Lorde’s boyfriend James Lowe has broken his silence on how it felt to be attacked by internet trolls.

The  24-year-old photographer from New Zealand said dating the two-time Grammy winner has been something of a whirlwind.

“My life is probably a lot different now,” James admitted. “Jared Leto said that fame doesn’t change you, it changes everyone around you.”

“While I’m not the center of attention here (and f***, the times I have [been], it’s never been fun), I do become aware of the people around me and their transparency,” he added.

James, who reportedly worked for Lorde as a photographer before the pair began dating, has been the subject of some hateful and racist internet attention in the past.

Last summer, fans of Justin Bieber and One Direction took to Twitter to attack James, after rumours surfaced that Lordes had called the pop stars ugly.

One internet troll wrote, “Lorde says 1D and Justin are ugly? LOOK AT YOUR F****** UGLY BOYFRIEND! HE IS SKINNY AND UGLY LOLZ!!’

In his blog James spoke of, “finding moments I thought I was in safe hands splattered all over the internet, being pushed and shoved, or watching others get pushed and shoved by paparazzi just to get what they think they’re entitled to.”

But despite the tough times that come with having a girlfriend in the spotlight, James said he can’t help but be very proud of her.

“As much as I miss her, I couldn’t be prouder of what she has achieved so far,” he said.



Lorde has told her fans to pucker up for same-sex church members who plan to picket outside her concert this Friday.

It seems members of the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) have beef with the Kiwi singer for being in favour of LGBT rights.

The outspoken singer  recently responded to a lesbian jab about her friendship with Taylor Swift. When a radio show host joked about the two being “‘Ellen’ together,” Lorde replied by asking the interviewer, “Is there something wrong with lesbians? Is that what you’re trying to say?”

In response to news of the protest, the Royals singer tweeted, “Hahaha omg just found out the westboro baptist church are going to picket my show in Kansas City,” telling concert-goers, “Everyone wear rainbow clothing to that show.”

Lorde added in another post, “Everyone try to kiss church members who are the same sex as you they will so love it.”

While the tweets have since been removed, the message to Lordes fans is already out there, which could spell big trouble at the Kansas City concert.
