New Zealand teenage pop sensation Lorde complained about the “frightening” price of fame on Wednesday after a media pack jostled her when she returned home following her Grammys success.
The 17-year-old, who this week won Grammys for song of the year and best solo pop performance with her chart-topping “Royals”, said she was saddened at the reception she received after touching down at Auckland 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,” she said in the first of a series of tweets which were later deleted. Lorde, whose real name is Ella Yelich-O’Connor, shot to international prominence last year with “Royals”, a song about feeling alienated from the luxury lifestyle promoted by popular culture.
