PRAISE THE LORDE!
A PRECOCIOUS TEEN SONGSTRESS AND SELF-PROCLAIMED WEIRDO, LORDE HAS SKYROCKETED TO INTERNATIONAL STARDOM. WHILE SHE MAY BE THE VOICE OF A NEW GENERATION, BACK HOME SHE'S STILL THE GIRL WHO JUST GOT HER OWN BEDROOM
Ella Yelich-O’Connor may be the coolest 17-year-old in the world, though she would never admit it. Better known by her stage name, Lorde, which comes from a long-standing fascination with opulence, the young New Zealander who took the world by storm last year with her standout debut single, “Royals,” still can’t quite believe the level of her celebrity.
“It’s pretty mental, really. I made this music in New Zealand at 15 years old with my producer, who was 28—just these two random losers, really. Now all these people like it, and they care about what I have to say, which is nice, because I’m the weirdo for sure. For the most part, people have been really supportive. I feel very grateful.”
