20-year-old ‘Royals’ singer LORDE covers the newest issue of Rolling Stone and had a lot to share with the mag!
On why she uses the stage name LORDE: “I don’t know, it’s a bit boring: Ella Yelich-O’Connor. Can you imagine them shouting it at a festival? It just made sense to me to elevate it.”
ON becoming famous at 16: “Now I can look back and be like, ‘That was f*cked. All of it. F*cked. Insane.’ But everyone’s so crazy when they’re 16. I think if you tell a 16-year-old that they’re going to Mars – ‘We’re gonna get on a rocket and go, and that’s going to be your life’ – they’d be like, ‘OK, like, that’s all well and good, but I’m doing this thing by myself right now, and that’s what’s important.’ Everything kind of normalized week to week.” On going back to school: “I think that moment’s going to come where I’m like, ‘OK, let’s listen to someone else talk about what it means to be a human being.’” Check out her cover above and for more of Lorde in Rolling Stone, click HERE.
