Lorde

New Zealand singer Lorde hates a lot of things and reggae music is one of them.

It’s very rare to come across a singer on the planet that don’t like or listen to the cool vibration or reggae music.

DETAILS: Singer Lorde Says Nicki Minaj And Drake Are Irrelevant Rappers

The outspoken 17-year-old pop singer echoed the sentiments in her recent video on Vevo “World According to Lorde.”

“I hate reggae,” Lorde said. “Reggae makes me feel like I am late for something.”

In said video, Lorde also express her love for Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar.

Members of the reggae community have since been weighing in on her dislike for the genre, most of who says she is entitle to her own opinion.

    • Nia Toller

      Since when it racist to dislike a genre of music or anything from a certain culture for that matter? I don’t like nachos, am I a rasict now? No. I also don’t like reggae, so what. No one has to like anything.

  • young hova

    nobody gives a sh– what she like as a matter of fact i wont listen her stupid as sh– anyway reggae will always be better than what she does

  • Stephen Higgins

    It is hard to believe that a musician do not like reggae music because music in general is mystical – However I have no problem with you not liking reggae music – I like music in general and I still like some of your music

    • marcus adams

      How? At least raggae music makes sense. Her music on the other hand has no meaning at all in my opinion.

      • Guest

        Exactly.

      • Nia Toller

        It does have meaning, to a certain group. As she grows her opinion of Reggae may change but right now she doesn’t like it you’re immature if you find it necessary for someone else to stop liking her music because she doesn’t like a specific genre. Also its probably the music that she dislikes, not the lyrical content. Listening to the type of music she produces its not surprising. My advice to you: grow up. Also work on your comprehension skills. Her music does make sense, it may not mean anything to you, but it makes sense.

      • RES IPSA LOQUITUR

        I see who’s immature. Your statement is totally inaccurate and obsolete. In other words…. moot. Find someone your age to comment with. You’re out of your league with me.

  • m henry

    • Tweley

      17 looking like that 0_0.. if she was more humble, I’d say it would make up for retarded comments.

  • Stephen Gill

  • JudgmentStar

    reggae is royalty that why u could never be royal bit– hahahha

    • JholiGold

      hahaha… i like that..

  • Just a Man

    Come on people, if you listen to the entire interview, she did say she was “LAME”. Typically, LAME people hate reggae.

    • Stephen Gill

      Reggae reminds me of rap for some reason, not too fond of rap, rap is too aggressive, reggae too lame?

  • Realest

    I personally think that all are entitled to their opinion, But saying that she hates reggae music was so ignorant to me. Sometimes people says stupid things then it turn around and bite them… Either way she liking it or not wont make a difference in the world. IREP ALL GENRE OF MUSIC!!!!!, It may not be my favourite but that doesn’t mean I hate it.

    • lordefanjoe

      any party playing music seems to get around to reggea late with a few sitting around smoking dope her remark was a joke on kiwi culture nothing more.

  • Weed head

    Tis dog sh-te look old be4 she young reggae nuh like her either

  • Dontchaknow

    She doesn’t like reggae but she likes Kanye West Shows how little she knows about real music. KW is a joke of an “artist”.

  • sandrae gunter

    who the f##k care…. u hate reggae the Genre that made RnB , Hip hop , Jazz, Country and many more…. may well say u hate music

  • rulersays

    Lorde needs to be educated on the greatness of all forms of music. Someone buy her the Legends album by Bob Marley, and let her still say she hates reggae. I bet she will be singing a new tune.

  • rulersays

    Rock is my thing but Reggae is too cool to ignore.

  • Crystal

    How can she be racist if she likes Kanye and Kendrick?? She is entitled to her opinion. There is no universal rule that states everyone has to like Reggae music or that everyone should have the same taste in music. People don’t like things everyday so I don’t see the big deal plus her tone didn’t come across as her being malicious in anyway. I just see a awkward young girl sharing her likes and dislikes with the world. Give the kid a break!!! Sincerely yours a JAMAICAN who doesn’t like dancehall, well at least the new music that is coming out now.

  • Sherna Nicole Leslie

    No, we don’t know what the hell you mean..so please explain..

  • Sherna Nicole Leslie

    late for what? …too late to realize that you just dissed a whole nation of people

    • Ika, Malawi

      She really just dissed Jamaica and a whole lot of africans

  • http://www.facebook.com/jdranetz Jeff Dranetz

    She’s an intense person, reggae is laid back and relaxing. I think she is fidgety and just wants to stay in motion. I felt that way about country music, until I got older. There’s the whole marijuana sub-culture around reggae which she, as a sober teen, thinks it’s destructive.

  • lordefanjoe

    Context please I thought she showed Humor, face it it was bloody funny kiwi humor, tbh who feels that funny bone when reggea is played like waiting for something to happen, it never does.

  • lordefanjoe

    turn the radio on you will hear it playing

    • NYC One

      Lordedfan tell her keep reggae out her stinking ugly mouth . She is not Lady Gaga . Fu– her .

    • marcus adams

      Raggae will be here forever. Her obnoxious music will not. Meth heads like her music… Need I say more?

  • sal 32

    I could care less what this (johnny come lately) racist b**ch and her kind have to say about Reggae music. She’s an @$$.

  • Guest

    The only ones who care what this crack head looking jerk has to say, is racist like herself.

  • marcus adams

    She is probably the only person on the planet who hates raggae music. But I’ll but she loves the party favors that comes with it.

    • lordefanjoe

      Her point is real when the Reggea comes on you know it’s time to leave the party. the favors you talk about can only lead to jail

      • marcus adams

        What ever. They all do it.

      • sal 32

        “When Reggea comes on you know its time to leave the party”.That only happened at your kind of parties. Plus a person have to be really ignorant to think that Reggae music is only about smoking marijuana. If that’s what you’re trying to say.

      • lordefanjoe

        supposed to be some sort of religion it acts like one all hate and abuse drugs and crime, proof me differant

      • sal 32

        “Proof me differant”. What the f*** is differant? First learn to spell, before you judge a whole genre of music. And I wont waste my time proving anything to narrow minded racist moron like you. Listen to the words of the music, not just a few selective songs, before you judge it, jackass!

      • sal 32

        Whatever. Just like other genres of music has a few songs which has lyrical content in it that can be interpreted as violent, idiot, so your point is? Reggae music does not promote crime or hatred. No surprise that you’re a fan of the racist b**ch; you’re an ignorant narrow minded jackass like her. And if marijuana is so terrible, then why are so many States in the U.S lobbying for it to be legalised?

  • Ika, Malawi

    I don’t give a f**k she does not like reggae. I don’t know who she is and care less what kind of music she plays coz I sure don’t listen to her kind of musik. Next time she shouldn’t comment about my muzik coz it makes her come across as being racist.

  • Guest

    Reggae music was not made to please critics!

  • KingChris

    her music sucks anyways!!!! She is ugly , limited talent one hit wonder. She will be forgotten by next year …I can guarantee.. Reggae Music, Drake and Kanye West will still be relevant next year.. But Lorde will be forgotten!!!!

  • Jods

    errrmmm… uhhh… its like saying… uhhh I hate Jamaicans Or Do I? DWL! I am the Jamaican here..

    • Jods

      I guess that’s her next question. ever body get ready to Rumble!!!! DRUM ROLLS!!!

  • amanda86

  • Tracie C.

    She’s a kid, and she’s entitled to like whatever kind of music she wants. Nobody is holding a gun to anyone who likes reggae. Calmmm Downnn
