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.”

    Stop hating on Lorde i do not listen to her but that doesn’t give you an excuse

    I think Lorde forgets she really is a new artist. Most new artists would JUMP at the chance to tour with Katy.. I get she needs to establish herself as her own person but in the industry, she’s missing so many opportunities that could have come from her touring with Katy. If she doesn’t build a bigger fan base, her next record will probably flop.

    Katy dont worry bout her stubborness, you can ask me instead! Kidding! But I do think people who arent famous should do opening acts anyway, Lorde is already out there. How about helping others get seen?

  • Ranny jaravati

    She wasted her good chance because when she’s supporting Katy and being the front act for her shows the katycats will love her too because katy loves her.

    Everyone chill down for a sec. Lorde can mae a choice, she wanted to be her own self and climb the ladder without any help from already well established stars. Its not a crime, Katy offered and Lorde can say Yes or No. Katy has probably already forgotten about it already!
