Lorde Won’t Become ‘Mental Disney Star’

lorde-interview-gq-magazine-novemberLorde, 16, to GQ when ‘Royals’ made Top 10: “I was like, ‘Oh fuck.’ The irony was not lost on me.. I am so used to not having money that spending over $200, I don’t even think I could do it.’

Her mom is chaperoning her because she never traveled outside of New Zealand before ‘Royals’ blew up: ‘It trips me out. I made this song, and now, a year later, I am in Paris performing it on a TV show.’ Her music a far cry from those of the standard Disney-groomed teenage nightmares:

‘The difference between those kids and me, is that I grew up completely normally and went to parties and had that experience. I am way less inclined to be like, ‘Look! I’m fucking mental!’

    Majority of 16 year olds nowadays drink at parties, have smoked (cigarettes or weed) before and had sex. When you do stuff like that at a young age, you get tired of it after like a year or two and it’s not something that you wanna brag about to the world to show how grown you are anymore. That’s what she means
