Lorde on turning 17: 'This time last year I had no idea what would happen with my music'

'Royals' songstress Lorde has opened up about turning 17 in a new blog post and confessed that she can't believe the success she has achieved in just 12 short months. 

Writing on her Tumblr page, the talented young hitmaker explained that she only created social media pages under the name Lorde last year so to now be celebrating her 17th birthday as a genuine artist is overwhelming:

"This time last year i was making a soundcloud, and a twitter, and a tumblr, all in the name Lorde. I had no clue what was going to happen with the music. I hoped it’d be alright."

She went on to add that she is incredibly grateful for everything she has achieved and that she plans to spend her birthday walking around her city and feeling happy about how everything is going in her life:

"I don’t even know what I’m trying to say, just attempting to reflect on what’s going on right now. I’m already thinking about the next project, about reinvention, and personae, and theatricality and subtlety, and simplicity and complexity... and strength. Today’s weird time blip is a day off (kind of), so I'm going to wrap up warm and walk around the city listening to Stevie Nicks and Broken Social Scene, feeling all seventeen, hugging myself against the cold. If you see me, and I’m whispering to myself all crazy, don’t worry. It’s just a happy mantra of thanks for the way things are."
