Holy Lorde! The Pure Heroine will release her own make-up line!

Well sort of…

The popular cosmetic brand, MAC, will dedicate a limited edition make-up line dedicated to the teenage pure heroine, Lorde. MAC keeps true to Lorde’s signature look, releasing gothic dark yet classic cosmetic products including a rich plum lipstick and black liquid eyeliner. The pop-sensation couldn’t be more flattered and excited for the release of the limited collection, “I have loved MAC Cosmetics since I was a little kid! I remember saving up to buy my very first MAC lipstick at 14, and it was used by about 20 of my friends!”

The MAC Lorde Lipstick in Pure Heroine (R170) and the MAC Lorde Penultimate Eyeliner in Rapid Black (R207) will be available from 5 June – 3 July via maccosmetics.com

Flume + Lorde = Florde remix just released

Here it is fellow music lovers! Flume has kept his promise and finally dropped the bomb, releasing his personalised remix of Lorde’s hit, Tennis Court.

So it’s no surprise to see that the remix is already receiving a lot of online attention since its release on Youtube this morning. Give it till the end of the day and the track will probably go viral and be replayed in every club in Australia. Not that we’re complaining considering this track is a great follow up to Flume’s previous remix of Disclosure’s hit track, You & Me. It’s also refreshing to hear a new track from Flume as it’s been a while since his last release since he’s been busy on tour throughout the US, including his recent gig at Coachella.

So without further adieu ladies and gentlemen, here is the track you’ve been waiting for:

Oh My Lorde! The Pure Heroine postpones her Australian tour

Time to get down on your knees and pray Lorde fans because Lorde has just announced that she’ll be postponing her tour in Australia due to ill health.

The talented teen announced the news via Frontier Touring, “It breaks my heart to have to postpone these shows as the band and I absolutely love playing to Australian crowds, and it was not a decision we made lightly. I know I need to focus on getting better in order to perform at my best. We’ll be with you as soon as we can, Aussies.” The Kiwi sensation has also been kind enough to offer her fans an option to claim a refund for those who don’t want to hold on their ticket can contact their ticket holder as listed below via Frontier Touring:

Holy Lorde! The mystery of Lorde’s real age revealed!

There’s been a lot of online speculation about Ella Yelich O’Connor aka Lorde’s real age since she debuted with ‘Royals’ back in 2012 – and now it’s finally been settled. It turns out that the birth certificate unearthed by an online site called, The Smoker’s Gun, which claims that Lorde was born Ella Marija Lani Yelich O’Connorov on November 7, 1980 in Russia, was actually an April Fool’s joke. Yes, everyone’s favourite precociously talented teenager is infact a teenager from New Zealand, which still makes her the country’s biggest claim to fame since Keith Urban (who is technically Australian, but we’ll let them have him).

The website called The Hairpin, managed to purchase a copy of Lorde’s birthday certificate, which clearly states her D.O.B as the 7th November 1996. If you think about it, it does make sense that Lorde has been honest with her age. After all, who would want to be 17 again?


You can’t blame people for speculating though, considering Lorde (who will be in Australia next month for a tour), has been evasive about her age in a series of recent interviews. “Hi, I’m Ella,” she told Vanity Fair back in January, “and I’m actually 45.” She also told Rookie’s 35-year-old 17-year-old editor Tavi Gevinson that Sofia Coppola’s The Virgin Suicides “really resonated with me as a teenager”, before immediately correcting, “I mean, I am still a teenager.”

Make of that what you will. Either way, Lorde has still proven to be one of the most talented musicians of our time.

What better way to get chummy with our fellow New Zealanders than to invite their biggest ‘it’ girl in the music industry, Lorde, to perform as a special guest for this year’s ARIAs show! That’s right Lorde fans, put on your ‘royal’ attire because the ARIA’s have confirmed that Lorde will be performing her latest hit single, ‘Team’, at the ceremony. ARIA CEO, Dan Rosen, couldn’t be more proud to have the teen kiwi music-sensation on-board, “Lorde is an extremely talented artist and performer and one of the biggest artists in the world right now, so we are thrilled to be able to welcome her to this year’s ARIA Awards as a special guest performer.”
