Not only does Lorde detest being referred to as a teen hottie, she refuses to accept tons of cash in order to do things that are not natural to her. She is not looking for a paycheck if it means selling her soul.
“I would like to think that my public persona comes naturally to me and isn’t that dissimilar to my real way of doing things. I’ve turned down easily millions of dollars doing what I do and saying no to things that I think are corny,” the ‘Royals’ singer admitted.
She’s probably referring to some sort of endorsements or licensing deals that would put her picture on products or her music in songs or commercials. We love a girl who sticks to her guns.
Instead of pocketing a payout, she’s trying to be a voice of her generation. As she said, “I’m trying to make something people my age will care about, trying to keep my peers feeling like I’m doing something for them or representing them in some way.”
For someone who is just 17, Lorde sure is self-aware and has a good head on those shoulders.
