Lorde praises Kim Kardashian for naked magazine cover

Pop star Lorde is adamant her previous comments about Kim Kardashian's controversial naked photoshoot have been taken out of context, insisting the reality TV star's full-frontal portrait is "beautiful" and "pure heaven".

Kardashian hit headlines earlier this week (beg10Nov14) when snaps taken by photographer Jean-Paul Goude for Paper magazine emerged online.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star shared the pictures on her Instagram.com page, and Lorde posted a comment, simply writing "MOM". Many fans believed it to be a negative remark, similar to Glee star Naya Rivera's damning response, which read, "I normally don't. But... you're someone's mother..."

The Royals hitmaker has now written a post on her Tumblr.com blog to explain she was actually praising Kardashian and accidentally got lumped in with Rivera's message.

Lorde writes, "Time to explain this. I retweeted Kim's amazing cover and wrote 'MOM', which among the youthz (sic) is a compliment; it basically jokingly means 'adopt me/be my second mom/I think of you as a mother figure you are so epic'... but straight after that I think someone else called out the cover saying Kim has no right to look that sexy as she is a mother which is total trash - why should that stop her? If anything I think she gets even more beautiful and sexy all the time like a fine a** wine, and of course has every right to showcase that - but I think our two comments got lumped in and also maybe (people) don't understand my breed of humour/worship... Kim's cover was pure heaven. So, so beautiful. I'm proud to say it'll be on my wall. ps. I messaged our mutual friend straight away and made sure Kim understood, and she does and all is well."
