Lorde Turned Off By Media Attention
Lorde is NOT a fan of the media attention she’s been getting from the paparazzi ever since her song “Royals” shattered records.
But it might have been her recent win at the Grammys that cemented her as a celebrity par excellence. And Lorde is not happy.
The 17-year-old took to Twitter Tuesday afternoon (Jan. 28) to voice her disdain for the paparazzi, fame and all the “frightening” attention she’s been getting:
“nz media almost pushed over myself and my family at the airport this morning in order to get their shots. bit of a sad welcome if i’m honest” — Lorde (@lordemusic) January 28, 2014
“i understand that people of note are supposedly fair game for everyone to photograph and film but that doesn’t make it acceptable” — Lorde (@lordemusic) January 28, 2014
“i’m beginning to get used to my image as a public commodity, and the fact that I’m getting used to it frightens me” — Lorde (@lordemusic) January 28, 2014
“there is a difference between attn from fans, which i love, and the constant, often lecherous gaze that i’m subjected to in this industry” — Lorde (@lordemusic) January 28, 2014
“i know that success comes with a price tag. it just sucks when you see that in your tiny home country where you previously felt safe.” — Lorde (@lordemusic) January 28, 2014
