Lorde Covers Teen Vogue, Talks Being Called The “Grumpy Girl”
I never thought I’d see the day that singer Lorde wasn’t wearing dark lipstick! And I absolutely love this natural look on her, it shows off her softer side and maybe now all those people will stop referring to her as that “grumpy girl”.
With all the success that Lorde has had just this year alone, she opens up in the new issue of Teen Vogue about how much her life has changed. She also talks about being feminine despite what some people may think and growing up in New Zealand.
On discovering Hilary Duff is a fan:
“This is the most insane thing that’s ever happened to me. That’s my childhood right there. Hilary Duff is a fan — that freaks me out!”
On being herself:
“There are a lot of expectations in this industry about looking a certain way and having a certain kind of appeal. I am feminine, but I really love dressing in boys’ clothes too. I guess that’s why I get labeled as ‘the grumpy girl,’ because I don’t play into that.”
On growing up in New Zealand:
“I was friends with all the boys and kind of bratty, nerdy, and quiet. I was probably really obnoxious to hang out with.”
On how her life has changed:
“Living in New Zealand, you don’t get these experiences. I spent so much time in my room before. My life is so wild right now. For me to be able to do something I really enjoy and for that to get me out in the world — to South America, to here, to London — every day I kick myself, I’m so lucky.”
