Lorde Takes Aim At Paparazzo For Ruining Her Life


Teenage pop star Lorde is not happy with the paparazzo who are currently making her life miserable.

The singer was forced to miss out iHeartRadio Music Awards last week, May 1, as she was recovering from illness in New Zealand. The star took to Twitter.com to post a picture of a man who is, allegedly, stalking her and won’t leave her alone.

When she posted a photo of him online, she also wrote, “this man has been stalking me, photographing me and refusing me privacy. i am scared of him.”

Lorde adds, “this should not be an accepted standard for young women or anyone in this industry… i refuse to stay complicit and i refuse to stay passive about men systematically subjecting me to extreme fear… i understand that this comes with the territory. i do not understand why I should be complacent.”

She also posted on her Twitter.com page, on which she has a cool 1.5 million followers, photos of photographer Simon Runting, along with a link to his Facebook profile and some of his handiwork, including invasive photos of Rihanna in her hotel room in 2013.

Lorde isn’t the first celebrity to aim at Runting for his bad practices.

Rihanna has also been furious and posted a shot he took of her on her hotel balcony to Instagram.com with the caption, “I hate these n—az more than the Nazi,” as a reference to Kanye’s Flashing Lights.

However, she later removed the image.
