For most artists, it's a dream come true, but the 17-year-old "Royals" singer worries that people will get sick of her music.
"I want to let people stop hearing Lorde on the radio all the time, because it's kinda crazy at the moment," she explains in the latest issue of V Magazine, where she shows off her impressive curly coif. "I'd like to give people a little bit of breathing room before I unleash something different."
The Grammy-winning musician admits it's strange rubbing shoulders with fellow celebrities in Hollywood, but says she's still the same person back home in New Zealand.
"But when I go home, I still do all the stuff I used to do," she says. "I dunno...part of me feels like it's weird to just get sucked into that world."
We bet her longtime boyfriend James Lowe helps to keep her grounded, too!
