Lorde compared her friendship with Taylor Swift to an autoimmune disease

When dishing on her friendship with Swift, Lorde casually compared hanging with the A-lister to someone "with an autoimmune disease".

The 20-year-old songstress said she does not take her much-touted success seriously that came with popularity of the 2013 song and feels she will consider herself famous when she cracks "five fantastic records", reported FemaleFirst. There are certain places you can't go together, certain things you can't do. "Certain things you can't do", she told journalist Tom Lamont. These friendships, they're about having a hand put on your shoulder by someone who knows.

Some fans have taken Lorde to task for her "autoimmune disease" comment, especially those who suffer from such diseases.

She added: "It's like having a friend with an autoimmune disease".

This prompted Lorde to apologise on Twitter, writing: "Didn't mention Taylor, but regardless, I f***** up & that was really insensitive".

Lorde and Swift have been friends for years, with the New Zealand native running in the "Red" singer's group of celebrity gal pals.
