Just as much as we all admire Lorde's vocals and her hit single "Royal", we also wonder "Is she REALLY just 17 years old?!".
Lorde absolutely appears much more mature than one in her teens or even twenties, (dare I continue??)
According to Huffington Post, her birth certificate has been obtained and supposedly it states that she was born in 1996.
No matter her age, she is appreciated for her talent. I never could understand the big deal with entertainers not revealing their age if they happen to be "older" (whatever that number is..). I think the older that one hits the scene and experiences some level of fame and recognition for their talent(s), the better. These examples definitely serve as inspiration to others that may believe they are "too old" to follow their dreams. I think that's great!
It's not only the teenagers or early-20-somethings that need/want entertainers that they can relate to age-wise.
Do you believe this little "revelation" about Lorde?
