Today* Star – Lorde

Today* Star – Lorde

She’s baaack and she’s ready to murder the stage!

Sadly, though, Lorde’s new music is focused on her first major heartbreak.  Turns out, she and her longtime boyfriend, James Lowe, called it quits.  I know… no one told us!  How rude!  But, it’s something Lorde says was devestating, so maybe it was a good thing she was able to tend to her broken heart in private.  Because, now she’s over it and turned all those raw and negative emotions into her latest smash-hit “Green Light.”

Lorde is a 19 year old girl from New Zealand. Her actual name is Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor. She took singing and drama classes when she was little and was signed to Universal Records when she was just 13 years old. She decided to go as “Lorde” because she has always been fascinated with royalty, especially the British Monarchy.
