Lorde Turned Down Katy Perry's Offer to Open Her Tour - Find Out Why

Lorde lights up the stage during her show at The Fillmore Theatre on Sunday night (March 16) in Detroit, Mich.

The 17-year-old New Zealand native recently opened up about being “really stubborn” and “really independent,” which is why she turned down Katy Perry‘s offer for a spot on her tour.

“In the really early stages of an artist’s career it’s important for them to establish themselves for themselves,” Lorde told an Australian radio station. “I’m just basically really stubborn and I want to be really independent. So I want to be headlining my own shows instead of supporting someone else. Which I think is fair enough.”
