Singer Lorde Slams The Voice And X Factor
Pop sensation Lorde has voiced her dismay over popular reality singing competitions.
‘I’m glad I was allowed to develop and work on my talent,’ the 16-year-old New Zealander said, ‘unlike many singers today who think the answer is starring on a reality or talent show.’
‘Shows like The X Factor or The Voice breed this idea that you get what you want the chancey way rather than by hard work.’
The solo artist has had more than 60 million hits on YouTube with her single Royals.
The number one artist spoke of her new found fame.
‘I don’t think I could ever live in LA. It does something to your soul. The place really infects people – if I stay there for too long I start being a freak,’ she told The Sun.
