"The irony is not lost on me."
The Star.com recently spoke to Lorde who commented on her new stardom and how she still stays normal despite her recent fame. Below are some highlights.
Lorde on how she's now surrounded by the materialistic things she's criticized in her music: "The irony is not lost on me. I definitely don't feel like I'm living in a particularly extravagant sort of way, which I think is good because I think for me, personally, if I was thrown into that kind of thing I wouldn't know how to deal with it. I think it's good to kind of keep on keeping on: just do what you have normally done and sort things into a stride."
Lorde on being wise beyond her years: "Is that an odd thing?. I've always written and read and that's been a part of me that's superimportant. And it's a really good outlet for me to be able to say whatever I'm thinking and whatever it is that I'm trying to process. So I don't think it's too weird. And I also think people my age these days . . . with the Internet, you know, you can be making beats out of your bedroom and be a superstar."
Lorde on her interest in making music: "My kind of interest in making music was born out of this desire to hear something that I hadn't yet heard. I guess it was never really going to be interesting for me to do something that had been done a lot of times. Because, yeah, I wanted to make something that I thought was fresh and felt kind of new."
