rapid rise to fame, thanks to her massively successful debut, Pure Heroine
may have gained her worldwide notoriety, but at 17, she's not getting the respect she feels she deserves. In the October issue of Elle magazine, Lorde admits she's over being treated like child and wants the world to know she can bite off more than people think she can chew.
"A lot of times when people meet me, they'll definitely try to make me feel young or inexperienced. Like, 'It's all taken care of,' she said. "I'm, like, constantly scanning myself to see if I'm some corporate executive version of a teenager. I've developed something of a fearsome reputation. People know that if you talk down to me, I will roll my eyes or whatever."
Eye-rolls or not, the underage phenom says her attitude is bound to change the older she gets. "I have definitely learned how to be flexible," she admits. "Before, I would just be like, 'F**k it.' I have such a strong idea of what is cool and great for me. But I am a teenager. My brain is, like, a certain age. Everyone is talking about you. You have to learn not to care as much."
