Lorde hits out at men on Twitter

Lorde has hit out at men who “underestimate her skill” in a rant seeming to address her recent split from her long-term manager Scott Maclachlan.

The 18-year-old singer seemed to address the recent news she had parted ways with her manager of seven years, Scott Maclachlan, by berating “men” on Twitter.

In the two tweets, she wrote: “hey, men – do me and yourselves a favour, and don’t underestimate my skill

“yes, i’m a young lass, but i’m also making the best decisions for me each day. #stayeducated (sic).”

The ‘Royals’ hitmaker reportedly split from the manager – who signed her to Universal Music at the age of 11 – a few weeks ago, although no details about the decision to part ways have been revealed, with Scott’s company Saiko Management declining to comment on the issue.

Meanwhile Lorde – who released her debut album ‘Pure Heroine’ in 2013, aged 16 – is currently recording her second album with producer Joel Little, and recently updated her fans on the progress they have made by writing on her Tumblr account.

She wrote: “i took a few months off at the beginning of this year, which was so great – i did a bunch of swimming and driving around and being salty – and now i’m just getting into making the next body of work, which is very exciting and scary but SO VALIDATING (sic).”
