She may still be a teen, but Lorde is one of the leading ladies of mainstream music right now, and scored the cover of the 2014 October edition of Elle magazine. The fall fashion inspired photoshoot featured the 17-year-old singer with natural barely-there make-up, big hair and sleek black coats with furry trim. She dished to mag ons taying authentic in the music biz.
“A lot of times when people meet me, they’ll definitely try to make me feel young or inexperienced. Like, ‘It’s all taken care of’. Teenagers are such a discerning group of people. They’ll immediately sniff out anything that feels contrived. I’m, like, constantly scanning myself to see if I’m some corporate executive version of a teenager. I’ve developed something of a fearsome reputation. People know that if you talk down to me, I will roll my eyes or whatever.”
The October edition of Elle hits stands September 23rd, 2014.
