Pop star Zara Larsson didn’t appreciate one journalist writing about her pierced nipples after a recent concert.

The Daily Star wrote a piece about Larsson’s “intimate” piercings following a Friday night concert. They reported in part:

But, the 19-year-old neglected to wear a bra on her big night and that soon became apparent.

As she got into the grove, it appeared Zara was completely unaware that her entire chest was grabbing the spotlight too.

Zara’s skintight top revealed the outline of the Symphony singer’s pierced nipples.

Well, as I’m sure you can all imagine, that piece didn’t sit well with Larsson. She fired back on Twitter by quoting the article and tweeting, “Imagine going to school and get a degree, only to write about the fact that I have nipples lol.”

Larsson’s tweet is hovering around 50,000 retweets and nearly 175,000 likes. I think it’s safe to say that’s what we call a kill shot.

The Daily Star just wanted to write a piece about pierced nipples, and instead they got massacred in front of the world.

I didn’t know anything about Larsson before I read this story, but I’m a fan now. Everybody tries to fire shots on Twitter, but most of them fail. The Swedish pop star has no problem with that. She loaded up her metaphorical AR-15 on Twitter, and fired a shot to the dome.

Well done Larsson, well done.
