Singer-songwriter Lorde Discloses How She Deals With Her "Really Bad Stage Fright"

Lorde told Rolling Stone, "It's a serious problem that I'm trying to get on top of."

Lorde Talks About Her 'Really Bad Stage Fright,' And How She Overcame It

"I'm afraid I'm at a loss for words. It's a serious issue, and I'm working hard to resolve it. Lorde told Byrne for Rolling Stone, in an exclusive interview with People magazine, that she tries to jot down thoughts.

When she goes back in time, she writes notes on the stage for herself, hoping to read what the "me from the past" is attempting to tell me from the future." In spite of this, "it's a true battle."

"A lot of puzzles on tour," she continued.

It's possible that my stage fear is exacerbated when I apply a piece shortly before I go on. Added the entertainer, "That's too abrupt of a shift in tone." The first song's puzzle still hasn't been found for me." ' The "Solar Power" singer recently admitted to Vogue that her demeanor and temperament make her day job difficult.

To put it another way, I'm an extremely sensitive individual. According to the 24-year-old singer, "I'm not built for the pop star life. Being in the spotlight is something I despise because it's exhausting and I'm not very good at it. No, I don't possess that sort of inherent charisma. In the jar I've got the brain."


That could explain why the singer only performs for a short time before returning to her own New Zealand to rest and recharge her batteries.


When Lorde told the magazine, "I'm going to come and do the thing, Okay, I'm going to come and do the thing — to do the shoots, do red carpets, speak to journalists, put the music out — and when I've done it to the point of total exhaustion, when I've completely quenched that thirst," she told the magazine. Byrne chimed in, saying that he had a similar experience when he was younger. However, Lorde wants to complete a problem beforehand before going on stage.

"On the road, I solve a lot of problems. Stage fear may be exacerbated by the fact that I frequently apply makeup immediately before taking the stage. That's just too abrupt of a shift in attitude. The "Royals" conundrum in the first song is something I'm currently searching for "a songbird remarked.

Lorde talked about being a "shy girl" in the music industry to Variety earlier this month.

At the time, Lorde told the publication, "Being bold is crucial because people will only listen to you if you speak up."


"I've always had a hard time in social situations. I'd get up on a stage and give a speech or do anything wacky before retreating back to my room "he asserted,


As for how Byrne manages to get into performance mode, Lorde asks him about his strategies, and he replies that he simply keeps himself "busy."


"I don't have any sort of morning ritual. I'm always doing something. I brew a pot of ginger tea and set it aside "he explained. "It takes me about 15 minutes to peel the ginger, slice it, put it in a thermos, and add some hot water and lemon or whatever else I have on hand. Avoid thinking about what I'm about to do." "It's difficult for me because I'm a shy person, a bashful young lady. On the other hand, you always regret not having the courage to do something, although you rarely regret really doing it "she carried on.


For Vogue's October cover story, she also claimed that she's "not built for the pop star life."


"Even though I'm excellent at what I do, I'm not sure I'm the right man for the job. I have a high threshold for pain. I'm not cut out for the life of a pop star "Lorde had this to say. "It's exhausting and difficult for me to maintain an outward-facing existence. No, I don't possess that sort of inherent charisma. The brain is in the jar, and I'm the only one who can open it."
