Lorde turned down chance to open for Katy Perry

By Chelsea Lewis ,

The chance to open up for Katy Perry on her tour for PRISM would be a once in a lifetime opportunity for any up and coming musician. However, for Lorde, the chance was easy to pass up.

In a recent interview with Australian radio station Kiis 1065, the "Royals" singer explained why she turned down the offer to open for Perry, notes NME.

"I want to be headlining my own shows instead of supporting someone else," said Lorde.

The singer also explained that she was still in the early stages of her career and didn't want opinions from others.

"I'm in the really early stages of an artist's career it's important for them to establish themselves for themselves," the "Team" singer explained. "I'm just basically really stubborn and I want to be really independent."

The singer seems to be doing fine on her own, she recently announced an Australian tour and had Bruce Springsteen cover her single "Royals" at a recent show. Lorde explained that the cover made her tear up because it was such a high honor to be covered by The Boss himself,
Rolling Stone reported.
