Lorde Wins Music Prize, Gives Money Away

Getty-Kevin Winter

There are a lot of reasons to love Lorde.

At the ripe young age of 17, she is a great writer, singer, and artist. She lives the ‘cool’ like it was born in her genetic coding, turning down lame endorsements that could have already earned her more millions. She a New Zealander (something I find to be very cool).

And, she’s also a philanthropist. She won her countries’ prestigious Taite Award, and true to super cool form, is giving away her winnings.

She wasn’t there to accept the award, as she had gigs in Las Vegas but chimed in via video, where she informed the other nominees that she wanted to split the prize money ($10,000) and the studio time equally amongst them. Watch her acceptance video here.

She also mentioned that if they didn’t want it, ‘that’s cool, too.’

Very cool.

See Lorde meet George Brett, the inspiration for 'Royals'
