The 'Royals' singer recently criticized Gomez's music in an interview with Rolling Stone, saying that she was "sick of women being portrayed in this way".

Gomez told Seventeen: "I recently did an interview and they asked me who I thought was up-and-coming and making a difference. I said, 'She doesn't like me, but Lorde.' I'm going to support her whether she likes me or not, because I think she's doing great things. Some day I will see her and we'll be cool.

The Come And Get It singer added that the past year has made her start feeling "really powerful." "I had always been the underdog secretly. I was on Disney when it was Miley [Cyrus], the Jonas Brothers, and Demi [Lovato]," she explained. "I questioned the way I looked, acted, sang, and wrote.

"Then I turned 20, went through a really bad breakup, and realized I needed to have Come & Get It be amazing. I wanted it all to be me. I'm glad it's taken me this long to get where I am because now I am ready for it."

Gomez previously said that Lorde's comments about her were "not feminism".

Modern Family star Winter emancipated herself from her emotionally abusive "stage mother," Chrisoula Workman, in 2015, and was placed in the custody of her older sister, Shanelle Gray, in the meantime. "This is what she wanted me to do, and she pushed very hard for that and kind of put that in the forefront of her mind instead of what I wanted and what I needed," she told People about her mother. "And that was definitely hard, but I don't think that was the only issue." She also addressed the difficulty of growing up under the paparazzi's gaze: "It's really hard to have that kind of drama in your life and to be going through that tough situation and have an open court case and have everyone look at it, because it's already hard enough for abuse victims, but it's harder in the public eye when everybody has an opinion," she explained.
