Talented - Yes; extremely so - No ... But in any case, why is it an issue at all? It isn't either Lorde or Katy, it's either Lorde or Katy or Gaga or Pink, in this case. Katy has won far over a hundred of all sorts of awards in her short career. The real problem is that her KatyCats plaster twitter with hate texts about Lorde and make Katy's fan base appear like a huge bunch of mentally seriously challenged retards. It's often their fans who do the only real damage to the artists, and in Katy's case they do just that again and again. KatyCats can be cute at times, but ever so often annoying as an ant heap up one's ass.
KATY PATRA WAS BRIGHTER THAN ALL OF THE NORTHERN LIGHTS TONIGHT!! YOU KILLED IT KATY!! She's certainly brighter than Lorde.
Oh well. Lorde's 15 minutes of fame is almost over anyway.
Stop hating. Lorde is extremely talented.
Well I suppose how talented you think she is certainly up to you, In my case I think she's extremely talented and Pure Heroine is a really impressive album.
Your other point though, I totally agree with. You don't have to pick one, I love Lorde, but I happen to have an obsession with Katy lol. It truly irks me when fans of one artist attack another artist because they are being celebrated. Do you think, especially with Katy, that they would want their fanbase attacking the artist? It's such a silly, childish thing to do.
