It’s crazy to think that 17-year-old Lorde had the chance to go on tour with Katy Perry and said NO. 

The Royals singer was offered a place on Perry’s Prismatic World Tour in 2014 but because she wanted to be headliner and hated the idea of working for another artist, she turned it down. 

She told KIIS 1065’s The Kyle & Jackie O show she’d rather be independent. 

“I think… 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. SO i want to be headlining my own shows instead of supporting someone else. Which i think it fair enough.”
