Lorde features in March issue of Vogue Magazine

After working together for nearly a decade, Lorde and her manager, Scott Maclachlan have parted ways. Maclachlan discovered Lorde before she was even a teenager and guided her as she achieved success with "Royals" and her other work. 

But, as is the case with most things, everyone is a critic. Her decision has caused many to weigh in on their parting of ways--including Guardian journalist Eamonn Forde.

Forde writes: 

The proof of whether Lorde has made the right decision about her management will come with her second album. That’s when we’ll discover whether it was a record that might have been improved by a dissenting voice.

Not exactly a diss but distinctly diss-like. 

So how does Lorde respond?

When someone hits you with the nail polish emoji, you know class is dismissed. 

Forde cited The Beatles and the Rolling Stones as examples of musical acts which had suffered after losing a manager. Lorde, however, seems to have enough confidence in herself to keep it moving when it comes to criticism of her work.
