Lorde Addresses Reports Of Taylor Swift Rift

(Radio.com) Lorde has taken to social media to shoot down rumors that she and Taylor Swift are at odds. "Wow, something of a frustrating thing to have to address online but here we go," she wrote.

"Taylor is a dear friend. I love her very much," she continued. "In the interview in question I had just been talking about Bowie and Patti Smith--those were the 'idols' I was referring to that I was saying I'm not friends with, not Taylor."

"I've always found people's perception of this 'squad' idea frustrating in the past; it was never some exclusive club or secret society, but a wide circle of people, some of whom I know and some who I've never met, like most wide groups of friends. Forgive me for the mild eyeroll I popped when it was brought up as if we're all blood members of a secret cult."

"Really s—— to wake up to headlines about whether or not you've jumped ship on someone you deeply respect and ride for. I want to say one more time that Taylor has been there for me in all my dark and light moments these past 5 years. All of them. I feel truly terrible that I would ever seem like I wasn't faithfully her person. I f—–up an interview question. Now go sip a beverage and head out on a walk." Check out Lorde's full post here.

Kesha Releases Essay About Her New Song And Personal Journey

(Radio.com) On the heels of her video release for the song "Praying," Kesha penned an essay for Lena Dunham's Lenny Letter describing the spiritual journey she's taken since her last album. That experience has included a protracted legal battle against Sony Music and producer Dr. Luke (who she accused of sexually assaulting her) and a quest to make music on her own terms.

"This song is about coming to feel empathy for someone else even if they hurt you or scare you," Kesha wrote. "It's a song about learning to be proud of the person you are even during low moments when you feel alone. It's also about hoping everyone, even someone who hurt you, can heal."

For Kesha, the key to healing was learning to let go of the things she can't change. "This song is about me finding peace in the fact that I can't control everything -- because trying to control everyone was killing me," she wrote. "It's about learning to let go and realize that the universe is in control of my fate, not me." Read more here.
