Posted on April 15, 2014
Lorde covers the May 2014 issue of Teen Vogue. She is wrapped in a big plaid bow on the cover. In the Teen Vogue interview, Lorde talks about being labeled as moody and grumpy because of her style. She also talks about Hilary Duff attending one of her concerts and how her life has changed because of her sudden fame.
On Being Labeled Moody: "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 Learning That Hilary Duff Attended Her Concert: "Hilary Duff? Are you freaking serious? Hilary Duff was there last night? This is what dreams are made of! Was she vibing it? Was she bobbing her head? 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 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."
