One of the coolest things about New Zealand singer-songwriter, Ella Yelich-O'Connor (better known as, Lorde) is that she was born in 1996. That's right, people... she's only 17!  I have been absolutely obsessed with her song "Royals" for a while now and can't wait for her debut album which is scheduled to be released on September 30.
