Lorde "sucks" at being famous.
The ‘Green Light’ hitmaker doesn’t think she is very good in the fame department but feels she is actually getting less famous now.
She said: "When it was happening, I was quite overwhelmed by it. But that was a long time ago. If anything, I’ve slowly been getting less famous since ‘Royals’ was really big. Which is totally cool for me … I suck at being famous. And that’s fine."
And the 20-year-old singer says it "rocked her foundations" when she bumped a popular artist from number one and faced the wrath of their fans.
She added: "It rocked my foundations and could have f***ed me, you know? I remember being made aware of my looks and my body in a way that I had never been.
"I remember all these kids online, I think I beat their favourite people to Number One, and they were like, ‘F**k her, she’s got really far-apart eyes’. I remember being like, ‘Whoa! How did I get all this way without knowing I had far-apart eyes?’ Just weird s**t like that. But I was able to return to my family and shelter against that and get to where I am now. I feel so comfortable in myself."
And Lorde – whose real name is Ella Yelich-O’Connor – felt "empowered" writing about personal experiences on her latest album ‘Melodrama’.
She told NME magazine: "I think that when you do this, you have to find a way to live with yourself, because it’s not making no one feel anything.
"But it was important for me to say. And I don’t think that song is apologising for it. It’s more like, what did you think was going to happen? I was doing this before I met you and I’ll be doing this after you’re gone … I felt quite empowered."
