Lorde Fangirled Over Hilary Duff Being at Her Concert!

Lorde gets wrapped up in a big red bow for the cover of Teen Vogue‘s May 2014 issue.

Here is what the 17-year-old “Team” singer had to share with the mag:

On Hilary Duff being at her recent 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?”

On her fashion style: “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 social networking: “I like Twitter because it’s a good direct link to people. You just reach out to someone you like and say, ‘Follow me please, and then we can talk.’ I really like Instagram as well. It’s a good one, very simple. I’m also on Facebook and Tumblr.”

On her new life: “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.”

Lorde Performs with Nirvana at Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony!

Lorde poses backstage at the 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony held on Thursday (April 10) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.

There were four women that joined the living members of Nirvana on stage to perform with them and help induct them into the Hall of Fame.

Lorde was the youngest of the women and performed “All Apologies.” Joan Jett sang “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” Sonic Youth vocalist Kim Gordon took on “Aneurysm,” and St. Vincent performed “Lithium.” The ladies were joined by bassist Krist Novoselic, drummer Dave Grohl, and guitarist Pat Smear.

Something interesting to note is that Lorde was born two years after the band’s lead singer Kurt Cobain passed away.

FYI: Lorde is wearing a Vionnet tuxedo.

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.”

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.”
