The 17-year-old singer, Lorde is clarifying her comments about rappers Drake and Nicki Minaj she made in an interview with Intrview Magazine.

"Around the middle of last year I started listening to a lot of rap, like Nicki Minaj and Drake, as well as pop singers like Lana Del Rey. They all sing about such opulence, stuff that just didn't relate to me -- or anyone that I knew," Lorde said. "I began thinking, 'How are we listening to this? It's completely irrelevant.'"

The "Royal" singer tweeted Tuesday that her comments weren't meant to be disrespectful or taken as a diss writing, "just because their songs aren't my reality (being 17 and from auckland) doesn't mean i don't admire their musicianship and careers!"

Well, beef squashed!
