“Weird Al” Yankovic Parodies Lorde With His New Song & Video For “Foil”

“Weird Al” Yankovic! Still a thing! And he has a new album of relatively funny parody songs called Mandatory Fun. Every day for eight days leading up to the album’s release, Weird Al has been releasing a new music video, and today’s is admittedly not to be missed. “Foil” is a parody of Lorde’s “Royals&#8221…

So Rad: 4 Women Fronted Nirvana At Last Night’s Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony

This is awesome. Last night, Nirvana was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, just days after the 20 year anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death from suicide, and when the remaining members of the band took the stage to perform, they were joined by four female rockers filling Cobain’s shoes/vocals. Joan Jett, St. Vincent, Kim…

James Lowe, AKA Lorde’s Boyfriend, Pens Open Letter About Fame

Jared Leto said that fame doesn’t change you, it changes everyone around you. While I’m not the centre of attention here (and fuck, the times I have, it’s never been fun), I do become aware of the people around me and their transparency. They fail to hide it. I’ve experienced being a target of the…

Dumb Radio Host Asks Lorde If She & Taylor Swift Are A Lesbian Couple

After they were photographed hanging out again, a radio host asked Lorde if she and Taylor Swift are “together,” before backtracking, “Not together as in lesbians, I’m not talking about ‘Ellen’ together.” Lorde, bless her, shot back, “What do you mean you’re not talking about ‘Ellen’ together? Is there something wrong with lesbians?” [Daily

35 Milestones Of Female Friendship

Taylor Swift and Lorde have been spending quite a bit of time together — shopping, frolicking barefoot on the beach, wearing matching outfits — prompting many onlookers (including us) to refer to them as BFFs. But let’s be honest: as any BFF-havin’ lady knows, wearing matching outfits is only, like, level 3 out of 300…

Lorde & Taylor Swift Are Just A Couple Of BFFs Shopping Together Like OMG

I know everyone is probably just assuming that all Taylor and Lorde have to talk about is boys and how anti-feminist Selena Gomez’s music is, and they probably did discuss those things while trying on hats and lipstick. But apparently* they were overheard discussing the thinness of “True Detective”‘s female characters and how sick to…

Lorde’s Style Icons Are David Bowie & Grace Jones, Of Course

“The kind of clothes that I’ve found I like to wear over the past year and six months have all been things that make me feel powerful and strong. I wear a lot of pants. I wear a lot of long, structured dresses.”

Watch This Throwback Of Lorde Singing With Her Middle School Band

What were you doing when you were 12? Most days, I was at the mall with my friends trying on too-big formal dresses for “someday” and browsing Build-A-Bear. Lorde, on the other hand, was already acting like a rockstar. This video of her performing with Extreme, her former band at Belmont Intermediate School in New Zealand…

Lorde’s Birth Certificate Has Hit The Internet, And Yes, She’s Actually 17

A copy of Lorde’s birth certificate has been presented to the world this week, courtesy of The Hairpin. The form proves that Lorde really is 17, which will no doubt anger the cult of “Lorde birth truthers” that believe she’s lying about her age and is actually much older.

I suppose there’s a…

Watch This: What If Lorde’s “Royals” Was About Adulthood?

Lorde’s megahit song, “Royals,” has been stuck in all of our heads for months now. The ode to teenage disillusionment struck a nerve with one audience in particular: disillusioned adults, who are less concerned with seeing a diamond in the flesh and more concerned with, you know, paying for health insurance. Comedian Molly Dworsky put…

Lorde graced Reddit with her presence over the weekend to do a little Q&A with her fans in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session. She seemed so normal. And cool. Like she could be our real-life friend. Okay, that’s just wishful thinking.

Halloween Inspiration Board: Lorde

Twerkin’ like Miley not your style this Halloween? Go the alternative route by channeling your inner teenage witchy goth as Lorde, the rising star on the pop scene. Lorde has got a thing for black mesh body-con dresses, almost black makeup, and the kind of jewelry that’s likely been cleansed by some new agey priestess. Memorize the…

Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either.
