There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

Gurlfriend takes no shiz from ANYONE! Not even a higher up from her record label!
But, wait, the reason isn't because of a divalicious attitude, it's one that we can totally get behind!
Seeing as Lorde is only 17, people tend to associate age with inexperience, so they tend to look down on her for that and she is NOT into letting that happen.
'A lot of times when people meet me, they'll definitely try to make me feel young or inexperienced. Like, ‘It's all taken care of.' Teenagers are such a discerning group of people. They'll immediately sniff out anything that feels contrived. I'm, like, constantly scanning myself to see if I'm some corporate executive version of a teenager. I've developed something of a fearsome reputation. People know that if you talk down to me, I will roll my eyes or whatever.'
You go girl! Stand up for yourself!
But it seems that because she shows that you CAN do big things being so young, fans tell her how much she inspires them!
'People have told me that I've helped them feel confident, like they can say things they want to say. They can talk about feminism in class without people calling them a lesbian. That's so amazing that I can make someone feel like that.'
Well, gurlfriend is a pretty inspiring young singer! She inspires us!
We love it! Keep on doing you, gurl!
