Taylor Swift sports sweats as she arrives at the dance studio for a class on Tuesday morning (October 1) in Studio City, Calif.
“I think I cocked that up a bit and what I said wasn’t put in context also,” Lorde explained on her Tumblr page. “What I meant was: there’s a lot of importance placed on physical perfection in this industry, and I wish my favourite stars didn’t look perfect because I think fans (me included) have these feelings of worthlessness, like they’ll never be as pretty/talented/whatever, as a result of this intense photoshop culture and the endless strive for perfection.”

“TS was the first person I thought of, which I regret. she happens to be good looking, but I think she actually uses her other imperfections in an incredibly powerful and relatable way. Taylor Swift has a very unique vision, which I admire. I think somewhere along the line also there was a misquote where people got the impression I thought writing about love was shameful. I don’t! I just haven’t found a way of doing it which is powerful and innovative, which is why I don’t.
ps. I am very very new to this whole thing. i will probably never be the kind of role model for my fans that TS is for hers. I admire her very much for this reason. basically, this is an apology for not thinking too hard before i speak. peace.”
