New Zealand songstress Lorde has opened up about her love of rap music and revealed she's a fan of Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar.
The 16-year-old star, whose track Royals is currently sitting at no. 1 in the US Billboard chart, touched on several subjects in a new video released today (October 10) as part of her VEVO Lift campaign.
The young singer dished: "I love rap music because it just makes me feel way cooler than I actually am."
Lorde - whose real name is Ella Yelich-O'Connor - also spoke about an occasion where she met hip hop heavyweight Kanye West.
She revealed: "I've always really liked Kanye. When I met him on Jools Holland he was wearing a grill on his lower teeth and I had this barely suppressed desire to rub the grill. We're ok, I didn't rub the grill."
Lorde added that Swimming Pools (Drank) star Kendrick Lamar "is really cool."
She added: "He's great, I really like that album and he was awesome on stage as well."
Lorde's debut album Pure Heroine was released on September 30.
