Since breaking into the spotlight last year, Lorde has repeatedly asserted that monetary success, accolades, and popularity don’t rank particularly high on her list of career goals, and it seems no amount of them can shake the NZ pop songstress’ dogged individualism and left-of-field attitude.
Speaking recently to Stylist (via Gigwise) she explained that she’s not particularly fussed if her sophomore effort is as big as her epic 2013 debut, Pure Heroine. “To be honest, if the next record I make is really cool and I like it, I can handle it being really big and I can handle it being small.”
“I have to play it every two years so if I love it that’s okay,” she added. The Tennis Court singer’s debut was so massive that the music industry has seemingly run out of accolades to bestow upon the young talent, with Billboard recently awarding her flagship single Royals with Top Rock Song.
She also took home Top New Artist and performed her single Tennis Court during the Billboard Music Awards broadcast. Lorde also recently made headlines after railing against what she viewed as the two-faced nature of the music media, garnering support from Iggy Azalea and Grimes.
