They have a mutual bestie in Taylor Swift, but that doesn’t mean Selena Gomez and Lorde are hugging it out just yet! The ladies, who publicly feuded last year, sat next to each other at Sunday’s American Music Awards…and couldn’t have looked more awkward if they tried.
The duo’s seating location was likely due to its proximity to the “Blank Space” singer, who was seated between BFFs Selena and Karlie Kloss, with Lorde on the “Slow Down” singer’s other side. While posing for photos, Justin Bieber’s on-again, off-again love, crossing her arms and forcing a smile, looked uncomfortable next to the “Yellow Flicker Beat” crooner.
Later, while Taylor was being awarded the first ever Dick Clark Award for Excellence, Lorde gave a very telling look while Selena admiringly hugged the honoree.
Things got sour between the young singers when Lorde said of Selena’s song “Come and Get It,”
“I’m a feminist and the theme of her song is ‘When you’re ready, come and get it from me.’ I’m sick of women being portrayed this way.” The now-22-year-old responded by publicly firing back, “That’s not feminism. She is not supporting other women. That’s my honest opinion, that’s what I would say if I saw her.”
Of course, we have to wonder…did Selena stand by that statement during their meet-up last night?!
