Ella Yelich-O’Connor in real life, Lorde insists that it’s one of her best decisions and she feels the freedom rather than be bombarded with information every single day.


Lorde shared on the Australian radio show ‘Ash London Live’ where she said…

It’s been divine, I really enjoy it. I’m a shy sensitive person.

It’s a lot of information, I realize how I was just pummeling myself with headlines and thoughts from other people all day and it didn’t give me much room to have ideas or brainstorm things. I’m very grateful for that now.

However, Lorde confesses that there is a drawback to leaving social media, she now finds it harder to keep in touch and be updated with her friends’ lives.

Lorde said, “The only thing I do think is that I underestimated how much of my friends’ loves I kept up with on Instagram. People don’t really tell you what they’re up to, they just tell everyone via a story. That’s how people stay connected. I really have to make friend dates. I’ve been calendaring people’s birthdays now.”


Lorde further stated, “Part of what made me peace out on social media, apart from feeling like I was losing my free will, was the massive amounts of stress I was feeling about our planet, about systemic racism, and about police brutality in this country.”

“I don’t know how you, someone I would describe as being reasonably neurotic, cope with that.”

Previously, the ‘Royals’ hitmaker claimed she felt as though she was losing her free will by spending so much time on social media.
