Having knocked Miley Cyrus out of the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 probably makes it slightly easier to heap praise on the 20-year-old singer. But whatever her intentions are, Lorde is doing just that.

Answering fan questions during a new interview with MTV News, Lorde declared that Cyrus is her "favorite Disney pop star." The 16-year-old "Royals" singer doesn't skip a beat upon hearing the question, because why would she? The host suggests possibly Selena Gomez or Demi Lovato, which prompts Lorde to declare she "really enjoyed 'Camp Rock.'"

Despite Lorde's recent Billboard takeover, the two singers have appeared to remain friendly. Fans attacked Lorde on Twitter after "Royals" replaced "Wrecking Ball" on the chart, but Cyrus was quick to come to her defense.

We're glad to see Lorde and Cyrus aren't throwing shade at each other as rivaling pop divas, especially since some are deeming Lorde the "anti-Miley." "Royals" and "Wrecking Ball" were each singer's first No. 1 hit, so there's no need to get all bitter about anything.

Head over to MTV to watch the rest of Lorde's interview, during which you can find out whether she'd rather be Beyonce and Jay Z's daughter or Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's daughter.
