Lorde has discussed meeting David Bowie, claiming that he told her her music "felt like listening to tomorrow".

The New Zealand teenager, who released debut album 'Pure Heroine' in 2013, met Bowie in November at Tilda Swinton's 53rd birthday party at New York's Museum Of Modern Art.

Speaking about the occasion with Click this link hereRookie, Lorde says: "To have someone like that tell you that listening to you felt like listening to tomorrow. I was like… I could creatively die and just be happy forever. I never tell anyone about that experience, because it meant so much to me, and I feel like it would be dulled or something if I always talked about it in magazines or whatever. It’s my special thing."

She continues, "It was super cute, though—for some reason we were holding hands and just staring into each other’s eyes and talking, and I was like, This is David Bowie's hand, what am I doing? It was insane. A beautiful moment."

Earlier this month Lorde warned people against calling her a "teen hottie". The New Zealand star revealed that she takes particular offence at that term, but insisted she's not anti-sex.
