“I’m kinda over getting told to throw my hands up in the air. So there.”


To those who are sick of music bloggers hyping up Lorde- I apologize in advance. To those of you who still haven’t heard of this girl, you need to check this out. Ella Yelich-O’Connor (as her real name is) is a 16 year old singer-songwriter from New Zealand, and is probably best known for her songs Tennis Court and Royals. What I like about this girl is that she’s got such an awesome style and attitude, I wish I was that cool when I was sixteen. She is now out with her brand new song Team, which I like just as much as her previous two hits. Here are some of my favorite Lorde quotes:

“It’s a new artform showing people how little we care. We’re so happy, even when we’re smilin’ out of fear. Let’s go down to the tennis court, and talk it up like yeah.”

“Don’t you think that it’s boring how people talk,
making smart with their words again, well I’m bored.”

“I’ve never seen a diamond in the flesh, I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies. And I’m not proud of my address, in the torn up town, no post code envy.

But every song’s like:
Gold teeth
Grey Goose
Tripping in the bathroom
Ball gowns
Trashing the hotel room

We don’t care, we’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams

But everybody’s like:
Diamonds on your timepiece
Jet planes
Tigers on a gold leash

We don’t care, we aren’t caught up in your love affair

And we’ll never be royals (royals)
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of lux just ain’t for us, we crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler (ruler)
You can call me queen bee
And baby I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule
Let me live that fantasy”

“We live in cities you’ll never see on screen
Not very pretty but we sure know how to run free
Livin’ in ruins of the palace within my dreams
And you know we’re on each other’s team.”

“I’m kind of over gettin’ told to throw my hands up in the air, so there. I’m kinda older than I was when I rebelled without a care. So there.”

“And everyone’s competing for a love they won’t receive.”

…So that’s like pretty much the lyrics of all three songs. Ok, bye.

  1. I just recently posted something like this! I love her style and her music is quality in comparison to most of the stuff out today. Preordered “Pure Heroine” and now I can’t wait to hear all of it!
