It was a huge honor...
Lorde revealed to News.co.au that Bruce Springsteen's recent cover of "Royals" in Auckland, New Zealand made her "tear". He did change the lyric "You can call me Queen Bee" to "King Bee" for obvious reasons, but otherwise was very faithful.
She said: "My Twitter went mental, everyone in New Zealand was like ‘You can't believe what just happened!' It was so exciting, it was the highest honor. He's such an incredible songwriter. I got a little teary. It was very cool. It's crazy when someone like that is covering your song. Those words were nothing before I put them into my laptop and started messing around with them in the studio. It's crazy to me they could come out of someone's mouth who is that respected."
When told her album Pure Heroine passed one million sales in the US this week, she replied: "How mental is that, right? I was pretty pumped."
