Have you heard of Lorde? Her song "Royals" has been playing quite a bit on the radio here. However, it wasn't until this week that I learned she is only sixteen and is preparing to release her first album this September. The description she wrote for her music video allowed me to appreciate the video more. She explains she was trying to show how it feels to be sixteen, and chose to use her two friends in the video as well as places they frequent to make it feel very honest. She wanted to convey the listlessness and even boredom you can have in your teens. She says, "half the time we aren't doing anything cooler than playing with lighters."
Hope you enjoy the video and have a great weekend!
