Lorde likes being described as arrogant

LORDE says she likes being described as "arrogant" and aspires to be as confident as Kanye West.

The 'Royals' singer can sometimes come across as aloof, but claims it's a deliberate move and says she aspires to be as confident as her idol Kanye West.

She admitted: "I like making grand statements. The name Lorde is quite grand and a little bit arrogant. I like that, I like the intensity of it."

Probed about some critics calling her arrogant, she replied: "I don't mind. I'm a really big fan of Kanye West. He's confident and I like that. I'm not that confident in myself yet."

Despite her image, the 17-year-old pop sensation is actually a shy person and found it tough fitting in with her famous peers at first.

She explained in an interview with France's NRJ radio station: "I am shy and I'm pretty private. I'm getting way better at being in those situations. It's still really weird for me.

"I've learnt to have fun. I've made a lot of friends as well in this industry so I don't feel like such an outsider."

One person Lorde has become particularly close to is 23-year-old star Taylor Swift, but although they are good pals, the Kiwi singer doesn't think they will ever collaborate musically.

Quizzed whether they were going to record a duet, Lorde burst into giggles and replied: "I don't think so, no. She's great though."
