Lorde has disassociated herself from Taylor Swift ‘s squad.
In an interview with Australia’s Sunrisethat aired Friday, co-host David Koch asked the New Zealand native about how she «coped» with befriending some of the people she’d idolized, like Beyoncé and Swift. «The second you think too hard about it, you’ll just go insane,» Lorde, 20, explained. «It’s best to be like, ‘We’re in wonderland and it’s just what happens around here.'»
«Also,» Lorde clarified, «I don’t hang out with these people at all.»
«Hang on!» Koch said. «You’re part of Taylor’s squad; all the magazines tell us!»
Lorde shook her head at the notion. «You know, you make friends in different places,» the singer said. «But I think for the most part I’m not, like, calling my idols for advice necessarily.»
Lorde appeared on Sunrise to promote Melodrama, her recently released sophomore album. «It’s very scary putting out a second album, but it could not have gone better,» she said of recording a follow-up to 2013’s Pure Heroine, which won two Grammys. «I feel really grateful.»
Lorde will kick off her 60-date world tour in Manchester Sept. 26, and her trek will end Apr. 15, 2018 in Nashville. «I am such a different performer than I was when I was 16. I feel like I can really lead a show with nothing but my body and a microphone and a pair of sneakers,» Lorde shared. «The music lends itself more to a live atmosphere. It’s stuff you can actually dance to.»
