So, when it came out that Lorde turned down an opportunity to open for Katy Perry on her Prism Tour, the media was quick to try and fabricate a feud between the two superstars, because drama! It turns out that's just not the case. In a recent interview, Lorde addressed why she declined Perry's offer, squashing all rumors of a potential rift.
"In the really early stages of an artist's career, it's important for them to establish themselves for themselves. I'm just basically really stubborn and I want to be really independent," she told an Australian radio station. "So, I want to be headlining my own shows instead of supporting someone else. Which I think is fair enough."
And, so do we. Especially consider Lorde's own tour is already sold out. (E! Online)
