New Zealand wunderkind Lorde is about to take Australia by storm after wrapping up the European leg of her world tour.
The seventeen-year old shot to world fame last year with her hit 'Royals', which topped the charts in a number of countries for several months. Her debut album ‘Pure Heroine’ was released in September, but she says she has no intention of being one herself:
“The concept of being a role model is a lot to carry,” she says. “I am young enough that I am probably going to screw something up at some point in a really bad way and no one is going to want me as their role model anymore and I am going to feel bad. But that being said, I think it is awesome that young people and young girls are inspired by what I am doing because it’s cool to have like young, inspiring role models and I know I had those when I was growing up.”
