Lorde at Comerica Theatre, 4/17/14
Friday, April 18, 2014 | 1 year ago
"I'm terrified of being an adult," Lorde told a packed house towards the end of her April 17 concert at Comerica Theatre.
Given the way the 17-year-old songstress' debut album, "Pure Heroine", dominated the latter half of 2013, and given her lyrics -- coolly defiant celebrations of suburbia, rejections of pop culture excesses -- you can see why the dominant narrative (and by that I mean a 17-year-old wary of the spotlight her expert songwriting propelled her into) about her is so pervasive. Her biggest hit, "Royals," an inescapable song of the summer, contains lyrics famously derisive of the wealthy lifestyle music stars love to brag about -- "I've never seen a diamond in the flesh," "We'll never be royals / It don't run in our blood." In the same song, she offers an alternative. "Let me be your ruler / You can call me Queen Bee." Read the full review of Lorde at Comerica Theatre here.
