Happy Birthday, Lorde!
As of today, the teen sensation is no longer a teen, and the Yellow Flicker Beat singer is celebrating the big 2-0 with an open letter on Facebook updating us on all things Lorde.
She’s explaining why we haven’t seen too much of her recently, saying:
“I made a very deliberate choice to withdraw for a little while from a public life. I haven’t had my hair or makeup done in a year, the free handbags dried up LONG ago, and the paparazzi at the airport are almost always for someone else. And let me tell you, as much as I love being full noise album cycle girl, it’s been a motherf*cking joy.”
Interesting! All celebs should try this out — as long as they come back soon!
The Kiwi phenom also teased her next album, which we should FINALLY be getting more info on soon. She wrote:
“Writing Pure Heroine was my way of enshrining our teenage glory, putting it up in lights forever so that part of me never dies, and this record – well, this one is about what comes next.
I want nothing more than to spill my guts RIGHT NOW about the whole thing – I want you to see the album cover, pore over the lyrics (the best I’ve written in my life), touch the merch, experience the live show. I can hardly stop myself from typing out the name. I just need to keep working a while longer to make it as good as it can be. You’ll have to hold on. The big day is not tomorrow, or even next month realistically, but soon. I know you understand.”
Soon. Guess we’ll have to take it.
