So far teenage pop sensation Lorde hasn’t rushed out to buy any gold teeth. Or gold bling. Or gold leashes for her tigers. Or any tigers, for that matter.

But the New Zealand singer jokes that her hit single “Royals” is pretty ironic to her now — as the things that once seemed out of reach are now being thrust at her daily.

Grey Goose vodka? Anytime she wants it. Diamond timepieces? Just say when and where, babe. Islands and Cadillacs? Just sign on the dotted line and it’s yours!

Lorde decided to address the contradiction this way: “The irony is not lost on me,” she said.

“I definitely don’t feel like I’m living in a particularly extravagant sort of way,” she continued. “Which I think is good, because I think for me, personally, if I was thrown into that kind of thing I wouldn’t know how to deal with it.”

Lorde then shared this piece of advice she tells herself: “I think it’s good to kind of keep on keeping on,” she said. “Just do what you have normally done, and sort things into a stride.”

Lorde said similar things last month. Back then, she expressed to Interview Magazine that she finds it difficult to understand the feelings of craving luxury so often referenced in rap songs.

“Around the middle of last year I started listening to a lot of rap,” she said, “like Nicki Minaj and Drake, as well as pop singers like Lana Del Rey. They all sing about such opulence, stuff that just didn’t relate to me…

“Or to anyone else I know,” she laughed.
