Lorde: ''Royals' Sounds Awful, Like a 2006 Nokia Ringtone'
Young pop sensation Lorde openly bashed her breakthrough singe "Royals," explaining how she realized that it sounds "horrible" and even comparing it to a Nokia ringtone.

Chatting with the Daily Record, Lorde commented (via Gigwise), "I listen to people covering the song and putting their own spin on it, and I listen to it in every single form except the original one I put out, and I realize that actually it sounds horrible."

Continuing to slam, the vocalist added, "It sounds like a ringtone from a 2006 Nokia. None of the melodies are cool or good. It's disastrous. Awful ... But for the same reason, in the context of the way I released it, it just worked out."

Fans and critics would probably disagree with Lorde, seeing that the single has received pretty much unanimous praise from both sides, selling over 5 million units in the US alone.

The list of artists covering "Royals" is now quite a lengthy one, and features Bruce Springsteen, Nirvana's Krist Novoselic, DJ Starscream of Slipknot and more.
