In a rare interview,  Lorde said that she was given the opportunity to open for pop diva Katy Perry on Katy’s upcoming world tour BUT TURNED IT DOWN!

“I turn down a lot of things. I’m a bit picky with what I do and don’t do.” said Lorde, “I think she’s really talented; I just don’t think it was quite right for me.

She said that making the decision to skip such a high-profile tour wasn’t difficult, saying, “I mean, I have a pretty good gut instinct for stuff and if something feels right, I’ll do it.”

Wow! She has guts to turn down a big opportunity like that!

Her first full-length album, Pure Heroine, came out on Tuesday (September 30th) and includes her Number One hit “Royals.”
