Lorde: “The Phrase ‘Teen Hottie’ Makes Me Want To Throw Up”

Lorde says she’s a pop princess at heart in her latest interview with The New York Times. The Royals singer admits, “I’m a pop princess at heart. Pop is about distilling what you want to say and making it easy. And the way I write isn’t about making it easy. It’s a weird juxtaposition.”

The 17-year-old adds she’s no sell out stating, “I would like to think that my public persona comes naturally to me and isn’t that dissimilar to my real way of doing things. I’ve turned down easily tens of millions of dollars doing what I do and saying no to things that I think are corny.”

Speaking about her new single Team she shares, “The phrase ‘teen hottie’ literally makes me want to throw up.”

The video is “the idea of an outsider experiencing this world that is inhabited by teens, and seeing it like someone on the outside would see it and then getting more and more involved. I’m trying to make something people my age will care about, trying to keep my peers feeling like I’m doing something for them or representing them in some way.”

Lorde also says her message is “about strength and about power” – adding, “I would like them to think that the sky’s the limit, that there’s really not anything you can’t do. After all, I’m from New Zealand. This shouldn’t happen to people like me.”
