The "Royals" crooner sounded off on Complex this time on her Tumblr page Sunday, criticizing the mag for giving Iggy Azalea's new album a negative review after they featured her on their cover.
"Bugs me how publications like complex will profile interesting artists in order to sell copies/get clicks and then s--t on their records?" Lorde wrote. "It happens to me 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 soon chimed in, tweeting, "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." She later wrote, "The media will beg for free tickets to your show just so they can write about how much they hate it etc etc, I wish you could all see it."
Complex soon shot back with a post of their own, writing among other things, "Lorde-as well as Iggy-seem to confuse press as 'respect' and criticism as being thrown 'under the bus.' Truth is, not every media interaction will be mutually beneficial. Sure, giving Iggy a cover helped us "sell copies/get clicks" but it also helped establish Iggy as a star."
