Why Can't Anyone Just Let Lorde Be Great?

So is everyone else getting just so tired of everyone having problems with Lorde and her refreshing quotes and her lovely music? Everyone where you turn, it's like someone is letting loose those negative Lorde feelings, and that's just so sad. This time, it's Iggy Azalea, she of the magnificent behind, who felt the need to reveal her anti-Lorde tendencies, particularly concerning Lorde's performance at Nivana's induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame:

"Nothing against her, but I think when you're doing a tribute to someone that's dead, generally it should be the person's peer. Lorde is not Kurt Cobain's peer. No matter if she killed the performance or not, I just don't think it's appropriate."

Well, OK, but no. I mean, that's probably a valid opinion and all, but no. Of course Lorde isn't Kurt Cobain's peer, but obviously the remaining members of Nirvana were comfortable with Lorde performing, seeing as how they did play with her and all. Maybe if it was Dave Grohl coming out and saying that Lorde shouldn't have done this, maybe that might hold some weight, but since Dave was too busy playing music while Lorde was singing, this one's probably all right. You can step down now from defending the sanctity of all music, Iggy. Let's consider this case solved.

Iggy knows how to get free publicity, even if it make her look like a complete douche.

The Lorde version was awful. She killed it all right. Kurt Cobain wasn't rolling over in his grave he was having seizures.

That's interesting Emily. Just last week you were ripping into her about a quote she said. A quote you completely misunderstood... smh

So because you don't agree with Iggy's opinion she's wrong?
Weren't you bashing Lorde yourself a week ago?
