Lorde ‘I Don’t Flirt, Wink & All That Sh*t’

lorde-rolling-stone-2Lorde told Rolling Stone that during a photo shoot in New York: ‘The photographer kept saying, ‘Pop you hip out. Try to look cute. Big smiles, now’. And I was like, ‘I’m Number One in this coutnry not because I flirt and wink and all that shit, but because I’ve done exactly what I want to do. So, no, he did not get smile.’

‘Rookiemag.com founder said: ‘Everyone talks about Ella as the anti-Miley because she dresses like a witch and she doesn’t twerk. But it’s more nuanced than that. she’s not entirely a ‘good girl’, so to speak. She sings about partying, she curses liek a sailor and her songs aren’t completely asexual.

There’s a lot of teen rebel in her. People say, ‘Oh she’s the patron saint of the weird girls.’ No, a lot of people identify with er, not just weirdoes, and that’s why she’s a pop star. She reflects and intelligence in girls out age, and normalizes it. I’m so happy she exists.’

Lorde also talks about people calling her boyfriend ugly. Her mom on Lorde’s 24 year old boyfriend: ‘I didn’t say, ‘Yeah, sure, go date a 24 year old. But her dad and I met James ad we liked him. When Lorde was much younger her first boyfriend was older, four years or something.’

Lorde admitted that she saw people on Twitter bashing he boyfriend: ‘Lorde’s boyfriend looks like the chinese exchange student from sixteen candles.’ And, ‘Girl your boyfriend look like Mao Tse Tung’. ‘Some pretty nasty sh*t. You almost wonder about humans.’

In Auckland, NZ interracial relationships are common: ‘That’s why the reaction came as such of a surprise to me. No one I would even know would think this was a big deal.’ Scans below!

  • boystan

    do better ella

  • Gab

    Omg she needs to stfu. Almost as irrelevant as Miley.

  • Queen Amanda Bynes

    ‘ she’s not entirely a ‘good girl’, so to speak. She sings about partying, she curses liek a sailor’ so , good girls can curse and go to parties i don’t get their point tbh.

    What’s good about lorde is she is real and doesn’t pretend to be a saint , but she isn’t a rebel. She is a normal teenage girl . She isn’t bring told by people what to do like miley, Britney, Christina , Demi , Selena and Ariana were so what we see is exactly who she is and it’s refreshing.

      Sorry but Miley doesn’t play that game anymore, being told what to do.

      • Queen Amanda Bynes

        Yes she doesnt and I like her more because of it but I’m talking about when she was new like lorde

        • :)

          Let me get this straight, you like Miley more because she’s being told what to do?

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            no , i like how she is more herself now.but there are still someways i feel she isn’t being completely her self.but back inthe hannah montanna days she was fake and admitted it.like she was smoking weed at 14 but was pretending to be against drugs and stuff.its better her image is now who she really is

      • lol

        and look where that has landed her. Her music sucks, who knows what kinds of drugs shes on, and she has no dignity left. but i guess money and fame> dignity, right?

  • Alii

    Queeeen

  • :)

    Wouldn’t make a difference if she did wink or smile!!

  • Marina And My Diamonds

    Omg, it’s like my comment from the other post of her Rolling Stone magazine cover was answered. Creepy. I don’t like what she said about not smiling, smiling in a photo shoot isn’t going to change your music being number one nor does it make you less of yourself. And the interracial thing isn’t the part they were making a big deal about, they were pointing out his looks which I agree isn’t their right to judge.

    • :)

      She’s channeling the old Stevie Nicks look from back in the day.

      • Marina And My Diamonds

        Ooooo, nooooo, it’s not working for her in my opinion.

    • IGround

      She doesn’t feel like smiling, so why should it. It won’t change her music being number one? maybe. But ppl like her cause she’s true to herself. She smiles whenever she feels like smiling.

      • Marina And My Diamonds

        Ummmm, ok? Thanks for the redundancy.

  • RedneckAtHeart

    The whole not smiling thing is a bit creepy.

  • Lily

    This girl thinks she’s some special snowflake or some shit.

  • Silver

    If she is not flirting at age 16 what the hell is she doing? Teen years are the best! Live life.
    I hope she won’t come back in 5 years and start telling us how someone put her in a box and tried to suppress the ‘real her’ yadda yadda.

    • IGround

      If you read the interview, you’ll see she’s reffering to when a photographer asks her at a photoshoot to “pop her hip to the right, wink, smile”. And she’s saying she won’t do that if she doesn’t want to.

      • Silver

        My point exactly. It is a photo shoot for Gods sake. Why is she trying so hard to be different that she is missing one of the most beautiful things in life? Smiling and having fun.

        • IGround

          She is different, like many are, and she’s not TRYING to fit in like people expect her to. She doesn’t miss out on smiling, she does that whenever the heck she wants. As it’s stated on this interview, she said that quote while smiling. And she’s certainly having fun.
          Her music is better represented by her looking straight at the camera, with her face as she naturally is. So why would she wink at the camera, if it’s not representing her as an artist or her music? We’re just TOO used to “what should a photoshoot be like”.

          • Silver

            lol… I hope you are right. People say this about celebrities all the time when they just come up (especially young ones) and then they end up 5 years down the line bashing their peers, recording companies and everyone in between that for making them ‘stand out’ because of ‘the pressures of the industry’

  • XaskTaylorX

    Free country! Ya hear?!? Love how she takes on tasks. Lol.

  • Bailey

    i think she tries a little to much to be different and stand out. i feel like she thinks everything is lame.
