Modern Genius: Royals/Pure Heroine


                                                    Royals: By Lorde 


                                        
2013 was a huge year for one of the most talented young stars to break out from New Zealand. Her name is Lorde, and her masterpiece Royals was a global phenomenon that catapulted her all the way to the top of the music pyramid. Royals is truly an elite song destined for eternal fame, but before we talk about that, let's discuss a little bit about its singer and creator: the seventeen year old Lorde.

Lorde: Lorde is the stage name of Ella Yelich-o'connor who adopted said stage name having a fascination of royalty and hierarchical systems. First off, Lorde represents everything that is missing from today's shitty music as well as today's scumbag young generation. I want to make it clear that Lorde is an individual with a nonchalant attitude. Lorde has her own character and image that she believes suits her well and at the same she don't give no shit about what others say about it. Ignorant people (dumbasses to be exact) have made many wild poorly-calculated accusations against Lorde including: drugs, her age, her disabilities and other bullshit like that. Yeah Lorde acts weird and oddly, but that's who she is and who the hell she wants to be. None of you untalented mother-fucking shitsticks should give a fuck about the way she lives her life. I agree that Lorde acts bizarrely but I respect that and in fact encourages her to keep being herself. The character she plays and dresses is art. It's a part of her appeal in fact, and she knows it. That's why she doesn't give a fuck to her haters. Bottom line is, no matter how dubious she acts, she's not hurting anyone and isn't lewd to play up the sexuality like all the rest of the cow shit in the music industry (Cyrus the Whore, Levine Adam... ahem...) Besides her physical appearance and actions,  I believe that Lorde is extremely intelligent. A lot of her songs deviate from the grilled-out tired-ass theme of love and sexual lewdness. The lyrics she writes revolve around the more important things in life (most of the time being the detrimental effects of fame, money, and the "lux" life, most evident in Royals, Tennis Court and 400 Lux) And to write such complex melodic lyrics at her tender age, Lorde is definitely at a league of her own when it comes to the delinquent population these days. She is definitely mature enough to realize that there are many hideous disparities in modern life with her dissatisfaction of modern society evident in her songs: Team, BuzzCut Season, White Teeth Teens, and Alone In This World. Lorde also emphasizes uniqueness and inspiration with empowering songs like Glory and Gore. Lorde's material is artistic, dark, unique, meaningful, honest, haunting, and condemning of modern pop music, which ABSOLUTELY DESERVES to be condemned for spawning all the wrong messages to corrupt an emerging generation. Lorde is a glimmer of hope that can save us from the spiraling vortex of musical abomination. On that note, I also hear that Miss Lorde is apparently very vocal about politics. With a mind like that, who wouldn't?

Royals: Royals hands-down is my favorite song of this era and one of my favorite songs of all time. It is ridiculously catchy, memorable, simplistic, meaningful, deep, intellectual, powerful and most of all... simple. Royals is nothing short of everything, I consider it a work of genius. And to think that Lorde wrote the lyrics in half an hour? THAT'S PURE GENIUS I tell you. There's a reason why Royals won so many awards including Lorde's youngest Grammy Award in history. Royals is so simple. All you need is your hands to snap and clap in rhythm and a voice. That's it! :) It's lyrics are very deep however. And to know that so many idiot delinquents these days have no clue what the hell Royals is even about, well that doesn't really surprise me considering that most of them were drugged up and brainwashed on riff-raff, sex-tunes, and twerk-fests.   Basically, Royals starts off by emphasizing Lorde's humble background with the "I've never seen a diamond in the flesh, I'm not proud of my address...no postcode envy" lines. Her "Every Songs like Gold Teeth, Grey Goose" and "Everybody's like Crystal, Maybach, Diamonds on Your Timepiece, Jet Planes, Islands, Tigers on a Gold Leash" lines emphasize how every person and pop music nowadays is in to promoting a superfluous corrupted luxurious style that ensures the spirit of greed and lust. This love for this luxurious lifestyle is emphasized as an unhealthy "affair" as in the line: "We aren't caught in your love affair". The main message of the song cannot be more clear in the phrase: "That Kind Of Lux Just Ain't For Us". Even the dumbest of the dumbshits can understand what the fuck that means. And to all the dipshits complaining how the song is "pretentious, preachy and pompous", may I kindly remind the breed of commonfolk that she emphasizes a FANTASY? F.A.N.T.A.S.Y. Her "Royal Life" is just a fantasy. It's even emphasized in the damn chorus: "AND WE'LL NEVER BE ROYALS! IT DON'T RUN IN OUR BLOOD! LET ME BE YOUR RULER! YOU CAN CALL ME QUEEN BEE! AND BABY I'LL RULE! LET ME LIVE THAT FANTASY!!!" Lorde is just singing about her DREAM. That's all. What is there not to understand? This generation is as dumb as a sack of horse shit.
