We Now Have PROOF That Lorde Was A Child Once

She was probably still cooler than most of us, though.

I don't know about you all, but I always imagined that Lorde just appeared one day, fully formed, like Athena sprouting from Zeus' head. There now exists tangible proof, however, that this was not the case. Yes, she was gap-toothed kid once. She was young. I was just as surprised as you.

Ella uploaded the above photo the other day in honor of her sister, Jerry Florence's, 21st birthday. Lorde is the smaller one, we assume -- although they do both look uncannily similar. I'm not entirely convinced there's no cloning afoot here.

That's about all I have to say about that.
