Five Things We Love About Lorde
1. Her Name!
Not only do we think that ‘Lorde’ is a super sweet stage name (I predict a 100% increase in the number of babies named Lorde in the coming years), but Lorde’s actual name, Ella, is beautiful. Talk about a win-win.
2. Give It Away Now
From releasing her debut EP The Love Club for free, to helping raise funds for the Philippines Red Cross and charities in her native New Zealand, Lorde knows that it’s better to give than receive.
3. She’s History in the Making
It seems that Lorde is setting standards and breaking records every day. She’s the first solo artist from New Zealand to land at the top spot on the US Hot 100, the first female in 17 years to have number one song on the US Billboard Alternative Songs chart, the third youngest person to ever win a Grammy, and the first New Zealand artist to enjoy four songs in the Top 20 of the New Zealand charts. And we’re just scratching the surface with those.
4. She Has Her Own Style
While the last three decades have seen outfits getting smaller and smaller in the pop world, Lorde plays by her own rules, setting an example of positive body image for her young fans. The fashion world is taking notice, with Lorde scoring her own make-up line inspired by her signature dark lipstick.
5. She’s Not Scared of the ‘F’ Word
Feminists everywhere have been cringing with each new celeb using their huge social platform to denounce feminism and spout inaccurate statements. It hurts our hearts and doesn’t fare well for youngsters who have yet to be properly informed on what it means to be a feminist. Members of the Fem club breathed a sigh of relief when the young singer from New Zealand declared herself a feminist. Go Lorde!

Look, we all love Game Of Thrones, but we do have to admit that it can be a little gory at times. That’s why we’re so excited that our chums from pipocaVFX have found a solution for those of us with weak hearts. These pixelated re-enactments take all those “Holy crap, I can’t watch” moments […]
