Lorde Calls Out Photoshopped Image Of Herself

Flawed, and proud of it


As if you needed further proof of the coolness that is mega pop star Lorde, look no further. You know you're doing something right when Bruce Springsteen covers one of your songs.

Not only is the New Zealand-born singer of "Royals" fame, and one of the youngest ever Grammy winners, she is also fighting a one-woman battle for authenticity in an industry that values plasticity.

She took to Twitter to compare and contrast two photos of her taken during the same performance, one of which shows her with acne-pocked cheeks, the other with her blemishes glossed out.  

"i find this curious - two photos from today, one edited so my skin is perfect and one real. remember flaws are ok :-)" tweeted the star, courtesy of The Cut.

It was retweeted some 42,073 times, so someone out there is listening.

Cheers for keeping it real, Lorde.

Not even this gorgeous specimen was safe from the tyranny of Photoshop.
