Before she was topping the charts and putting her foot in her mouth about artists like David Guetta, Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez, Lorde was a pretty 12-year-old fronting a band called Extreme. (We’ll forgive her for not knowing that was a metal band first since she wasn’t even born back then!) And she looked exactly the same!
In a video that unearthed from a talent show at her school, Lorde dresses and sounds extremely (no pun intended) similar to how she does now. She has powerhouse pipes, long dark waves, a black leather jacket and matching tights, a ripped white dress and a whole lot of attitude. Okay, maybe not quite as much as she does now.
And she was still humble back then, too! She admits she may not have won in a competition. A lot like how she confessed recently that she doesn’t think ‘Royals’ is necessarily as profound as everyone says it is.
See, Joe Jonas? She’s actually pretty awesome.
