Lorde: 'I Like Being Called Arrogant'
New Zealand pop sensation Lorde recently responded to critics calling her arrogant, shrugging it all off by noting that she in fact likes it.

"I don't mind," she told NJR Radio. "I'm a really big fan of Kanye West. He's confident and I like that. I'm not that confident in myself yet.

"I like making grand statements. The name Lorde is quite grand and a little bit arrogant. I like that, I like the intensity of it," the singer added (via Gigwise).

The 17-year-old star, real name Ella Yelich-O'Connor, also confessed that she's still getting used to her stage name, saying, "I am shy and I'm pretty private. I'm getting way better at being in those situations. It's still really weird for me. I've learnt to have fun. I've made a lot of friends as well in this industry so I don't feel like such an outsider."

Lorde recently joined Nirvana onstage at the Rock Hall induction ceremony last Thursday (April 10), performing classic tune "All Apologies." Check out the performance clip below.
