There are a lot of young and talented stars beginning to make a name for themselves in the entertainment industry these days, whether it be on the music scene, in Hollywood or as a model, there is certainly no shortage of talent. One such young and talented star is the singer and songwriter Lorde, who is enjoying her recent rise to fame with her music career.
At the age of just 17, Lorde has grown up in an era where social media is a very important tool for a celebrity to use to help promote their talents and keep close to their fans. Lorde has now opened up about growing up with social media, admitting that it feels very normal to her since she has been involved in it from a young age.
Lorde told Britain's Stylist magazine, "I was ten [when Twitter first appeared], so I've grown up with it. It's much more normal to me than it would be for a lot of people. I understand the importance of things like Twitter and people feeling like they know you and are emotionally invested in you as an artist and as a person. It's cool. I like being able to share things with people."
With the huge amount of Summer festivals lined up this year, Lorde is going to find herself very busy for much of 2014 but that can only be a good thing. The singer went on to talk about the press invasion that celebrities have to put up with in their life these days, claiming that it is a small price to pay for her successful career.
Lorde added, "It still completely bugs me out that I get to play venues that are sold out in the craziest corners of the world. I couldn't point to that place on a map but these people know the lyrics to a song I wrote a long way away. I can't make that normal in my head. But I figure in terms of, you know, living with privacy, it's kind of a small sacrifice."
We look forward to seeing Lorde on the stage at some of the top Summer festivals this year.
