During her years as a successful musician, Lorde has attracted attention for being known for "dissing" other artists.

Taylor Swift

"Taylor Swift is so flawless, and so unattainable, and I don't think it's breeding anything good in young girls. 'I' never gonna be like Taylor Swift' 'why can't I be as pretty as Lorde?' That's fuc--ng bullshit.”
— Lorde about Taylor Swift in an interview

In an interview with Metro magazine Lorde spoke about her feminism, saying “Absolutely. Wholeheartedly, I think women who say, ‘No, I’m not a feminist — I love men,’ I think that is just… You don’t know what it means. You think it means that, ‘I don’t shave under my arms, I burn my bras. F--k men!’ How could you be so uneducated, and so unwilling to learn about something which is so important to you?” Next, she commented on Taylor Swift saying QUOTE "Taylor Swift is so flawless, and so unattainable, and I don’t think it’s breeding anything good in young girls. ‘I’m never going to be like Taylor Swift, why can’t I be as pretty as Lorde?’ That’s f---ing bulls--t." Later, it seemed they had forgiven each other as Lorde and Tyalor Swift have been seen numerous, i.e shopping, at a beach, celebrating Lorde's 20th birthday etc.

Justin Bieber

"I really appreciate that people think that I'm doing something good for the 'kids.' The 'young people.' I feel like the influences that are there in the industry for people my age, like Justin Bieber or whatever, are just maybe not a very real depiction of what it's like to be a young person."

It is to this day unknown if they have made up.

Selena Gomez

"I love pop music on a sonic level. But I'm a feminist and the theme of [Selena's] song [Come & Get It] is, 'When you're ready, come and get it from me.' I’m sick of women being portrayed this way."
— Lorde about Selena Gomez in an interview

In response to Selena Gomez's song "Come & Get It", Lorde dissed her saying "the theme of [Selena's] song [Come & Get It] is, 'When you're ready, come and get it from me.' I’m sick of women being portrayed this way." Later, Selena Gomez clapped backed in a very public way saying that "That’s not feminism. [Lorde is] not supporting other women. That’s my honest opinion, that’s what I would say to her if I saw her. I actually covered her song in all of my shows that I've done so far. I’m not sure if I’m going to continue that."

One Direction

""One Direction are pretty overrated and their music isn't really good. I find it odd they're famous."

Lana Del Rey

"I listened to that Lana Del Rey record and the whole time I was just thinking it's so unhealthy for young girls to be listening to, you know: 'I'm nothing without you.' This sort of shirt-tugging, desperate, 'don't leave me' stuff. That's not a good thing for young girls, even young people, to hear."

She later dissed Del Rey again, saying "I started listening to a lot of rap, like Nicki Minaj and Drake, as well as pop singers like Lana Del Rey. They all sing about such opulence, stuff that just didn't relate to me -- or anyone that I knew. I began thinking, 'How are we listening to this? It's completely irrelevant."

Nicki Minaj and Drake

As seen above, Lorde dissed Nicki Minaj, Drake and Lana Del Rey saying "Around the middle of last year, I started listening to a lot of rap, like Nicki Minaj and Drake, as well as pop singers like Lana Del Rey.

"No. F*** no. He's so gross."
