All The Times Lorde Let Us Peek Into How Her 2020 Is Going

1. Lorde’s Email about BLM

A lot of celebrities both in and out of the United States have been cautious with taking a political stance. Lorde, however, bit the bullet and immediately sent out an email to her fans talking about the ongoing systematic brutality by police across the U.S. She made sure to recognize that her music is inspired by hip-hop and that hip-hop is a genre created and heavily influenced by Black people. Rather than posting on social media, Lorde made sure to communicate with her fans directly while also attending protests, rather than sharing performing performative acts of activism.
