Lorde of the Rings
Dead Ringer for 'Gollum'
The biggest breakthrough artist of 2013, NZ export Lorde (Ella Yelich - O'Connor) has linked herself to one of Lord of the Rings most evil characters - Gollum.
Chatting to Reddit AMA Lorde reflects on her her last 12 months and what she’s learned "I feel like I learned early on how things worked, and that gave me a good understanding of what could be f***ed with / which rules were dumb and shouldn't have to be followed”, she goes on to say that she “can sit down with basically the most intimidating people in the industry and not flinch. And maybe even make them flinch ... or cry. Heh”.
The 17-year-old will be touring around the states next year and has hinted at a new line of merchandise, citing that there will be “embroidery” involved!
So why has she thought of herself as Gollum? "I know when I'm onstage, I don't think about how it looks, I just concentrate on really feeling what I hear," she wrote. "But I totally know I look like Gollum when I perform, so it's cool."
