Lorde: 'Someone thought I was Taylor Swift's manager'

'Yellow Flicker Beat' songstress Lorde has revealed that she was once mistaken for Taylor Swift's manager at an industry event she attended with the 'I Knew You Were Trouble' superstar. 

Speaking to Jimmy Fallon about the awkward encounter, she admitted that she and Swift just went with it because it was entertaining and easier than explaining otherwise: "We were at this grimy party, and this was one of my first [industry events]. This was before the GRAMMYs, and I was like, 'Oh there are all of these people everywhere! There's this person! Oh it's insane,' and I found her [Taylor] and clung to her."

"A lot of people come up to Taylor just to talk about stuff and she's lovely, she's great, and there was this guy, and he wanted her to play at some event he was having. So he talked to us for about 10 minutes and she was obviously lovely about it, but we got to the end of the conversation and he said, 'So I'll leave my card, is this your manager?' And he pointed at me, and no beat passed and she was like, 'Yep'."

Lorde went onto add that it was a very bizarre experience and she finds it pretty funny to look back on now: "And all of a sudden I was Taylor Swift's manager, this tiny, gothy, hunched person. And I performed on that stage about half an hour later."
