Lorde's Boyfriend James Lowe Blogs About Their Relationship!

Lorde‘s boyfriend James Lowe has spoken out about dating the Grammy-winning singer for the first time in a new blog post.

The 24-year-old photographer refers to his girlfriend Lorde, 17, with her real name Ella Yelich-O’Connor.

“I’ve written, deleted, re-written, and deleted this post at least five times over the past few months, wondering when would be an appropriate time to start writing again,” he explains. “Since originally sitting down to write this post, Ella has become a two-time Grammy winner. She has taken home a Brit too. Currently she is on the opposite side of the world on tour. As much as I miss her, I couldn’t be prouder of what she has achieved so far.”

“My life is probably a lot different now, but it feels normal on the inside,” James continued in the post. “Jared Leto said that fame doesn’t change you, it changes everyone around you. While I’m not the centre of attention here (and f–k, the times I have, it’s never been fun), I do become aware of the people around me and their transparency.”

“Everybody returns someday.”

Someday indeed.

In the previous post I was getting excited to watch a new series – True Detective, and now that show has come and gone. My blog took a back seat, because for once I started actually living in the present as opposed to trying to hold on to the past. It always takes something special to pull you out of a slump, and while I seem to constantly have one foot in mine, I’m trying hard to have both feet on even ground.

I’ve written, deleted, re-written, and deleted this post at least five times over the past few months, wondering when would be an appropriate time to start writing again. Thinking to myself, when I would need to start writing again. While posting on tumblr has kept blogging here at bay, at some point having a voice behind the pictures is becoming equally important to me. I’ve always said it’s up to you, the viewer, to decipher what the photograph means (perhaps out of laziness to bother explaining, a trait i’ve gained from art school). Now, however – having experienced how wrong taking the silent seat can go – I’d rather clear the air about a lot of misconceptions out there. To challenge the voices of ignorant writers who cower behind their anonymous comments.

Since originally sitting down to write this post, Ella has become a two time grammy winner. She has taken home a Brit too. Currently she is on the opposite side of the world on tour. As much as I miss her, I couldn’t be prouder of what she has achieved so far. If you are lucky enough to attend one of her shows on this current tour, you’ll experience more than just her voice. The production she has dreamt up looks incredible… I can’t wait to see it myself next month.

If someone asked me what this blog was about, I really wouldn’t know how to answer… It started off as something trying to battle the giant that is tumblr, to escape a world of what I would say is original content lost – a seemingly endless stream of half naked girls and cats and it all repeated again and again: I have learnt that if you’re not putting up your own photos, someone else will, and they WILL take credit for your work. This blog developed into a series of words and pictures, thoughts and often over-thoughts about trying to live in a country that wasn’t my own, about trying to be in a relationship with a girl who lives 6000 miles away, about whatever the fuck someone in their 20′s shouldn’t be doing, but currently is. My life is probably a lot different now, but it feels normal on the inside.

Jared Leto said that fame doesn’t change you, it changes everyone around you. While I’m not the centre of attention here (and fuck, the times I have, it’s never been fun), I do become aware of the people around me and their transparency. They fail to hide it. I’ve experienced being a target of the tabloids, finding moments I thought I was in safe hands splattered all over the internet, being pushed and shoved, or watching others get pushed and shoved by paparazzi just to get what they think they’re entitled to. While I’m dragging on about the negative aspects, they are only a small part of my world now. There is a bright, shining silver lining to this thing I’ve been exposed to. I’ve had the privilege to sit on an aircraft for 12 hours, cramped, exhausted but happy (like Louis CK once said, “YOU’RE FLYING. YOU’RE SITTING IN A CHAIR IN THE SKY!”). I’ve been able to tell tales of the many amazing people I’ve met along the way – from fellow photographers, to artists I’ve always admired and never thought I’d get to meet, let alone have a simple thing like coffee with… People who seem to scramble the words within your brain and the only thing you end up doing is blurting out ‘HILSKDFLKWELK’ (at some point it’s a verbal greeting, but ends up a flurry of sweat mixed with spit). More importantly, I’ve found a little inspiration from new faces. People I look up to. People whose work I admire so much. For all of this I have to thank the one I look up to the most. Who I admire the most. Who still fills the little voids I try to avoid.

Some stories I keep for the memory banks, and some I’ll share here. Currently I am mostly at home trying to carry on with real life (and I call it real life even though for the most part it is all still so surreal).

While the posts may still be few and far between, this is my someday.

This is my return to the blog.

Why is a 24 year old man with a just turned 17 year old teenage girl?

# 2

He looks like JJ!

# 3

@O: It;’s called pedophila

# 4

jesus that picture

# 5

Uhm she looks beyond older then 17 ….on that pic she looks atleast 25

# 6

She looks 24 and he looks 17

# 7

Perhaps he is 17 and she is (at least 24). Either way its wrong. Race traitors both of them unless its a PR-ed relationship and she’s just another tool for promoting interbreeding.

# 8

I think they’re a sweet couple. He obviously supports her and is a kind guy. I personally don’t see a problem with the age difference. Lorde is extremely mature for her age and they seem to get along perfectly.

Did you seriously say “race traitors”? First of all, we’re all a part of the HUMAN RACE. If you’re talking about ethnicity, then when did it become a betrayal on your own ethnicity to love another person for who they are? Seriously, you’re using the term “interbreeding” too as if they’re animals. Let them love who they want just like you wouldn’t expect any restrictions put on your life.

I don’t see what’s wrong with that 7 years between them. it’s not over 10 years or even more. and it wouldn’t be a problem if it is. love is the most important things. and she’s mature. they both know what they are doing.

Her chinless wonder boyfriend is as ugly as trhey come. Ditch this freak Lordes and stick with your own kind.

stick with your own kind? And what would that be? The racism in this post is unbelievable. But, I can certainly see what ‘your kind’ is.

jared leto should publish a book of his inspiring quotes

@eL: I’m sure a lot of pedophiles have tried to use this excuse .

This guy looks way too younger than lorde and a boy must always be older than a girl in a couple at that age. One must be very unfortunate to think of a pedophile on this pic.

seriously! @ 03/29/2014 at 12:19 am

@xyzc: WTF was that comment …. you seem like a total douche bag .. even worst a racist pig !

So being racists makes yall better persons huh?

@Elle: you do know “Pedophilia” is only one-way, right? so I don’t think the word can be used in this case.

No matter what happens that’s Lorde’s beeswax,not y’alls.
I personally honor Lorde for her success and her albums that just came out,”The Love Club EP”and “Pure Heroine”.And another reason why i like her a lot,is because that she’s humble and not the type that brags about the fame she’s got.She’s very laidback and very cool about herself.Self-esteem goes into tat as well.And what”s all this about her dating an Asian guy? Look if you need to get over yourselves,just listen to Ke$ha’s ‘Love Into The Light’ for extra help,got it? Then for all you haters,(that’s right,I said it,yolo for sure)
who say,”Oh,you date your own kind.”
That’s like saying we should always listen to Justin Bieber every day.(Not to mention that,but that is still a controversy though)Look,why do we have different genres of songs everywhere? Duh! We love to mix.
And by the way,she’s not the only one.Many pop stars date different ethnicities or races these days,or so to say here. But that’s okay.
Love is not about the race,it’s the affection people show towards each other in a relationship like this.
Quit worrying about what guy she dates (plus her age) and just listen to the beautiful talent this young lady has for us here. Btw I’m an Alternative artist myself,and I don’t hate on pop stars. The one thing I know is,
‘If you can’t sing,you’re not my type.’
That’s all we’re supposed to care about.
Not nothing else.
There.
My work is done.
Argue against that,haters.
The Alternative Music Industry rules and you can’t stop us now.
