She's 16-years-old. Beautiful. Amazing voice. Sir Elton John says "you just open your mouth in wonder" about her. Her real name is Ella Yelich-O'Connor, but you know her as Lorde, the new Queen atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart. While other kids her age are addicted to their smartphone, tablet and other teens wandering the hallways at school, this New Zealander has an obsession with aristocracy. "Everything that happened to a royal family in, like, the 17th century is just absurd, but cool" she told USA Today in an article published on Sept. 25. Hence the title of her song "Royals" which has claimed the top spot of Billboard's hit chart. By the way, she knocked off another teen Miley Cyrus who was number one for 2 weeks with Wrecking Ball". Which of these two teens would you bet your hard earned money on for the future?
