Lorde has some flattering words for rapper Kanye West.  In a new interview with The Guardian, the New Zealand teen singer says Kanye recently reached out to tell her he was a fan of her music. 

The 17-year-old appreciates his approval, saying that "if the school is pop," then Kanye is "[her] school principal."  She admits however that she only has one age group in mind when she writes.  Lorde says "the only people [she] cares about liking her music" are people her own age. 

She also discusses how her being on social media growing up has enlightened the image of herself as a pop star.  She recalls making her Facebook page exactly how she wanted at age 13, saying "That's all the Internet is - doing your own PR." 

Lorde will be back on tour in the U.S. starting in September.
