She restored peace in just one sentence.

Over the break, ex-couple Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles were photographed getting very handsy on a yacht in St. Barts (opens in new tab). Lorde, friend of Styles' other famous ex, Taylor Swift, posted an Instagram with a shoutout to all the fancy vacationers out there, writing "all the pretty famous boys and girls are on yachts or in Saint Barth's." But, she clarified later after the commenters freaked (opens in new tab), she did not mean THEM

"Lol no 'shade' folks," she wrote. "If I were on an island or in even nearish proximity to a yacht you would be hearing all the fuck about it, just making fun of my own lameness." 

And that's how you restore peace with just one sentence. (Also, excellent question about the St. Barts vs. St. Barths thing, Lorde...let us know if you figure that out.)
