The Lorde giveth, and the Lorde taketh away.
Believe it or not, it's been nearly three years since Lorde skyrocketed to the top of the charts with her debut album Pure Heroine, so it's natural that some fans are starting to get impatient.
Unfortunately, it seems as though the 19-year-old is hearing too many people complain about an eventual follow-up album… because she just took all of her frustrations out on one Instagram fan!

Like most people tired of listening to Royals on repeat, IG user gabatron9 made the seemingly harmless mistake of questioning the Kiwi's artistry on Tuesday, saying:
"Do you think we will ever get another album or should we just give up on you as an artist?"
Little harsh, Gab.
Still, we highly doubt Gabby ever expected to get a response from Lorde herself… especially one directly calling her out!
Well, that's exactly what happened when the Grammy winner sternly wrote back on Wednesday, saying:
"Give up on me if you want to! I'm an artist, I write a record when I have enough special stories to tell, and it's all me, every melody every lyric, not some team who just start the machine up every eighteen months like clockwork. The record is written, we're in the production stages now. I've worked like a dog for a year making this thing great for you guys."
So that means we are getting new music soon after all?!?

While we don't necessarily agree with gabatron's rather rude methods… you can't argue with her results!
Are U at all excited for a Pure Heroine follow-up??
