If you look hard enough there’ll always be a link to Eurovision.Or at least that would seem to be the case. For who would have thought that critics’ favourite du jour, Lorde, was a fan of boyband manband Blue? Speaking to “The Observer” she shared her thoughts on Blue’s “One Love”, the first song to ever catch her imagination.

That was a gem. I was always drawn to songs with that innate catchiness.

Aww, ain’t it sweet when one of the cool kids admits to liking a good dollop of manufactured pop. The lads in Blue sure were happy to read her comments and took to Twitter to share their apprecitaion.

 

However, Lorde’s musical tastes have changed somewhat in the intervening years (she was 6 when “One Love” was released):

I look to Kanye [West] for inspiration in a lot of things, and his ability to kind of reinvent and keep throwing curveballs with each record. He’s able to keep things interesting

Unfortunately, there’s no word on what she thought of Blue’s Eurovision effort “I Can”. Until she says otherwise, I think we should assume that she was a huge fan of it, and by default Eurovision. Agreed?

@Padraig Jude: You know nothing about this girl (after all it’s not Eurovision material .. until the day she takes a pill and decides to particiapate) and you know nothing about me. But one thing is clear: she is just being sarcastic about these “guilty pleasures” of a 6 or 7 year old who looks back in time asking herself “what was I thinking” like literally everyone in the world. She loves Blue as much as she loves everybody else she’s been amusingly bashing in the media. I can only wonder what she would say of a Serduska or Conchista… Read more »

@Padraig Jude: Do you expect me to believe that at 17 now she is seriously looking back at he childhood music taste and praiseit , to consider it “a gem”? A girl like her that is making sure everyone knows how upfront, critical and opinionated she is against everything and everybody? Seriously? Come on …
