And though she's already separated herself from the majority of her pop star peers, Lorde would like everyone to refrain from dubbing her a "teen hottie."

We're not sure exactly who is calling Lorde a "teen hottie," but we agree it should probably stop right now. Take note, however, that it's all right to label her a "pop princess."
“I’m a pop princess at heart," she admitted to the paper. “Pop is about distilling what you want to say and making it easy. And the way I write isn’t about making things easy. It’s a weird juxtaposition.”
