Lorde, whose real name is Ella Yelich-O’Connor, shot to international
prominence last year with Royals, a song about feeling alienated from the
luxury lifestyle promoted by popular culture.

The artist, who hails from Auckland’s affluent North Shore, has been
front-page news in New Zealand this week after her eye-catching performance
at the Los Angeles awards show.

She said she was becoming used to being a public commodity, adding «the
fact that I’m getting used to it frightens me».

«There is a difference between attn from fans, which I love, and the
constant, often lecherous gaze that I’m subjected to in this industry,»
she tweeted.

«I know that success comes with a price tag. it just sucks when you see
that in your tiny home country where you previously felt safe.»

Earlier, Lorde had praised her homeland’s public and media for their support
in a full-page advertisement in the New Zealand Herald.

«I just wanted to say thank you for the time you’ve given me these past
14 months, finding out about me online, or in between these pages, or in
your headphones,» she said.
