This song has been out for six years, making her 15 when it debuted.
That is crazy young. Seriously. Even at 21, whilst some pervert may not have an issue, a normal man. Now, because men are they way they are, they may still forge on ahead, but still. Never even considered her a sex object, to be honest. Why is this all about sex then? Why must it be that every time a woman does something we – men, society, the greys – address her sexuality? Must be our hard wiring. HARD.
Watch ROYALS by Lourde
Let’s turn to Wikipedia for additional help.
Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor (born 7 November 1996), known professionally as Lorde (pronounced lord), is a New Zealand singer, songwriter, and record producer.
She made the right choice in using a pseudonym.
And thus every pedophile on earth was given another lifetime of cover.
After seeing an image by photographer Ted Spiegel in the July 1976 edition of National Geographic showing Kansas City Royals‘ baseball player George Brett signing baseballs, with his team’s name (Royals) emblazoned across his shirt, she had its title. She recalled during a 3 September 2013 VH1 interview, “It was just that word. It’s really cool.”
I knew this already but it’s still “really cool.” Is it, though? Is a single word “cool”? When using quotes as I just did, for non-quotation purposes, does the punctuation go inside or out the close quote? Does anyone care?
She explained the lyric “We’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams” was something she read in a diary she received at the age of 12.
Diaries shouldn’t come pre-filled in.
