Lorde Thinks It's Crazy She's The Only Woman Nominated For Album of the Year at the Grammys

When you take a first look at the nominations for the 2018 Grammys, you’ll notice that Lorde is the only woman nominated for Record of the Year.

She’s actually proud of that too, she revealed to Billboard in this week’s issue.

“It was the middle of the night, and I was aware that the nominations were coming out, and I’d done that thing where I’d convinced myself that [I wouldn't be nominated],” she remembers about hearing about her nomination. “I was getting over it in my mind, like, ‘You still made a great record.’”

Lorde also says that while she psyched herself out that she wouldn’t get any, she did, and it changed her outlook: “And then a friend found me and told me, and we were the only people in this room who knew. It was such a special moment.”

“It’s crazy I’m the only woman in my category, and I feel very proud of that,” she says. “I’m wearing that mantle for sure.”

Lorde adds, “But I’m also stoked that I’m in there with four incredible artists of color — it’s a big moment for the Grammys. It’s exciting when these institutions move in the right way. To me, that is a huge victory.”
