Lorde: 'I'm Proof' That There Are Few Limits on What Can Be Achieved

Lorde glitters in Dolce&Gabbana on the cover of Fashion magazine’s May 2014 issue, on newsstands April 14.

Here’s what the 17-year-old Grammy winner had to share with the mag:

On kids today: “I think young people have changed the way we view pop culture…we now have this discerning power. We all have Tumblers, we curate imagery every day. We can sniff out bullsh*t faster.”

On industry stereotypes: “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.”

On accomplishing anything early: “There are very few limits on what can be achieved by anyone of any age, living anywhere and of any race, because of the web…I’m proof of that.”
