Lorde happy with her own style

Lorde has defended her tomboy style

Lorde has insisted she is happy with her tomboy style, revealing she doesn't play into other people's expectations.

The Royals singer explained to Teen Vogue that she dresses for herself.

"There are a lot of expectations in this industry about looking a certain way and having a certain kind of appeal," she said.

"I am feminine, but I really love dressing in boys' clothes too.

"I guess that's why I get labelled as 'the grumpy girl', because I don't play into that."

Lorde, 17, has rocketed to fame in the past year, enjoying commercial and critical success and nabbing a string of music awards.

But she admitted she is still trying to get used to her newfound stardom and success.

"Living in New Zealand, you don't get these experiences. I spent so much time in my room before," she said. "My life is so wild right now. For me to be able to do something I really enjoy and for that to get me out in the world - to South America, to here, to London - every day I kick myself, I'm so lucky."

Leo:

Rebelling against outmoded conventions is liberating. Usually, you're comfortable with tradition. In this situation, you realise the old ways are a liability. Stuffy rules and regulations are stopping a large amount of people from accessing resources and services. It's up to you to sound the alarm. When the powers that be realise you mean business, they'll work hard to update the regulations. You'll make several new friends after getting involved with this cause.More
