Either way, you know there are tons of interesting facts about Lorde that make her more than just another female singer.

But even though Lorde is part of Swift’s “girl squad,” she isn’t crazy about the label. Other cool stories about Lorde range from how she got her stage name to her obsession with a particular fried food.
