If you need a pick-me-up for this hump-day Wednesday, Lorde's "Royals" is that song. Lorde is only 16, from New Zealand, and sings about real life. No, she didn't come from money. So she's singing about it. The Cut (a la New York Mag) interviewed the starlet, whose real name is Ella, about recording her first studio-album and how she's not like Taylor Swift. Enjoy.
