Last year on her birthday, Lorde was at home in New Zealand, hanging out with friends, eating cake and discussing Pokemon. Fast-forward one year later and it's safe to say that a lot has changed for the "Royals" singer.
this time last year i was making a soundcloud, and a twitter, and a tumblr, all in the name lorde. i had no clue what was going to happen with the music. i hoped it’d be alright.
The reflective, sweet post also shared Lorde's thoughts on what the future holds:
i don’t even know what i’m trying to say, just attempting to reflect on what’s going on right now. i’m already thinking about the next project, about reinvention, and personae, and theatricality and subtlety, and simplicity and complexity. and strength. today’s weird time blip is a day off (kind of), so i’m going to wrap up warm and walk around the city listening to stevie nicks and broken social scene, feeling all seventeen, hugging myself against the cold. if you see me, and i’m whispering to myself all crazy, don’t worry. it’s just a happy mantra of thanks for the way things are.
Happy birthday, Lorde! You're awesome.
