Lana Del Rey Vs. Lorde: Which Feuding Singer Should Win A Grammy? [VOTE]

Lana Del Rey vs. Lorde was one of the quieter celebrity feuds of 2013, but it may be about to reignite. After Lorde commented negatively about Del Rey in two separate interviews, the singers will compete for the Best Pop Vocal Album at the Grammys.

Del Rey’s “Paradise” and Lorde’s “Pure Heroine” are both up for the award, as are Bruno Mars’ “Unorthodox Jukebox,” Justin Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience – The Complete Experience” and Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.” However, Lorde’s comments about Del Rey – as well as reviewers who compare the two – add an interesting angle to the competition.

It all began in August, when Lorde said that Lana Del Rey’s music was “unhealthy for young girls” in an interview with Fader.

“I think a lot of women in this industry maybe aren’t doing so well for the girls,” Lorde said. “I’ve read interviews where certain big female stars are like, ‘I’m not a feminist.’ I’m like, That’s not what it’s about. She’s great, but I listened to that Lana Del Rey record and the whole time I was just thinking it’s so unhealthy for young girls to be listening to, you know: ‘I’m nothing without you.’ This sort of shirt-tugging, desperate, don’t leave me stuff. That’s not a good thing for young girls, even young people, to hear.”

Then, in November, Lorde mentioned Del Rey again, this time in Interview.

“Around the middle of last year I started listening to a lot of rap, like Nicki Minaj and Drake, as well as pop singers like Lana Del Rey. They all sing about such opulence, stuff that just didn't relate to me—or anyone that I knew. I began thinking, ‘How are we listening to this? It's completely irrelevant,’” she said.

Lorde later tweeted a message clarifying that she has “nothing but love and admiration for both nicki and drake” but did not mention Del Rey.

Music reviewers often compare the two singers. Spin wrote that Lorde’s hit “Royals” “sounds unfinished” compared to Del Rey’s sound; NME wrote that Del Rey followed her sudden hit and it-girl status with “a solid album” while Lorde doesn’t “deliver the goods”; the Guardian wrote that “Royals” “packs more finger-clicking disenchantment into three minutes than Lana Del Rey managed in an entire album.”
