This is so sad.
We wonder what it would've been like to grow up in New Zealand!
Lorde hasn't been one to hide her personal life away from the world.
The 17-year-old singer posted a blog post about celebrating her birthday all by her lonesome!
So, we think it's safe to say there's nothing that holds this girl back from speaking her mind about her peers or sharing with the world what she's up to!
In this VEVO Lift video, the Royals singer showed the world what life was like in her home country of New Zealand!
It's a suburb filled with pretty places and lots of beaches, what more could one ask for!?
Ch-ch-check out her bubbly hometown (above)!!
