“It sounds obvious, but that’s cooked,” Lorde added. “For me, I’m not a girl that gets a bunch of likes. I’m who I am, and I’ve got to lean into that.”

“I think for the last one I was 21 and still like the kids,” she continued. “And then the culture started to change, and I didn’t know that I wanted to change with it.”

Lorde had a decision to make, and she chose to leave social media in the past. Even though sometimes she temporarily returns to her Instagram account.

“I didn’t know if I wanted to be a TikTok girl, Instagram stories girl, and it was a real crossroads,” she shared.

“I had to be like, ‘Do you want to keep being the kids? Or do you want to transition through that and be something of an elder statesman at 24?’” Lorde recalled telling herself. “Which I really feel like I am now, which I love, but it took a minute.”
