Lorde has said that she can relate to Kanye West as the rapper is less intimidating than teenage girls.
The 16-year-old, who has found fame with her song 'Royals' from her first album Pure Heroine, explained that she feels uncomfortable around her peers.
"When I meet a bunch of girls my age, I find that stressful as I'm just a high school student myself. I feel intimidated by them," she told The Sun.
"But meeting people like Kanye West - people who are into what you do and understand about having a vision - I can relate to.
"He is so driven and has such a unique way of seeing things. I'd love to work with him or Prince. Meeting Prince would be such an honour."
Lorde, real name Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor, added that she has no plans to twerk like 20-year-old Miley Cyrus during her career.
"It's something I'd never do - I wouldn't feel confident with my arse out. But if Miley feels comfortable doing it herself then it's no-one's business to judge," she said.
"If she wants to appear in her bra and panties then it's cool. Having been in an institution like Disney all her life, it's important she has fun. For now, it's not for me. It's not natural."
Lorde is also adamant she won't let fame affect her like Britney Spears and the late Amy Winehouse.
"Six months ago, no-one knew who I was and now fans chase my car," she said.
"But I'm never going to change or let fame get the better of me. I'll never go off the rails like Britney or do an Amy - because my upbringing was so normal."
