Lorde Steps Out with Her Boyfriend!
Who says it’s lonely at the top? Fresh off her Jan. 26 Grammy wins for Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year, Lorde stepped out with boyfriend James Lowe in Auckland, New Zealand, on Thursday, Jan. 30
The couple’s relationship has been something of a hot topic for both fans and critics of the “Team” singer, ever since they were photographed on a beach together in December. Twitter users slammed Lowe’s appearance and Asian heritage — “some pretty nasty s–t,” Lorde (real name: Ella Yelich-O’Connor) said.
“You almost wonder about humans,” she added, noting that interracial relationships are common where she grew up. “That’s why the reaction came as such a surprise to me. No one I know would even think this was a big deal.”
Is it a big deal? Are there still people that are that small minded in this world?
