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.

Probable one-hit-wonder Lorde took a swipe at the teen creatures manufactured in the Disney star machine. In an interview with GQ she was asked if she worried about getting famous at such a young age. She said that because she wasn’t raised by some fame hungry stage mom on the set of some Disney Channel abomination she’s much more grounded than the Miley Cyrii and Amanda Bynes of this world. She says,
“The difference between those kids and me is that I grew up completely normally and went to parties and had that experience. I am way less inclined to be like, ‘Look! I’m fucking mental!’”
Lorde has already had a beef with Selena Gomez when she called her “anti-feminist”. That statement doesn’t make any sense. How can Selena be anti-feminist if she was in a lesbian relationship with Justin Bieber for two years? Lorde makes a fair point about not being raised in the Disney/Nickelodeon child star factory. The Mouse tends to fuck up kids big time. The track record of destruction is pretty indisputable. It also helps that Lorde is from New Zealand. That place is all Hobbits and fairies and if you need to bang a sheep to shake off the blues, nobody feels the need to label you.
