If there’s one thing Microsoft’s new web toy “How Old Do I Look?” is good for, it’s exploiting our collective narcissism to build a robust facial recognition database. But if it’s good for a second thing, it’d have to be answering the open question of how old alleged celebrity teenager Lorde really is.
Grammy-winning New Zealand singer Lorde's rise to fame is especially remarkable because she's just 17 years old. Or that's what she wants you to think. Despite the release of the singer's birth certificate—or an easily-forged printout of it, anyway—earlier this year, some still believe Lorde is older than she claims.
Weird Al Yankovic's #8Videos8Days continues with a parody of "Royals", the Lorde song that even Lorde is sick of hearing. Al's version is fresh, though, because he's got it wrapped up tight in strong, versatile aluminum foil (foiiiiil). It's as good for preserving sandwiches as it is for preserving your head from government thought control.
The living members of Nirvana reunited Thursday night when the band was inducted into the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame in a Brooklyn ceremony, just 4 days after the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death. New Zealand singer Lorde took over vocal duties on "All Apologies," a song released 3 years before she was (allegedly) born.
Puddles the Sad Clown is just like teenage pop sensation Lorde, except that he's extremely tall, entirely mute when he's not singing, and is a clown. They do both have golden voices, though.
Bruce Springsteen was in Auckland, New Zealand yesterday, which is also the home definitely-a-teen-and-not-secretly-much-older idol Lorde. In her honor, the Boss performed a growling cover of her Grammy-winning single "Royals." If you pay too close of attention he kinda sounds like an SNL parody of Bruce Springsteen covering modern pop songs.
