Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez Verbally Attacked By 'Royals' Lorde; Did Joe Jonas Stand Up For Them?

By Staff Writer | October 05, 2013 08:11 PM EDT







Following, "Royals" artist Lorde's comments about Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez, Joe Jonas of The Jonas Brothers targeted the newcomer on Twitter.




"Hey @lordemusic you say call me Queen B but you shouldn't be attacking all the true Queen B-tches's #respect," tweeted Jonas.






Although he mentioned no names, it could be suggested the the "true Queen B-tches' he is referring to is Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift.




In a September interview, Lorde implied that Gomez's smash hit "Come and Get It" promoted women to be submissive in the relationship.




"I love pop music on a sonic level. But I’m a feminist and the theme of her song [Come & Get It] is, ‘When you’re ready come and get it from me.’ I’m sick of women being portrayed this way," said Lorde in the interview, according to Perez Hilton.




As for Swift, in the October 2013 issue of New Zealand's Metro, Lorde said the "22" singer was "too flawless and unattainable." The "Pure Heroine" artist alleged that Swift's perfect image sent the wrong message to her girl fans.




Later, Lorde claimed what she said was taken out of context.




"What i meant was: there’s a lot of importance placed on physical perfection in this industry, and i wish my favorite stars didn’t look perfect because i think fans (me included) have these feelings of worthlessness, like they’ll never be as pretty/talented/whatever, as a result of this intense photoshop culture and the endless strive for perfection," explained Lorde, according to Oh No They Didn't.
