Lorde Turned Katy Perry Down

Robert Kessler / September 19, 2013

“I have a pretty good gut instinct for stuff and if it feels right I’ll do it,” up-and-comer Lorde said of turning down an offer to open for Katy Perry.

Lorde’s debut album, Pure Heroine, is due out later this month. However, based on the success of her first EP, The Love Club, Lorde already has hoards of fans, including Katy Perry apparently. So Perry asked the 16-year-old to open for her, but Lorde said it just didn’t feel right. I think she’s really talented,” she adds.
