The teenage singer opens up about her boyfriend being cyberbullied, texting Taylor Swift and how she copes with her anxiety and insecurities

LordeIt's not easy being Lorde...just ask the 17-year-old Grammy-nominated singer herself!

In the latest issue of Rolling Stone, the New Zealand born musician opens up about dealing with her anxiety.

"I get paralyzingly nervous a lot of times, so I tried bravado," she explains. "The way I dress and carry myself, a lot of people find intimidating. I think my whole career can boiled down to the one day word I always say in meetings: strength."

It also took strength to ignore the cyber-bullying that sprang up on the internet after she was photographed at the beach with her Asian boyfriend James Lowe.

"[I'm] not completely impervious to insult," she says of the comments that her beau was ugly. "I'm a human being."

Luckily, she has friends to lean on like Taylor Swift, who first sent roses to Lorde when her single "Royals" hit number one.

"I was floored," Lorde says, adding that she asks Tay for advice. When torn between two Christmas presents for her manager, she texted Taylor for her opinion.

"Taylor's super good at this stuff," she explains to the mag. "She's decorated her own house for ages." Lorde Texts Taylor Swift for Advice
