Lorde Deletes All But a Few Posts on Her Instagram and Twitter: 'Less Is Always More'
Looks like Lorde has been up to some spring cleaning lately when it comes to her social media. Eagle eyes were quick to notice that the pop star went on a deleting spree on her Instagram a few days ago, and subsequently on her Twitter earlier this week. Now only three Instagram posts and two tweets remain, leaving fans to speculate whether or not she has a forthcoming project on the horizon.
The Instagram posts that have yet to bite the dust include a shot of the words "trust me" scribbled across a black screen, a crowd shot from a 1967 Marxist philosophy work called The Society of the Spectacle and a blurry action shot of Lorde during her April 4 show in New York City. Her two remaining tweets are both from last November, quoting French poet Arthur Rimbaud.
Although her Melodrama Tour is nearly wrapping up, fans have to wonder if Lorde is implementing a technique used by the likes of Ed Sheeran and The 1975, who both wiped out their social media a couple years ago before making stellar returns. However, the "Green Light" singer commented on her activity herself, and it seems she's just looking for some simplicity.
"No stress just pulling back the curtain again for a moment... will keep u posted. Love u all so much more than u know," Lorde said in the comments of a fan's Instagram post, according to MTV News. "More than ok! Not needing to recover or pull back from u guys, it’s just what I feel is cleanest and most true to me as an artist & musician in 2018. Will still be creeping on u all and commenting, just not going to be posting endless content. Less is always more."
