1. You’ve heard “Royals” about 500 times and you’re still addicted.
2. Her hair is epic.
3. I mean, seriously unreal.
She hasn’t cut it in FOUR YEARS.
5. She’s only 16.
As in, she was born in 1996. As in, what the hell am I doing with my life.
6. And she’s already cooler than you’ll ever be.
It’s depressing, I know.
7. Rest assured, she appreciates the plight of her fellow youngsters.
8. And is always keeping it real.
9. She’s a hypnotic performer.
Can’t. Look. Away.
10. With truly amazing stage presence.
12. Look, she can’t help it that she’s a total badass.
13. But Lorde is also chill as hell. And good with animals.
14. She already has major celebrity endorsements.
Vanessa Hudgens is ON IT. Jimmy Fallon will catch up eventually.
15. She’s legitimately excited about her success, which is pretty refreshing.
16. And she has a good grasp of pop music history.
17. Lorde speaks her mind through her lyrics.
Which are scary mature. Who is that self-aware in high school?
