy image, with a comment she left of Kardashian’s Instagram post, saying, “I normally don’t. But… you’re someone’s mother.”
And while Lorde similarly wrote, “mom,” she was not taking a dig at Kardashian. On Friday, Lorde clarified her previous Twitter statement with a lengthy explanation on her Tumblr page.
Lorde wrote the following:
omg haha ok so. time to explain this. i retweeted kim’s amazing cover and wrote ‘MOM’, which among the youthz is a compliment; it basically jokingly means “adopt me/be my second mom/i think of you as a mother figure you are so epic” (obviously i love my own mama and she is the best tho) but straight after that i think someone else called out the cover saying kim has no right to look that sexy as she is a mother which is TOTAL trash – why should that stop her? if anything i think she gets even more beautiful and sexy all the time like a fineass wine, and of course has every right to showcase that – but i think our two comments got lumped in and also maybe reporters don’t understand my breed of humour/worship. i am the biggest fan of jean-paul goude and of grace jones, as you know, and there’s no way i could support one and not the other you know? it wouldn’t make any sense to worship rih in her swarovski crystal gown at the CFDAs, or grace naked on the cover of island life (as shot by goude!), and not kim. to summarize – kim’s cover was pure heaven. so so beautiful. i’m proud to say it’ll be on my wall.
ps. i messaged our mutual friend straight away and made sure kim understood, and she does and all is well.
so i hope that’s cleared up. next time i’ll go for a good old fashioned “SLAY” instead.
After reading her response, it’s safe to say Lorde is more than a fan of Kardashian’s sexy Paper cover.
