Singer Lorde posted an essay about fame, creative success and growing up on Facebook to mark her 20th Birthday on November 7.
The essay is a reminder of the singer’s talent with words that helped make her debut album Pure Heroine a breakthrough success in 2013.
Lorde has since taken home a Grammy for Song of the Year for Royals in 2014, joined Taylor Swift’s Squad and become a teen idol in her own right.
“All my life I’ve been obsessed with adolescence, drunk on it. Even when I was little, I knew that teenagers sparkled. I knew they knew something children didn’t know, and adults ended up forgetting,” she wrote.
She also shared how she’s spent the past year away from the public eye and promises new music is on the horizon.
“I want nothing more than to spill my guts RIGHT NOW about the whole thing – I want you to see the album cover, pore over the lyrics (the best I’ve written in my life), touch the merch, experience the live show,” she shared.
“I can hardly stop myself from typing out the name. I just need to keep working a while longer to make it as good as it can be.”
