Lorde is one of the biggest stars on the planet and like most celebrities, this makes her a target for internet trolls.

During an interview with NME, the New Zealander revealed that early in her career, she was flooded with body-shaming comments.


She explained that the comments started coming when her song 'Royals' started to top the charts around the world.

"I remember all these kids online, I think I beat their favourite people to No. 1 [on the charts], and they were like, 'F*** her, she's got really far-apart eyes.' 

"I remember being like, 'Whoa! How did I get all this way without knowing I had far-apart eyes?' 

"When it was happening, I was quite overwhelmed by it

"I remember being made aware of my looks and my body in a way that I had never been." 


Since then, Lorde has kept off of the trolls radars and focused on reconnecting with her friend, family and music.

She says she now feels more secure in herself and doesn't care if she's not as famous as she used to be.

"I was able to return to my family and shelter against [the hurtful online comments] and get to where I am now.

"I feel so comfortable in myself."


We love you, Lorde!
