Lorde posts rare selfie | Daily Mail Online

She’s known for her androgynous fashion choices and often swamps her physique in masculine suits.  

But on Thursday, Lorde posted a rare selfie of herself in sexy swimwear. 

Dressed in skimpy pink bikini, the 21-year-old is pictured wearing a pink shirt over her shoulders which is left open to reveal her taut stomach and toned thighs. 

Now that’s different! Lorde posts rare selfie of herself in a skimpy pink bikini after revealing she’s beginning to feel ‘strong’ in more feminine outfits

The Tennis Court crooner previously admitted that she is beginning to gravitate towards more feminine choices as she grows more comfortable in her own skin.  

‘As I get older and a little bit more comfortable in myself, I’m like: ‘Yeah, I will wear that really pretty, feminine outfit’, and I’ll feel strong in that as well,’ the singer, real name Ella Yelich-O’Connor, told News.com.au. 

‘But I do love a perfect pair of pants, the perfect collared shirt, and I wear sneakers, heavy shoes… often I’ll buy a pair of men’s pants or whatever. I don’t discriminate in that way.’

'As I get older and a little bit more comfortable in myself, I'm like: "Yeah, I will wear that really pretty, feminine outfit", and I'll feel strong in that as well,' the singer, real name Ella Yelich-O'Connor, told News.com.au

Lorde recently revealed she has been letting her hair down since splitting from her boyfriend of three-years, James Lowe.

 ‘I basically turned 19 and the world was like: “Alright, we’re going to toss everything up in the air and it’s all going to come down in a really crazy way,”‘ she told Vogue Australia earlier this year.

The Royals singer continued: ‘All of a sudden I moved out of home, I went through a break-up [with her boyfriend of three years, photographer James Lowe]. It felt like every day and every night I was totally having my mind blown by all these new things. I really felt like a young adult for the first time, kind of socially…

‘That period was so creative I just was like: ‘Oh, my God.’ I just couldn’t write it all down fast enough. So that’s very much what the record centered around. 

She explained that she enjoyed late nights out whilst she was making her second album, Melodrama.

‘The whole time I was writing it [Melodrama] I was going out a lot, I was partying a lot, I was going to a lot of shows. I wanted to just be dancing all the time. It was almost like I just want to make the stuff that I want to dance to on Saturday or whatever, which was a super-new thing for me.

‘I think as you do grow up, you go through a break-up and be like: “I just don’t want to think about it and I want to drink tequila and dance to Nelly Furtado.”‘ 

 Her first smash hit and debut track Royals, was released in 2013.
