Lorde’s bored with teenypop
LORDE is a rebel with a cause who refuses to sing typical ‘teen’ tunes. ‘A lot of teenage music is kind of expected to sound the same,’ said the 20-year-old, who has set her sights much higher.
‘I was like, “You know what, I could be Paul Simon in this moment. I could be Joni Mitchell or Kate Bush.” These people who were very young.’
Taylor Swift’s pal — real name Ella Yelich-O’Connor — said her new single Liability was partially inspired by RiRi. ‘It was just this moment of sadness,’ the New Zealand-born star told Zane Lowe on Beats 1 radio. ‘I was in this cab alone listening to Higher by Rihanna and I had a little cry.’
