Lorde: 'A female without clothing isn't a terrible influence'

New Zealand based songstress Lorde has revealed that she can't believe a female singer wearing a skimpy outfit is berated as a 'terrible' role model.

Speaking to London's Evening Standard newspaper, the 'Royals' superstar admitted that there are worse things to show to youngsters than scantily-clad women and she doesn't see provocatively dressed pop stars as a bad influence:

"People should stop worrying about their daughters. I don't see a female without clothing as a terrible influence."

She concluded: "There are worse things. Shooting people. Glorifying violence."

Lorde went onto add that Bajan beauty Rihanna seems to get most of the criticism, but she doesn't understand it as the 'Umbrella' sensation is strong and confident:

"You can't not look at Rihanna. I would buy anything Rihanna sold me. The way Rihanna embodies being a sexual woman... She's so fearless and confident, I just love her."
