Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

Host David Koch then brought up the fact that she's part of Taylor's squad, to which she replied, "You make friends in different places, but I think for the most part, I'm not calling up my idols for advice necessarily." Lorde later clarified her comments in a Twitter statement, saying they were misconstrued. "Wow - something of a frustrating thing to have to address online but here we go. Taylor is a dear friend. »

"The second you think too hard about it, you'll just go insane," Lorde shared of how she "copes" with befriending her idols. "It's best to be like, 'We're in wonderland and it's just what happens around here.'"

Lorde has disassociated herself from Taylor Swift's squad. In an interview with Australia's Sunrise that aired Friday, co-host David Koch asked the New Zealand native about how she "coped" with befriending some of the people she'd idolized, like Beyoncé and Swift. "The second you think too hard about it, you'll just go insane," Lorde, 20, explained. "It's best to be like, 'We're in wonderland and it's just what happens around here.'"
