fete : [lorde]

in concert, lorde is a goth serpantine minx : her spastic dinosaur hands meld into snakelike hip rolling as she hypnotizes us with her wild hair and feline eyes. the girl can smize. someone in the audience yells "dayum! sixteen!" and our trance is momentarily broken as the new zealander flips her hair and breaks character with a quick giggle. she lets the full kiwi out as she raps a kanye song and says, "nah, not gonna tell you to put your hands in the air. do what you want."
