Lorde ‘Media Almost Pushed Me Over’

lorde-swift-later-on (2)Grammy winner Lorde Tweeted then deleted: ‘nz media almost pushed over myself and my family at the airport this morning in order to get their shots. bit of a sad welcome if i’m honest.

I understand that people of note are supposedly fair game for everyone to photograph and film but that doesn’t make it acceptable. I’m beginning to get used to my image as a public commodity, the fact that I’m getting used to it frightens me.

There is a difference between attn from fans, which i love, and the constant, often lecherous gaze that i’m subjected to in this industry. I know that success comes with a price tag. it just sucks when you see that in your tiny home country where you previously felt safe.’

    I don’t know why, but Lorde looks so fucking old for a seventeen year old. Is it her hair? is it her makeup? Is it her face? I don’t know. All I know is that in that picture, Lorde honestly looks forty.

    She’s so damn right. It must be scary.
