Lorde Says Her "Mom" Comment About Naked Kim K. Photo Was Positive

Looks like the world just doesn't understand the way 18-year-old girls talk these days.  That's what Lorde is now saying about the misinterpretation of a comment she made about Kim Kardashian's naked photos for Paper magazine. Lorde posted a link to the photos and wrote, "mom."  Many believed that Lorde was criticizing Kim, the mother of a young girl, for posing nude; Glee star Naya Rivera made essentially the same criticism.  But as Lorde explains on Tumblr, her comment was a thumbs-up to Kim, who's married to the man she calls her "hero," Kanye West. "i retweeted kim’s amazing cover…
