Lorde Goes Makeup Free
Singer shares au naturel snap.
ProActiv, don’t come knocking. Singer Lorde is fine with her blemishes. The 17-year old “Royals” singer kept it real on Twitter as she shared two photos: one showing her acne, and one seemingly photoshopped to make her skin look perfect.

Lorde, whose boyfriend James Lowe recently opened up about his famous lady love, tweeted this photo to her nearly 1.5 million followers.

It is always refreshing to see a young artist embrace her imperfections and to send that message to her fans, but more than that Lorde is making a statement against the media’s unrealistic beauty ideal that is shoved down our throats at every turn. The singer is fast becoming music’s number one role model for young women.  Now, don’t screw it up! Just kidding, Lorde. You’re only 17 (supposedly). You’re allowed to mess up a few times.
