Lorde. I'm sure everyone is aware of the name by now. Lorde's (real name Ella) smash hit Royals can be heard on several radio formats across the country! If you've been keeping up with social media and pop culture news, you also know that Lorde is from New Zealand and is just seventeen years old.
Over the last few months I have become a big fan of Lorde and here's why: AGE-I'm making Lorde's age a factor just for knowing the way I behaved at seventeen. Lorde way surpasses my maturity level at that age, ha! Joking aside, Lorde knew what she wanted to do at a young age. She's been reading intense novels and writing songs since the age of thirteen.
MODESTY: Lorde literally went from being a girl in the world, to a household name and Grammy winner! With all her success, she gives most of the credit to her friends & peers. "People my age are so smart and so creative and no one even thinks about it...I just observe and write it down.
CAREFREE: Lorde's whole attitude to negative words posted on social media and the internet in general. Lorde pays no mind. She goes on stage, does her thing, and I respect that. She was nominated for 4 Grammys last Sunday and took home TWO! Pretty impressive for her first Grammy Awards night! If you want to get to know Lorde on a personal level but are pressed for time, no worries! Check out the 90 second video below!
