Lorde: “I Don’t See A Female Without Clothing As A Terrible Influence.”


Lorde has some thoughts on Rihanna and on women who dress provocatively, and unlike Bindi Irwin, who thinks girls should “cover up”, Lorde’s got no problem with it. Here’s what she had to say, via Huffington Post:

“She’s [Rihanna] just magnetic. You can’t not look at Rihanna. I would buy anything Rihanna sold me,” she said. “The way Rihanna embodies being a sexual woman feels very ‘her.’ I don’t think she wears Swarovski crystals to please other people. I think she wears them because she’s like: ‘I feel amazing. You better look. I’m obviously the best-looking thing in this room.’ She’s so fearless and confident. I just love her.”

“People should stop worrying about their daughters,” she continued. “I don’t see a female without clothing as a terrible influence. There are worse things. Shooting people. Glorifying violence …”

Do you think Lorde has her priorities straight? Not that we’re pitting the two against each other, but which one’s views are you more likely to agree with on the topic: Lorde’s or Bindi Irwin’s?

I gotta say, I think Rihanna’s fashion sense is just awful, but hey, maybe that’s just me.

Lorde goes glam on the cover of ‘Teen Vogue’

lorde vogue 10

Lorde may not be your typical fashion magazine cover star, but she does look pretty glam on the May cover of Teen Vogue. In the issue, she talks about how she’s feminine, sure, but she’s also a giant tomboy and loves wearing boy clothes.

When it comes to her usual appearance, Lorde is the first to admit that her style is on the plainer side. Although she understands there are “expectations in [the] industry about looking a certain way,” Lorde tells the mag she prefers her tomboy look.

“I am feminine,” she tells the mag, “but I really love dressing in boys’ clothes too. I guess that’s why I get labeled as ‘the grumpy girl,’ because I don’t play into that.”

Nice. Personally, I think the whole idea of “boys clothes” and all of that has gone down the drain in recent years because the tomboy look IS actually the height of fashion and has been feminized and all of that, but I guess I’m picking up what she’s putting down.

I know I’ve said before that I find Lorde occasionally obnoxious, but the more I think about it, I do really appreciate the alternative she provides for the teen girls that look up to her. She’s pretty great, in that sense.

Lorde is obsessed with Instagram


Surprise! Teenagers like social media!! Lorde may be a worldwide superstar now, but she’s still a 17-year-old who’s obsessed with her phone – and in particular, with scrolling down her Instagram feed to see cute pictures of puppies.

“I’m kind of cruising Instagram every hour or so, it’s the one I check back to when I’m bored.”

So… like everyone else does, then? Seriously, who doesn’t pick up their phone and scroll down their social network of choice when nothing’s going on?

Instagram’s probably my choice, as well, just because I’m a visual person and people talk too much bullshit on Twitter. Tumblr is a good time waster, as well. Let’s use Lorde as a discussion catalyst!

What's the best social network to waste time on?
