The Real Reason Lorde Turned Down Katy Perry’s Tour
Lorde will undoubtedly pack The Fillmore in Detroit this Sunday and she doesn’t need any help. Last year, Katy Perry reportedly reached out to the rising pop star with a proposal to have her to open the ‘Prismatic Tour’ this summer, but Lorde said no!
Why? An up-and-coming artist, asked to open for a huge pop star and she turns it down? Lorde told an Australian radio show (via The Independent):
“In the really early stages of an artist’s career, it’s important for them to establish themselves for themselves. I’m just basically really stubborn and I want to be really independent”.
Well, it paid off. Lorde has already sold out her entire US tour and the show Sunday in Detroit sold out in just 10 minutes.
Do you think Lorde made the right decision in turning down the chance to open for Katy Perry?
