Lorde On Quitting All Of Her Social Media

“Horribly Difficult,” Says Lorde About Ditching Social Media


Lorde on her first appearance on The Late Late Show hosted by James Corden revealed why she mysteriously deleted nearly all her social media.

The Chart-Topping Grammy Award Winning Pop Sensation said, “I did it because felt like my brain wasn’t working very well anymore. It was horribly difficult, the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Still horribly difficult every day.”

“I think it’s like – it would be like stopping eating sugar for me, like I still eat tons of sugar and if I don’t have sugar, I feel insane. And the first little while of not being on social media was totally like that, I was so crabby. I felt so disconnected. But it’s how my life is now.”

She continued saying, “But I will say the brain will make anything into a social network. I got rid of twitter and Instagram and Facebook. I blocked YouTube, that was a big one. I was like this kind of social network, but now my social network is the “New York Times” Cooking App.”

Lorde expressed that the Cooking App became her source of community since she gets all those weird little stories, juicy details, every once in a while.
She likewise eliminated search engines like Google and Safari in her phone and her assistant knows her social media passwords.

She also revealed how she never search anything about herself but instead, what she searches is purely sort of the experience of reading about the world all the time.

Lorde recently released her album “Solar Power” and it is currently #1 in more than 50 countries on Apple Music.
