You may know her from her hit song Royals. Or from her recent Solar Power album. But where you know her from doesn’t really matter, does it?
What matters is, Lorde— the singer-songwriter from New Zealand – has confirmed she’s highly sensitive.
That’s right, world! Lorde is a highly sensitive person.
And we can’t let this information go unmentioned.
About Lorde Being a Highly Sensitive Person
In an interview with Vogue, for her 2021 October cover, Lorde says this of herself:
I’m a highly sensitive person. I’m not built for pop star life. To have a public-facing existence is something I find really intense and is something I’m not good at.
Yet, we’ve actually seen Lorde be good at all of it. So how does she do it? How does she handle the intensity of her career?
Here’s what she says:
… for whatever reason people have allowed me to say, Okay, I’m going to come and do the thing—do the shoot, do the red carpet, speak to the journalists, put the music out.
—and when I’ve done it to the point of total exhaustion, when I have completely quenched that thirst, I’m going to go home, and you’re not going to see me for two or three or four years.
What a way to recharge! What a way to be highly sensitive! And what a way to be so relatable!
