Lorde slams sexy celebs

Lorde

Lorde is "a feminist" so is bored with many of the shock tactics employed by today's female artists.

The 16-year-old singer has found fame around the world thanks to her pop track Royals, which is about how much she dislikes the lavish lifestyle many musician lust after.

The star has joined a growing number of artists who are tired of seeing shock tactics in the industry. Lady Gaga recently stripped naked at a show and Miley Cyrus is renowned for her sexy twerking, but Lorde thinks things have gone too far.

"I'm a feminist so certain things about pop music I find frustrating. I think pop is scarily powerful. There are a lot of shock tactics these days: people trying to outdo each other, which will probably culminate in two people f**king on stage at the Grammys," she told Q magazine. "I try to keep my blinkers on and focus on making music."

Lorde has a high-profile fan in the shape of Kanye West, who told her how much he admired her lyrics when he saw her at a TV show. She responded by saying they were the "exact opposite" of many of his messages.

She isn't always so outspoken though, admitting she often considers things for far too long before offering an opinion.

"I think way too hard about everything. So I'm at a party but I'm thinking about what it means to be at a party," she laughed.
