I remember being a teenager and looking at some 30-something and thinking, you don’t get me, you don’t get us, you’re time is passed, old man. I didn’t really think like a cheaply written multicultural gang member in the movies, but we had our own definition of cool and we were pretty certain the adults didn’t get it. I can’t tell if Lorde is teen cool or just trying too hard to be cool. I know a million girls want to be just like her which should probably assist in declining teen pregnancy rates. She can actually sing which sets her apart from anywhere between most and all of her counterparts. Since God did not intend for people to have too many gifts, he made the talented artists awkward looking and clumsy. If Lorde doesn’t die in a workplace accident, she should go on to be a serious musician issuing tons of annoying social and political statements. Somebody get more steps.
