KIWI singing sensation Lorde has been called out by influential celebrity blogger Perez Hilton for "dissing" Selena Gomez's music.

Hilton, who writes celebrity gossip on his website and boasts more than six million Twitter followers, posted an excerpt from a Rolling Stone interview the Takapuna teen did before her current US tour.

Lorde, real name Ella Yelich-O'Connor, told the magazine she was a feminist and disagreed with the way women were portrayed in some songs.

"I love pop music on a sonic level. But I'm a feminist and the theme of her song [Come & Get It] is, 'When you're ready come and get it from me.'

"I'm sick of women being portrayed this way," the excerpt said.

Hilton described the comment as "Round 1 of the Selena Gomez vs. Lorde feud".

And he warned Lorde to "watch out for Selenita's [Gomez's nickname] diehard fans".

The remark has been quickly making its way around the internet, with many fans protecting former Disney star Gomez, 21, whose Come & Get It single became her first Top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart when it was released in April.

In an interview with Radio New Zealand's Kim Hill that aired on Saturday, Lorde, who turns 17 in November, elaborated on her feminist beliefs.

"I think a lot of pop music and how females are portrayed in pop music is not a super healthy thing and I try and stay away from it," she said.

"A song came out recently by a big pop star and the lyrical thing is 'when you're ready come and get it, I'll be sitting right here just waiting' and I just find that so pathetic and I don't think girls should be listening to that kind of thing and I don't think that is normal or healthy."

Lorde recently bore the ire of Miley Cyrus fans after her song Royals overtook Cyrus on the iTunes Charts.

Royals is at No3 on the Billboard chart, and her album Pure Heroine, released in Australasia on Friday and due to hit the United States today, has received rave reviews.
