Details fight with sister
Lorde tells an awards ceremony in Auckland, New Zealand, how a vicious fight with her sister in a Las Vegas hotel room left her with a scar down her left arm.
Because I”m not old enough to go out and rave I’m just in my hotel room in Vegas. Me and my older sister were there and we were really tired and really sick, and we had a fight.

No offense, Lorde, but for the duration of the World Series, KFOG Radio will be a “Royals”-free zone. We’re sure… http://t.co/7uvseCjb03

Lorde appears on the cover of the October 2014 issue of Elle magazine. She talks about standing up for herself, expressing her opinions, and figuring out how to be a famous teen.
It’s very specific. I have definitely learned how to be flexible. Before, I would just be like, ‘F*ck it.’ I have such a strong idea of what is cool and great for me. If I think something is sh*t, I express that. But now the circle of people I work with all the time is huge and spans continents, and you have to be quite conscientious. So it’s, like, learning not to hurt people’s feelings. Obviously, I am hanging out with more people now who are not teenage; I’m in different circles. But I am a teenager. My brain is, like, a certain age. Everyone is talking about you. You have to learn not to care as much.

People have told me that I’ve helped them feel confident, like they can say things they want to say. They can talk about feminism in class without people calling them a lesbian. That’s so amazing that I can make someone feel like that.
Lorde is curating the entire soundtrack for the third installment of The Hunger Games movie series, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay. Lorde has been featured on previous soundtracks for The Hunger Games and will also feature a single from herself for the upcoming film.
…to be at the helm of a project like this is easily the most responsibility i’ve ever had, and to me, that says something kind of amazing about the way the world is changing – a globally successful film franchise is allowing a teenager to run their shit. we are opening doors, we are moving walls. this makes me so insanely happy.

Lorde appears on the cover of the May 2014 issue of Fashion magazine. She talks about kids today, industry stereotypes, and accomplishing things early.
I’m drawn to women who aren’t painted in history as sweet figures. Patti Smith was prickly. She was frustrated. She didn’t take people’s sh*t. There’s no better music idol for young women, because there is a lot of pressure for us to be really positive all the time. Every photo shoot I do, I get asked for big smiles, and I shouldn’t have to be that way.

Lorde appears on the cover of the May 2014 issue of Teen Vogue magazine. She talks about how she prefers her tomboy look.
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.
Lorde appears on the cover of the Spring 2014 issue of V magazine. She talks about choosing friends, being called the voice of the generation, and not wanting her music on the radio.
I want to let people stop hearing Lorde on the radio all the time, because it’s kind of crazy at the moment. I’d like to give people a little bit of breathing room before I unleash something different.

Lorde appears on the cover of the January 2014 issue of Rolling Stone magazine. She talks about finding strength, her perspective has changed, and gives advice to future musicians.
If you want your music to be heard. . . you can just put stuff on the Internet and people can love it and that’s cool. I think the industry is much less scary than people think it is. You have to go into it with an idea of who you are and what you want to do, and you have to have an idea of the things that you won’t do, and the things that you want to aspire to. Because if you have clear goals and absolute no’s for yourself, then people can figure it out. And then you won’t be left like, ‘Oh, sh*t, why did I do that …’ I don’t know, juice commercial.

I wrote the song when I was 15 and a half and for me it was a funny thing because we were listening to music that bragged about luxury…and we were riding are bikes everywhere and counting coins to get on the bus…
