Dazed & Confused

Since age 16, the now 18 year-old superstar Lorde has taken the music world by storm. Photographed by Ryan McGinley and styled by Robbie Spencer in Dazed & Confused Magazine’s Summer 2015 issue, Lena Dunham speaks with Ella Yelich-O’Connor about her career and about what it means to be in the public sphere.

Dunham writes of meeting Lorde, “She brings up topics as diverse as intersectional feminism, the healing power of nature and the politics of the male-dominated music industry, and you feel as though an ancient mystic force is speaking to you from behind a bright teenage face.”

Her music included, Lorde is certainly a force to be reckoned with.
