Lorde is getting a taste of what often comes with stardom.

After taking home two Grammys at Sunday night's show, the "Royals" crooner returned home to New Zealand Tuesday, only to be swarmed by paparazzi when she stepped off a plane in the airport.

"Nz media almost pushed over myself and my family at the airport this morning in order to get their shots. bit of a sad welcome if i'm honest," Lorde tweeted Tuesday.

"I understand that people of note are supposedly fair game for everyone to photograph and film but that doesn't make it acceptable," she continued. "I'm beginning to get used to my image as a public commodity, and the fact that I'm getting used to it frightens me."

"There is a difference between attn from fans, which i love, and the constant, often lecherous gaze that i'm subjected to in this industry," Lorde went on.

"I know that success comes with a price tag. it just sucks when you see that in your tiny home country where you previously felt safe."

Lorde, who won awards for Song of the Year for "Royals" and Best Pop Solo Performance later deleted all of her tweets about the incident.

In spite of her paparazzi woes though, we're sure the 17-year-old singer is still celebrating her Grammy wins, especially considering that it cemented her as the third-youngest Grammy winner in history.
