Lorde’s boyfriend James Lowe talks about the popstar

LORDE’S boyfriend has broken his silence on what it’s like to date one of the world’s biggest music superstars.

In a post entitled “everybody returns someday”, 24-year-old James Lowe mused about how his life has changed since Lorde — real name Ella Yelich O’Connor — has risen to superstardom.

Writing on his website One Field, Lowe said: “Since originally sitting down to write this post, Ella has become a two time Grammy winner. She has taken home a Brit too. Currently she is on the opposite side of the world on tour,” he writes of the 17-year-old star. “As much as I miss her I couldn’t be prouder of what she has achieved so far. If you are lucky enough to attend one of her shows on this current tour, you’ll experience more than just her voice.”

But the Auckland-based photographer also spoke of the downsides of fame, perhaps alluding to the controversy around him being branded “ugly” by internet trolls.

“Jared Leto said that fame doesn’t change you, it changes everyone around you. While I’m not the centre of attention here (and f—k, the times I have, it’s never been fun), I do become aware of the people around me and their transparency. They fail to hide it. I’ve experienced being a target of the tabloids, 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.”

However, Lowe says he still maintains a positive outlook despite being thrust into the public eye.

“While I’m dragging on about the negative aspects, they are only a smart part of my world now. There is a bright, shining silver lining to this thing … I’ve been able to tell tales of the many amazing people I’ve met along the way – from fellow photographers, to artists I’ve always admired and never thought I’d get to meet, let alone have a simple thing like coffee with.

“More importantly, I’ve found a little inspiration from new faces. People I look up to. People whose work I admire so much. For all of this I have to thank the one I look up to the most. Who I admire the most. Who still fills the little voids I try to avoid.”
