You can take that allowance and shove it, Mom and Dad! Because 17-year-old Lorde just signed a new publishing deal that’s worth some $ERIOUS cash!

With her hit single Royals rising all the way to #1, it’s no surprise that there was an all out bidding war between companies to win the singer’s signature on their dotted line!

In the end, Lorde went with boutique house Songs Music Publishing, giving them the rights to license all of her music, in a deal that is reported to have paid Lorde up to $2.5 million!!!

Woah! Who knew singing about not having any money could make you a millionaire!

Songs Music also has deals with Nelly, Bright Eyes, Diplo and The Weeknd. Lorde’s manager Tim Youngson explained how that list of in-house talent really helped her decide on who to sign with.

Youngson said:

"Even before signing her [Sounds Music] were bringing her options for collaborations and introducing her to other songwriters. The decision wasn't made on money.”

Mmm, maybe not but there’s no discounting the dough our little Kiwi just made!

Live that fantasy, gurl!!!

    Good for her making it big, I hope she says famous because even though she's a bit bullheaded I think its finally great to see a pop star with her own opinions. And another thing I like about her is she is probably the only pop star right now who doesn't look like a barbie doll and I think that's great because it gives young girl someone realistic to look up to!

    GIVE HER A FEW MONTHS. SHE WILL LOOK JUST LIKE ALL OF THE OTHER POP STARS. ALSO, PEREZ I BELIEVE GOOD CHARLOTTE WROTE ABOUT NOT HAVING ANY MONEY AND NOW THEY ARE THE TYPICAL RICH CELEBRITY.

    2.4 million = about 400,000 after all is said and done. It's chump change.

    This little goth-looking girl should show a little respect to those who are above her in the music industry. No one is paying her for her opinion, she's being paid to sing. Now stfu and sing little girl. :)

    hope she's not another king of leon sellout who starts making shitty albums once they make it big. Please Lorde don't become an industry artist!
