Lorde: "I Still Get Star Struck"
Singer also revealed she's inspired by Grace Jones...
Despite the phenomenal success of her debut single, Lordehas revealed she still gets star-struck.
“When I meet people whose music I really inspire, and they may be a little bit famous, I still get the little, ‘Holy crap! This person wants to talk to me’," she told Rolling Stone
The Team singer also admitted that her whirlwind rise to the top of the charts has been a “weird” experience.
Lorde explained: “It's a really weird thing to write a song like Royals, or a record like the record I wrote, and then go through something like this, which changes your entire world and way of living and changes what you do every day.”
“Do I really want to write a record which is like, I'm in my jacuzzi and I have so much money, and I'm sad?,” she added. “It'll be interesting to see how something like this manifests itself creatively for me.”
One way in which the 16-year old enjoys expressing her creativity is through her low-key outfit choices, so it’s surprising to learn that she’s inspired by flamboyant singer Grace Jones.
“I feel like I would just kind of take little pieces from someone else's style,” Lord explains. “I don't know how I ended up where I am.”
“Grace Jones was an influence, because I was like, ‘These shoulders! These pants! Girls can wear pants and be awesome.’ That's something I definitely embody.”
