Lorde answers questions from Dazed readers in her bedroom

Our summer issue cover star says she wants ‘all young women to feel safe, to feel like they have a right to learn, to not be afraid to speak and I want them to be a bunch of badasses and tear shit up’

Ella Yelich-O'Connor is a force of nature. The Kiwi artist more formally known as Lorde wowed Dazed readers when she graced the cover of our Girls Rule The World issue, shot by Ryan McGinley and interviewed by Lena Dunham. Lorde didn't stop there, inviting Dazed readers to ask her questions on Facebook just before she nipped out for ramen. She filmed the whole thing in her bedroom for us, inviting us into her real world to give us some real talk.

You stepped up and asked her the important shit – what have you always wanted to do that you've not done yet? What's the strangest dream you've ever had? And what would you change about the life of young women today?

Her answer to the last question isn't a bad manifesto at all. Watch the video below.
