By the way, did we mention she's only 20?!
In an interview with CBS Sunday Morning, the "Green Light" crooner told Anthony Mason that "she's not very good at being famous," and that she sometimes struggles with being in the spotlight.
"You don't win by being really famous — I don't think that really helps make good work," she told Mason. "And, I've always been aware of that."
So, what is it about fame that really stresses her out? According to Lorde, it's all about the cameras.
"It's hard," she told Mason. "It's all body language — the subtlety, the angles. I don't know the angles!"
Take it from us, Lorde, you know how to work the angles.
In addition to being a little camera shy, the singer admitted that being in the public eye in general can be challenging.
"No one wants to see me try to be a cheerleader because I'm not that," she said. "I'm very comfortable at a library or a studio. Those are my places, so I think, just to keep the focus on the work and the words has always felt like the right thing to me."
Thankfully, she ventured out from between the bookshelves to the subway station, where she told Mason she found inspiration to write Melodrama.
"I thanked the subway in my album notes, because I wouldn't have been able to make the record without it," she said. "I found it such an amazing space to kind of be around people."
