Singer Lorde is going to be ELLE magazine’s October issue cover girl and, according to her Twitter account, she’s more excited about it than all of her fans will be.

On Twitter a couple of days ago, Lorde tweeted, “got to shoot with the coolest team in London. i’m PUMPED to share it all with you. for now, here’s my favourite shot”, along with a photograph of Lorde wearing a black Amish-style hat and a quite fabulous white jacket.

The 17-year-old singer was also interviewed by ELLE, and talked about how she hates being talked down to as she just ends up “rolling her eyes”, how teenagers like herself are always aware of how they need to ‘market’ themselves and create a specific image, and what it’s like working with a huge team of people “that spans continents” as her career goes into hyper-drive.
