Was Lorde Actually Throwing 'Shade' At Harry Styles And Kendall Jenner?

by Anna Menta

Lorde recently commented her apparent Instagram caption shade toward Harry Styles and Kendall Jenner was not meant to be shady; it was just some classic, well-lit self-deprecation.

After Styles and Jenner were photographed on a yacht in St. Barts, the teen singer posted an Instagram with a caption observing that "all the pretty famous boys and girls are on yachts or in saint barth's" for vacation while she, Lorde, the incredibly successful and Grammy-winning teen singer, was sadly stuck at home.

Fans were quick to speculate she was talking about a pretty famous boy and pretty famous girl in particular, but Lorde went back and clarified no disrespect was intended.

Lorde stated she was "just making fun of [her] own lameness," not trying to call anyone out for chilling in St. Barts. (For those of us like Lorde, it is usually abbreviated B-a-r-t-s and is a lavish Caribbean island vacation spot.)

Listen, I love making fun of my own lameness too, Lorde, but I know shade when I see it.

Now, if said shade was directed toward a certain floppy-haired pop singer and his maybe-ex girlfriend, who's to say?

But there are definitely some pretty rich kids posting pics out there that are making Lorde's blood boil, and honestly, I don't blame her.

Hate to break it to you though, Lorde, but you're one of the ~royals~ now, too! I'm sure you'll get that Caribbean vacay soon.
