Almost everyone tweeted their reaction to Kim Kardashian’s bootylicious Paper magazine cover which dropped on Wednesday (Nov. 12), but once you’re a celebrity, your comments are analyzed very closely. This is the case for Lorde, who tweeted “Mom” under Kim K’s post, leaving many spectators to think she was siding with Naya Rivera’s parenting comments on the glossy image.

The misunderstanding prompted the “Team” singer to take to her Tumblr account to clear the air on her statement, which you can read below: omg haha ok so. time to explain this. i retweeted kim’s amazing cover and wrote ‘MOM’, which among the youthz is a compliment; it basically jokingly means “adopt me/be my second mom/i think of you as a mother figure you are so epic” (obviously i love my own mama and she is the best tho) but straight after that i think someone else called out the cover saying kim has no right to look that sexy as she is a mother which is TOTAL trash – why should that stop her? if anything i think she gets even more beautiful and sexy all the time like a fineass wine, and of course has every right to showcase that – but i think our two comments got lumped in and also maybe reporters don’t understand my breed of humour/worship. i am the biggest fan of jean-paul goude and of grace jones, as you know, and there’s no way i could support one and not the other you know? it wouldn’t make any sense to worship rih in her swarovski crystal gown at the CFDAs, or grace naked on the cover of island life (as shot by goude!), and not kim. to summarize – kim’s cover was pure heaven. so so beautiful. i’m proud to say it’ll be on my wall. ps. i messaged our mutual friend straight away and made sure kim understood, and she does and all is well. so i hope that’s cleared up. next time i’ll go for a good old fashioned “SLAY” instead. x Nothing to see here folks after that lengthy explanation, which was posted a few days after the reality star broke the Internet.
