  • Lorde turns 18 today and was celebrated by her family and her friend Taylor Swift.
  • Lorde will be coming to inherit $11 million from her album releases last year.

She released the video of her new single Yellow Flicker Beat on Twitter as a gift to her fans on her birthday.

Ella Yelich-O’Connor a.k.a Lorde turned 18 today so Happy Birthday! What an amazing birthday is coming for the Royals single that topped the US charts for nine consecutive months. 

The singer performed in her home town in Vector Arena in New Zealand and at the stroke of midnight, she posted the video of her new single ‘Yellow Flicker Beat’ on Twitter. The video was captioned as her gift to her fans.

The video featured Lorde’s new look and Taylor Swift celebrated her birthday by posting a picture of her and Lorde on Instagram. She wished her a Happy Birthday and commented that although she had turned 18, she really was 300 years old. And she knew all the secrets of the universe. Really? Taylor knows better. 

Lorde shared the most watched video slot on You Tube with Gangham Style. How cool is that? With the success of Royals and Team, the albums being sold, the records being played on the shows and her performances earned her a grand total of $11 million in last year alone.

She is set to inherit that amount when she has come of age. She might be taking control of the company Sackful of Squirrels from her dad Viktor O’ Connor but nothing’s for sure yet.

She not only earned millions herself but her songwriting partner Joe Little also earned $3.2 million and her representing agency earned a worth of $2.7 million. It is said that Lorde might have won the Lotto. 

You’d think Lorde would be happy but she is more concerned with her acne. She shared with her fans that she thought the acne would go away at 18. It didn’t.

Lorde wrote on her Tumblr, "The first thing that came into my head just now is that i thought i would have less acne at eighteen..some things never change. Lol. Happy birthday to me."

She also wrote about her 7th birthday. "On my seventeenth birthday, i wrote from my hotel bed in new york. On the team music video release, I wrote from paris. When yellow flicker beat came out, I wrote from the bus, whizzing across the las vegas desert," she said.

"It feels nice to come full circle, in a way, back to where I typed out the little note to accompany the royals video, back where I sucked my thumb, and talked in my sleep, and dreamed."

somehow I'm gonna get me 2 Grammys

The siblings share their birthday. The brother and sister looked so cute! It was a pleasing site to see Lorde as a kid compared to her gothic apparel now-a-days. 

The rave right now is all about the Yellow Flicker Beat. Lorde explained that the song is about Katniss realizing that things have gone over the edge. Lorde will be composing the whole album for Hunger Games: Mocking Jay Part 1.
