Lorde has endured many troll comments and hate surrounding her dancing. Many have deemed it "demonic" and "exotic", with others scrutinizing it completely. Lorde explained she was ok with this in an interview saying "I guess I've always been a pretty 'dance to the beat of my own drum' type person.  I was always that kid in the neighborhood who'd wear these crazy outfits...dancing to [music] walking down to the street."[1] Previosuly, she responded to trolls after her performance on SNL saying "one day i will do a normal dance choreographed by a nice person and I will look more like your other favourite performers but we have not yet reached that day ¯\_(ツ)_/¯."
