Lorde took to Reddit yesterday for an AMA (Ask Me Anything) Q&A session with fans, in which she showed off her playful side, chatted with fans and proved that she's no stranger to the forum's customs and culture. She started with a bang, posting this "doge" gif and proving that she knows exactly what Reddit likes.
For an hour, she answered questions on everything from music, to her favorite books, to her experiences with fame in New Zealand. Here are a few of the highlights from the session.
Are you planning on finishing school?
not sure yet! obviously it's hard at the moment, although i do read theses/academic writing from teachers regularly. i read this cool thing jennifer lawrence said the other day about learning about the world through books vs. her real world experience, and i'm definitely feelin that right now. but maybe that's just a lazy person's excuse
My roommate and I have noticed that you talk about teeth a lot on your album. Why is that?
just a weird obsession that has been with me always. ironically, i hate dentists.
Are you confident in your stage performance? I know people have criticized the way you perform, how do you respond to that?
i know when i'm onstage, i don't think about how it looks, i just concentrate on really feeling what i hear. but i totally know i look like gollum when i perform, so it's cool.
Do you regret going into the music industry so young?
actually, no. i feel like i learnt early on how things worked and that gave me a good understanding of what could be fucked with/which rules were dumb and shouldn't have to be followed. plus, i can sit down with basically the most intimidating people in the industry and not flinch. and maybe even make them flinch. or cry. heh.
What shampoo do you use
my mum buys it in 2-litre bottles from the supermarket i don't even know
Have you seen the cover of Royals by Puddles the Clown? It's brilliant!
it's my FAVOURITE
The 17-year-old star made such an impression that Reddit's own artist and celebrity Shitty_Watercolour even made an appearance to paint a welcome message and a lovely rendition of her as a sloth.
