Drinking a yard glass full of beer is a New Zealand tradition at 21st birthdays.
Despite her wild antics plan, the singer told Australia’s The Project, she still considers herself to be a bit of a loser. “I think that I maybe am five per cent prettier (these days) I would estimate, but apart from that I think I’m still a giant loser. So it’s all good, really,” she added.
Lorde also explained how in some ways she is braver now than she has ever been before.
She added: ”I think in some ways I was braver when I was 15 and in some ways I’m braver than I’ve ever been now. A lot of people have said to me how this album is emotionally laid bare, I think. That sort of bravery I don’t necessarily know that I had five years ago.”
Despite recently releasing her second album ‘Melodrama’, Lorde recently revealed that she has started work on her third album.
This was in response to a fan account who highlighted how often ‘Melodrama’ mentions dancing, citing examples like “[dancing] on the light up floor”, “[dancing] with the truth” and “[dancing] in my storm” in several songs across the album.
Replying to the fan account’s tweet, Lorde wrote: “Wow lol I didn’t realise it was at this level”, and in another tweet she added: “Right now I literally live to dance and I’m so proud to have written my thesis on it this time – it’s religion/therapy/purgatory/heaven.”
Lorde’s second album ‘Melodrama’ recently hit Number One on the album charts in America, Australia, Canada and her home country, New Zealand.
