Lorde Birth Certificate, Really 17?

lorde-birth-certificateLorde‘s birth certificate has finally been revealed & she isn’t lying about her age as many people on Twitter argued about. The Hairpin bought her birth certificate for $17.02 from New Zealand:

Lorde’s full name: Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor. Lorde’s DOB: 7 November 1996. Lorde is 17 years old: ‘At last, Lorde age truthers, the rumors can be put to rest: Lorde is not old, she is just more talented and successful than you were at 16 or perhaps than you ever will be, really.’

        @disqus_XJn7JKwRC6:disqus @marinaandmydiamonds:disqus well it’s true…

        • Marina And My Diamonds

          Nah, thanks but I’ll pass on that ‘truth.’

          She is quite talented though.

    i didn’t even know anyone was arguing over her age. let alone people were thinking she was lying about it.

  • boystan

    bye that’s so rude

    • in jesus name i pray amen

      agreed… who the fuck is questioning her age? When she’s been open about her age. If she was hiding it or being the least bit suspicious about it I’d understand.

  • boystan

    she doesn’t look that old, she actually looks her age

  • RegReach

    Can people but this
    what the hell kind country are they runnin

  • Emmatome

    This is f$cked up.

  • Nikki

    Why do people even care this much? She looks old, so what, get over already. Making something out of nothing once again.

  • in jesus name i pray amen

    Why is this even a thing? Did people REALLY not believe that she is 17? Im confused. This is just sad.

  • in jesus name i pray amen

    Dare I say it? I think people are questioning her age because she’s not very attractive. As if attractiveness has to do anything with age — which I guess old people are often associated with unattractive people — AND THAT IS SO FUCKED UP. I swear, if someone questioned my age and accused me of lying about my age, I would probably stab them with my fucking stilettos in their eye. How fucking rude and how DARE you.

  • Cici

    This is just mean. Because all of the questioning is because she doesn’t look a certain way. I hope none of this breaks her down. She is already a little uncomfortable with this all to begin with. I think she is wonderful.
