She's not happy..
MTV reports that Lorde has complained about the media's "lecherous gaze" on Twitter after she returned to New Zealand. She showed up in Auckland after the Grammys on Sunday, where she said the media "almost pushed over" her and her family. She has since deleted the tweets.
She wrote: "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. There is a difference between attn [sic] from fans, which I love, and the constant, often lecherous gaze that I'm subjected to in this industry."
She also said that she's scared she is getting used to her "image as a public commodity".
She added: "I understand that people of note are supposedly fair game for everyone to photograph and film but that doesn't make it acceptable. 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."
