Charli XCX on Lorde

At Diner, when asked about encountering this critique of her identity as a female performer who writes her own music, she goes off: “There’s always a catch. Like: ‘Does she really do that? I heard her mum wrote that song.’ I read that about Lorde. I’m like: As if! Just because she’s young and successful, why is someone trying to take that away from her? It’s because she’s highly intelligent and a female who’s killing it. She’s doing something different, and people are afraid of that.”
