Lorde finds renouncing social media "terribly difficult"

Twitter, Instagram and Facebook? Lorde has voluntarily withdrawn from the platforms, which was anything but easy for her. What is the reason?

Los Angeles – The New Zealand singer Lorde says she has not used social media for some time and suffers from withdrawal symptoms.

“It was terribly difficult, the hardest thing I’ve ever done,” said the 24-year-old on Wednesday on the “Late Late Show” hosted by James Corden. “I felt so disconnected. But that’s how my life is now. “

She was motivated by the desire to have more time for her music, said Lorde. “I’m really just doing it because I’m trying to write songs and I’ve wasted a lot of time.” That’s why she pulled out of Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. The isolated videos and messages that can still be found on Lorde’s official Facebook page are therefore probably not posted by the singer herself.

Lorde released her third album “Solar Power” last Friday – around four years after her last studio album “Melodrama” was released. The singer-songwriter, who is actually called Ella Yelich-O’Connor, rose to fame in 2013 with her first album “Pure Heroine”. The single “Royals” was number one in the charts in several countries. After the follow-up album “Melodrama” (2017), she had largely withdrawn from the public. dpa
