Literary Lorde

At our photo shoot for Lorde's new Rolling Stone cover, the articulate teen chatted about everything from her literary influences to her style icons to her stubbornness when it comes to guiding her own career. "People don't like girls who don't smile," she told contributing editor Rob Tannenbaum in our cover story — but she ventured a few grins on our set. Talking about authors she admires, she says, "I am really into how words sound out loud, so I was always the kid who would, like, read the page of the book to herself in her room over and over and over."
