“Lorde is cool. It’s about the words and the beat. It’s good music,”


Dizzee continued: “I like the song. She’s got common sense. She sounds like she’s influenced by the stuff she’s talking about.”

Continuing in the interview he also spoke about Miley Cyrus and said she was “a really clever girl”:
