Lorde defends Iggy Azalea against ‘spineless’ music critics

Lorde is never one to shy away from confrontation so when she saw her friend Iggy Azalea being slammed by music critics, she didn’t take it lying down.

The magazine in question, Complex, featured Iggy on their cover a few months ago but that didn’t stop them from printing a scathing review of her new album, ‘The New Classic.’

Lorde took to Tumblr and wrote: “bugs me how publications like complex will profile interesting artists in order to sell copies/get clicks and then shit on their records? it happens to be all the time – pitchfork and that ilk being like ‘can we interview you?’ after totally taking the piss out of me in a review. have a stance on an artist and stick to it. don’t act like you respect them then throw them under the bus.”

Iggy showed her appreciation for Lorde’s response and wrote on her Twitter account: “I agree @lordemusic media LOVE to flop about, But when you’re completely spineless Im sure its hard to stick to even ur own opinion #GoGirl.”

Yikes, we wouldn’t want to mess with these two strong ladies!
