Lorde’s 17th Birthday Is Today! Here Are 17 Of Her Fiercest Famous Quotes!

lorde birthday post

Little Lorde is growing up almost as fast as she’s becoming famous!

The girl wonder from down under is turning 17 today and to mark the Royal occasion, we’ve dug up some of her most memorable quotes from the past year!

Lorde may only be a teenager but she speaks her mind like someone who’s been around for ages! She’s got an opinion and she’s never too shy to share it!

And quite frankly, we love her for it!

Lorde took a lot of heat after calling out Selena Gomez for making music that’s anti-feminist:

selena gomez lorde

"I love pop music on a sonic level. But I’m a feminist and the theme of her song [Come & Get It] is, ‘When you’re ready come and get it from me.’ I’m sick of women being portrayed this way."

Then she shared some thoughts on Taylor Swift being too perfect:

taylor swift lorde

“Taylor Swift is so flawless, and so unattainable, and I don’t think it’s breeding anything good in young girls. I’m never going to be like Taylor Swift.”

She apologized afterwards, saying:

“I am very, very new to this whole thing. I will probably never be the kind of role model for my fans that [Taylor] is for hers. I admire her very much for this reason. Basically, this is an apology for not thinking too hard before I speak."

Lorde's star is rising fast but she said she’ll never end up like Britney Spears or Amy Winehouse:

britney spears lorde

"Six months ago, no-one knew who I was and now fans chase my car. But I'm never going to change or let fame get the better of me. I'll never go off the rails like Britney or do an Amy - because my upbringing was so normal.”

Nor will she ever twerk like Miley Cyrus:

miley lorde 2

“[Twerking is] something I'd never do - I wouldn't feel confident with my arse out. But if Miley feels comfortable doing it herself then it's no one's business to judge. If she wants to appear in her bra and panties then it's cool. Having been in an institution like Disney all her life, it's important she has fun. For now, it's not for me. It's not natural.”

She’s not exactly a fan of Justin Bieber:

justin bieber lorde

“I feel like the influences that are there in the industry for people my age, like Justin Bieber or whatever, are just maybe not a very real depiction of what it’s like to be a young person.”

Or Lana Del Rey’s lyrics:

lana del rey lorde

“I listened to that Lana Del Rey record and the whole time I was just thinking it’s so unhealthy for girls to be listening to, you know, ‘I’m nothing without you.’ This sort of shirt-tugging, desperate, ‘don’t leave me’ stuff. That’s not a good thing for young girls, even young people, to hear."

But she does relate to Kanye West:

kanye west lorde 1

"When I meet a bunch of girls my age, I find that stressful as I'm just a high school student myself. I feel intimidated by them. But meeting people like Kanye West - people who are into what you do and understand about having a vision - I can relate to.”

She even wanted to touch Kanye's grill:

kanye west grill lorde

He’s a really mellow dude - super relaxed. He had this big old grill, and I wanted to touch it, but I restrained myself.”

She threw a diss at all of the Disney stars:

demi crying lorde

"The difference between those kids and me is that I grew up completely normally and went to parties and had that experience. I am way less inclined to be like, 'Look! I'm fucking mental!’”

And gave some MAJOR shade to David Guetta after he wanted to collaborate with her:

david guetta lorde

“No! F*ck no! He’s so gross!”

She does want to write songs for Rihanna and Ellie Goulding though:

rihanna lorde

"Rihanna would be fun to write for because she's done everything. And I'd love to write for — or with — Ellie Goulding, actually."

And she’d rather have Beyoncé as a mom than Kim Kardashian:

beyonce lorde

"Oh. I would rather be the daughter of Beyoncé and Jay Z because, if Beyoncé is your mom? No words."

This year’s VMAs performances had Lorde making some AH-Mazing predictions:

miley lorde

“There are a lot of shock tactics these days. People trying to outdo each other, which will probably culminate in two people f*cking onstage at the Grammys. I try to keep blinkers on and focus on making music.”

And she had some bittersweet excitement after hitting #1 on iTunes:

lorde miley fans

"#1 on US itunes. even if it lasts an hour i feel HAPPY. downside is all these miley fans telling me they're gonna stab my rotting corpse.”

There are some topics she says she’ll NEVER comment on as a pop star:

lorde long name

“If there’s one thing you’d never catch me doing it’s commenting on someone’s appearance, sexuality, race in that way. So sad and cruel."

But she will always stand by her opinions!:

lorde final quote

"I have pretty strong morals and opinions being in pop music, and I can't help but express those, which I think people appreciate. I mean, I don't think I say anything that isn't backed up. Most of the time I will stand by things that I've said."

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LORDE!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LORDE!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LORDE!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LORDE!!!

    she's just some random 17 year old with an over played "hit" song, strange voice and "know-it-all" attitude.

    I can't stand her, she's a megalomaniac brat. This does not show talent it only shows stupidity. Her mother should wrtite her a poem about humility.



  7. 7

    I agree with her about some things, but unfortunately her opinions do not come from a place of experience and caring, they come from immature arrogance. It will catch up with her - she has a lot to learn.

    Moreover she has the voice of a door's hinge and she's not even cute to look at. Sorry, just trash.

    Anyone finding that Kanye West is a balanced spirit and any one who suck of Jay-z clan's ass deserves the honorary title of Douche Bag.



  10. 10

    She seems very dull, obsessed with pop culture and overly focused on others, instead of having tact. Her music features cheap generic beats, and the fact that she worships Beyonce instead of, say, an artist like Kate Bush shows she's yet another hack. Next!

    happy birthday to a very NORMAL girl…

    EVERYTHING SHE SAID IS TRUE
    Selena is a whorish slut who clings to fame taylor is a desperate but pretty nightmare britney did go mental

    she speaks the truth and gets crucified for it i find it REFRESHING that shes not giving canned answers and telling lies . shes given just a couple interviews and people dissect it and try and crucify her when shes barely out the gate i think its JELOUSY by the other UNTALENTED SLUTTY girls talk about MEANESS AND SELFISHNESS they would rather wave around their slutty twats than learn to sing well like she can ..

    TEAM LORDE and yes she does remind me of kate bush a bit jut the originality that she infuses in her work…

    Self righteous little troll doll. her music was good for maybe 2 songs and now they all sound the same. not to mention she has been on the scene for 10 minutes and she is dissing veterans. Go back to New Zealand you talentless brat

    Re: rosebud99 – kinda like you, whatsup w you ppls infatutaion with hating things? just shut the fuck up if u dont like it. I respect her more than i do the average 17 yr old, shes really smart and wise for her age. of course she has alot to learn, shes only 17 & her whole life is ahead of her! which i cant say the same for u, u have alot to learn but unfortunatly ur old ugly and irrelevant

  22. MizzBooBoo says – reply to this

    Re: Shaun – shes been on the seen for 10 minutes yet all her music sounds the same? ur not even giving her a chance, complete contradiction.. not cute,

  23. @v@ says – reply to this


    23

    She's honest about what she thinks, politically correct or not. It's better than fawning ass kissing and certainly more interesting to listen to. This is a sixteen year old. She'll learn on the job.

    I liked her then she opened her mouth. She has one hit song you cant bash people who have been around a lot longer than you. Shes a bully and is going to be a one hit wonder and I cant wait to not hear about her mean self anymore

  25. Jane Ryan says – reply to this

    I appreciate her honestly though. In this type of industry where people kiss the "right" people's asses…I definitely respect it.

    I LOVE this girl! LOVE her! She speaks her mind and the truth and doesn't care what people think. It's the truth. This girl is young, beautiful, smart and classy. I heard her song Royals and loved it instantly. Then I saw her video and she actually had her clothes on, unlike many others that use their bodies to get famous. What a breath of fresh air. Her voice is mesmerizing, she is stunningly beautiful and doesn't feel the need to get naked to become famous. Just the role model girls need! I agree with everything she says because I have young daughters. When my daughters are old enough to listen to music, I don't want them listening to things like "come and get it" and other trash like that. There's not much clean music out there these days for young people and it's sad. I just love this chic. Keep doing your thing and don't ever be afraid to speak the truth.

    LORDE IS THE SHIT!

    all you haters are hating because she's calling your favourite stars out bahaha SHAME!

    speak your mind girl.. idiots will diss but intelligent folk will respect you for it

    Everyone, Lorde only speaks what everone else is thinking, she isn't self obsessed like everyone else in the music industry, you are calling her mean but really you are calling her awful names and bullying her on things that she can't change and she has said she doessn't judge people on. It makes me so upset to here you mean people calling her these things. and her lirics are meaningful and different unlike everyone else who is a little boring.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY LORDE!!!! :)

    you fuckers have to realize that we are from a country on the other side of the world where we go to lame house parties, wander the streets and live life like any normal teen should. those pop stars are entitled to do what they want and so is Lorde. An opionion is just that, shes not attacking the way people look or their race. We are humble people and if having an opinion is "not being humble" then fucken hell.. that's what keeps us as kiwis and her grounded and she has more than a level head on her shoulders than all of you ever would. Her attitude isn't "know it all".. she just knows what she likes and more importantly who she wants to be and where she wants go.. it's those disney and pop stars that haven't had time to grow and be themselves that are the ones who aren't level headed because they haven't had time to actually be a teen and grow up properly. Can anyone even relate to the lives of selena gomez and Miley?… ahhh nooo - next please



  30. 30

    Oi, one of those "know it all" feminist liberal kids..Notice how they are always so douchey and annoying?



  31. 31

    she is from NZ you dumb fucks! Down under is Australia!!

    There's nothing wrong with saying what you really think, but she's crossing the respect line. All of those artists hadn't say a word about her. If she wants to be respected she needs to respect the rest.

    Although Del Rey released The Paradise Edition of her debut Born to Die with 8 songs, there are about 2 dozen songs that did not make the E.P. Notable mentions include Paris, Damn You, and Go Go Dancer.

    Re: NoOne – I don't know what planet you live on, but all of the girls songs are good, she's loved around the world, has a head on her shoulders as she was raised by books and a mother that's a poet, and most importantly seems to have respect for herself. Let's only hope that she stays that way. We need more young women like her in the music industry. There are a few of them, but we need more. More Lordes, Katie Perry's and Demi Lovato's and less people that feel the need to lick hammers and swing naked from wrecking balls that corrupt the youth of the world! Thank God she has a brain and some sense about her and thank God she's not afraid to share her opinions. Truth hurts don't it. And P.S. I still don't see where any of her comments should have insulted anyone. And remember, she's answering questions asked of her. She's not just making these comments. People in the media are stirring the pot asking her these questions and she's just answering honestly! Leave the girl alone already!
