The 17-year-old "Royals" singer discusses Beyonce's feminism in her fifth album and how she handles questions about Miley Cyrus in interviews LordeLorde's unfiltered interviews have led to reports that she's dissed fellow musicians such as Selena Gomez and Nicki Minaj, but the New Zealand born singer has learned how to deflect questions about one controversial pop star: Miley Cyrus.

In an interview with Rookie, the 17-year-old says writers are constantly asking her about Miley's controversial antics. "I have never done media training," she explains. "I feel like I probably should have, because then I could've better identified some of that baiting in the beginning. Now when people are like, 'Tell me what you think about Miley!' I'll say, 'What do you think of Miley?' and they like flounder and say, 'Well, I think she's really talented...' and I'm like, there you go."

The self-proclaimed feminist also gives Beyonce props for her groundbreaking new self-released album, which featured 14 original music videos.

"I would cry if I had to make that much visual content for an album!" Lorde says. "Just on that level, it's phenomenal. But it also feels like the album I wanted to hear from Beyonce for such a long time, and I'm so happy that it has happened. I liked what you guys said about her not being afraid to let her feminism evolve, and you can hear that on this record, which I think is so important and such a hard thing to bare. It feels really personal."

We're glad Lorde's learned how to respond to interviewers who may be looking for negative headlines. She's very young and newly famous but it seems that she's learned a lot in the past year!
