Lorde has never been about pretending someone she’s not, and now, she’s not letting anyone else pretend, either. When photos surfaced of her performance in Chile that had obviously been Photoshopped, she instantly took to Twitter to show how different the retouched version of her is from reality.
The 17-year-old “Royals” singer posted two photos side by side on Sunday: one that had been Photoshopped to remove acne on her face, and one that hadn’t.
“I find this curious — two photos from today, one edited so my skin is perfect and one real,” Lorde said. “Remember flaws are ok :-).”
Most teens would have a difficult time being a role model at such a rough time period of growing up, but we think Lorde is doing an amazing job. Who, as a teenager, would publicly share a photo that blatantly shows off their imperfections? When we were a victim of a bad pimple in high school, we’d totally want to stay home.
And this isn’t the first time Lorde’s been this brave. She also recently shared a makeup-free selfie, complete with acne cream. Of course, she was in bed in Paris at the time, so obvs her bad skin experiences top ours by a landslide.
It’s no wonder her boyfriend is just as in love with Lorde as we are. We are eternally jealous of her nerves of steel.
