Lorde, ‘I’m A Hugely Sex-Positive Person’

lorde-sex-positive (1)Lorde told V Magazine: ‘People like to paint me in a certain way, but I’m a hugely sex-positive person and I have nothing against anyone getting naked. For me personally I just don’t think it really would complement my music in any way or help me tell a story any better.

It’s not like I have a problem with dancing around in undies, I think you can use that stuff in a hugely powerful way. It just hasn’t felt necessary for me.’ Lorde will kick off her North America tour on March 3 in Austin. FULL tour dates under! Are YOU going to see Lorde on tour?

    the first picture scares the shit out of me.. it’s like she’s staring into my soul

    • laura

      she doesn’t even look directly in the camera?
      she is just staring at nothing so you’re safe, no worries :)

      • um

        but she IS looking directly in the camera???

        • um

          at the camera**

        • um

          at the camera**

        • laura

          she’s not.
          I don’t really know how to properly explain it but basically, she’s staring right beside the camera and she’s staring down. like at a place further than the camera.
          I hope it makes sense :s

    She’s so fucking beautiful, lovely photoshoot. I love that she’s always defining what kind of feminist she is. She doesn’t have to but it sure shuts up all the butthurt haters.

    • YES

      I know! It’s so great that she proudly claims being a feminist and that she explains it because many people don’t understand actual feminism. Kind of sad that someone so young knows more about feminism than a lot of other adult stars. You go Lorde lol.

      • laura

        everyone has their own definition of feminism tbh. Back in the day, that definition was burning your bra and not shaving. Now it’s more focused on stopping slut shaming and double standards.
        It depends, you know. But I agree, she’s very wise beyond her years :) and I think she’s a good role model for other girls.

        • YES

          Very true. Most people that I come across have a very narrow view of feminism unfortunately. They think it’s still/exclusively about burning bras, hairy legs,and boycotting Disney Princesses. There are so many amazing things happening within the Feminist movement and many great causes people are working towards. It’s great to see someone like Lorde who has a level non extreme view of feminism share her perspective so hopefully people will open their eyeballs and not be so quick to discredit it. I sadly know A LOT of women that discredit feminism because they don’t bother to look into it. She is certainly a great role model :).

    • in jesus name i pray amen

      I used to hate her bc she would literally shit on everyone lol, but I learned to appreciate the realness. It’s about time someone calls these bitches out tbqh, ppl aren’t perfect and I think Lorde definitely embraces that. Like her criticism of Taylor Swift– I think it was in spirits to show it’s unrealistic to hold ppl up to certain standards

  • Cici

    So beautiful & wise beyond her years

  • cerenagee

    I think Lorde is absolutely stunning.

  • lordefan

    I love her looks, I mean, not when she’s goth. Not that I have anything against it or that I think she should look like a barbie, but I feel like when she’s like this her beauty comes very natural to my eyes. She has a different kind of beauty and her hair is the typical hair many girls would fight to become straight, but I hope she never straightens it. Everything about her makes her beautiful.

  • beauty!

    I think Lorde reminds me of Hermione Granger. Huge bushy hair, kind of insecure about her looks, bossy, but wise and clever for her age. And, as any Harry Potter fan, we love Hermione despite her flaws, and that’s how it goes with Lorde. I’m glad she’s not a perfect plastic pop star.

  • Rosemary

    Give her a couple of more years…they all start out as “good girls”

  • in jesus name i pray amen

    Am I the only one who gets Taylor Momsent ‘dgaf attitutde’ vibes from Lorde? It all seems so familiar. It’s something I appreciate and actually really enjoy.

    • in jesus name i pray amen

      Except– there’s a difference about the ‘dgaf attitude’ that Miley emits. Because Miley. OBVIOUSLY gives a fuck, hence why she tries so hard to get attention for herslef, hence her shock value antics. Lorde and TayMomsen are true ‘dgaf’ers

  • laura

    you know what I like about Lorde? that she’s not one of those pretty girls which actually makes her so beautiful to me. Because she is real. She isn’t a size 0, her hair is uncontrollable (she said so herself) and she isn’t a classical beauty. In dutch, we would say she has a ‘karakterkop’ which means that there is something to her, something that isn’t perceived as beautiful, that makes that person so interesting, mysterious, attractive and beautiful. I freaking love people like that.
    I don’t exactly like her music, but I like her : )

  • queenamanda

    stop saying she is an unconventional beauty please. put her in high school and she would stick out like a sore thumb. her look is ‘unique’but she is still conventionally pretty tbh

    an unconventional beauty is someone who should be deemed unattractive but isnt. maybe someone with different facial features like a large nose, big lips ,etc.lordes face is quite normal.

    dont get me started on her hair 59 percent of my school has curly haired girls,heck even taylor swift has curly hair and she is the definition of conventional beaty

    also lorde dresses the way everyone who shops at urban outfitters dresses.she is gorgeous but far from unconventional or unique……

    • queenamanda

      to clearifiy mean she would stick out in high school because she is so gorgeous,

    • lols

      No, I do think she’s unique and unconventional. There are MANY people who say she’s ugly or looks like Michael Jackson (comment below) and honestly in the beginning her on OU no one praised her, idk what happened now. Everyone would call her weird and ugly face, search for the old posts about her. And I think her nose is kind of big and I don’t think Lorde was any popular in high school. If she is now, it’s because of the fame. But she herself said she has friends that are “weirdos”. Her face is not delicate like most girls, and she has strong traits. Plus, many people have curly hair, yes, but most of them straighten it, so this is something that makes Lorde unique. So no, I don’t think she’s conventionally beautiful, just like I don’t think Lea Michele is conventionally beautiful. You have to remember that photoshop will always correct their faces/bodies, but if you see a pic of them in a concert or an event, you’ll know what I mean.

      • gia

        her real name is ella and she was popular in high school. she threw/went to ALOT of parties and shit around auckland,my couisns lives in her town and shes like a legend there, and she dances the same as she does onstage at partys apperently.

        • Zaina777

          The Michael Jackson thing wasn’t meant to be an insult. They look alike. I think she is pretty in a unique way. It’s cute for her age. She isn’t generic.

  • in jesus name i pray amen

        No. She does, look at them side by side and tell me that she doesn’t look like him.

  • flopcyrus

    sex positive? what does she mean HIV?

    • dkdhjs

      It just means she isn’t a repressed conservative prude when it comes to sex.
