Lorde says deleting her social media has been a “divine” experience. The “Solar Power” singer only has three Instagram posts and no tweets, however, her followers total over 7 million on the platform.
“I was just pummelling myself with headlines and thoughts from other people all day and it didn’t give me much room to have ideas or brainstorm things. I’m very grateful for that now,” says Lorde.
The only drawback Lorde says has been not being able to keep up with her friends, “People don’t really tell you what they’re up to, they just tell everyone via a story.”
The singer says she felt stress about the planet, systematic racism, and police brutality, “I don’t know how you, someone I would describe as being reasonably neurotic, cope with that.”
