While this past year has seen huge success (and major backlash) for pop's teenage curmudgeon Lorde, I doubt many things could compare to being complimented by David Bowie. The "Royals" singer revealed in an interview with Rookie that the Thin White Duke raved about her music at Tilda Swinton's MOMA birthday bash.
Have you had moments of just like, "Whoa, my life has come full circle"?
Definitely. I don't want to do the weird name-dropping thing but like-
Meeting David Bowie was like that. To have someone like that tell you that listening to you felt like listening to tomorrow.
OH MY GOD.
I was like...I could creatively die and just be happy forever. I never tell anyone about that experience, because it meant so much to me, and I feel like it would be dulled or something if I always talked about it in magazines or whatever. It's my special thing.
Do you want us to not include it in this?
Oh, I mean, it's OK. It was super cute, though-for some reason we were holding hands and just staring into each other's eyes and talking, and I was like, This is David Bowie's hand, what am I doing? It was insane. A beautiful moment.
