Lorde: 'I get so frustrated when people call me the anti-Miley'

'Team' songstress Lorde has revealed that it's important to support other women in the music industry, especially female solo artists, but it's difficult because of how members of the press approach the subject and try to provoke reactions.

During an interview with Q, Lorde explained that she's tired of being referred to as 'the antithesis of Miley Cyrus' because it's important not to pit women against each other in music:

"I get really frustrated about people putting me as the anti-Miley. I think that's one of the things journalists concoct in their offices. People love to pit female artists against each other in pop, which just seems like the silliest thing ever. It's not some kind of fight to the death."

"People kind of think I don't wear bras and underwear in my videos because I think there's something wrong with it -  I don't. I just don't feel super comfortable with that and I don't think that it would help my music to come across any different."

Lorde, meanwhile, will perform a headlining concert at London's Brixton Academy on June 6 and she tweeted about her excitement for the show, which is sold out, writing: "Seriously, London is my absolutely favourite place, this is going to be so great."
