Lorde's Talks About Why She's 'So Passionate' About Going Home to New Zealand

Lorde‘s Dior jumpsuit is so on point on the cover of Elle magazine’s June 2017 issue, on newsstands now.

The 20-year-old entertainer talks about her home in New Zealand, her creative process, and more. Here’s what she shared…

On having a private creative process: “Everyone’s making music in L.A. now—which is great if you aren’t the shyest, most introverted nerd. I found it a little too social. I made my first record in New Zealand with very little discourse—I was just my own unit. In L.A., it’s very, ‘Oh, what project are you working on?’ I was like, ‘I need to be out of this.’”

On how she balances her celebrity status and personal creative process: “New Zealand. That’s why I am so passionate about going home. Most of my friends are people I knew before I was famous. I’m very thankful that I never feel like the smartest person in the room, or the coolest person in the room, or the funniest. When I’m there, I’m just there. People forget that I’ve done anything. They say, ‘Ella’s this weird old dowager with a nice house.’”
