Lorde told The West Australian: ‘I bought myself a bed. Like I don’t really splurge or anything.. I bought some nice art for my room and I got it framed and stuff so they were kind of splurges I guess.
The thing with being famous is as soon as you have enough money to buy whatever you want you get given everything for free, which kind of doesn’t make sense to me. It’s like ‘Why? You can finally get my money and now you don’t want it’.’
She still has to overcome crushing nerves: ‘I, like, totally threw up before my show last night. I am reduced by nerves. I can be completely crushed by feelings of all kinds. Usually I just tell myself, like ‘The second you get up there it’s going to be fine’, and I always know it’s going to be fine and I always have a great time so, you know, I just try and tell myself that ‘You’ll be in your zone.
The lights will be on and blank people will be cheering and, you know, it’ll be OK’. It’s kind of an adrenaline thing I guess. I get off stage and I’m kind of jittery.. You definitely have to come down from it but it’s nice. It’s definitely feeling like a really comfortable place for me now. But I get nervous, I get freaked out, I get, you know, the usual stuff.’
