In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine the Royals hitmaker, a self-confessed feminist, revealed she was made "sick" by the way Gomez portrays women in her track "Come & Get It."
The former child star has now responded to the remarks during an interview on radio station Hot 99.5, in which she questions Lorde's take on feminism.
She says, "I appreciate everybody's opinion, especially because I've covered Lorde's music lots of times. I think she is super talented and I think it's awesome ... But in my opinion it's not feminism if you're tearing down another artist."
