Lorde put herself on the music map last year with her hit single, Royals. The 17 year-old songstress is redefining pop music, as she doesn’t believe in selling herself out to make it in the industry. She’s not like her fellow pop divas Miley Cyrus or Selena Gomez. Lorde has a very unique style and she doesn’t believe in objectifying herself to gain fans. Time magazine named her one of the most influential teenagers in the world and said that she was “forging her own path.” So let’s learn a little more about this pioneering pop star!
1. Her Real Name
Lorde was actually born with five names: Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor. She received her stage name, Lorde, after being given a faux-aristocratic title by a television show. Lorde can legally call herself “Lady Lorde” by deed poll, similar to the “Lord of the manor” (signifying land ownership), but it is not a true aristocratic title.
