Posted Tuesday April 15, 2014 5:44 PM GMT

She's one of the most talented teens in the music industry today and so it is only appropriate that Lorde nab the cover of Teen Vogue.

On the May 2014 issue, the "Royals" singer is wrapped up in a huge plaid bow as she faces the camera with parted lips.

Inside, the 17-year-old Grammy winner talks about a range of topics from fashion to social media to her changing life. Check out highlights from her interview below and look for the full story in the May issue of Teen Vogue.

On her time in the spotlight: "Living in New Zealand, you don’t get these experiences. I spent so much time in my room before. My life is so wild right now. For me to be able to do something I really enjoy and for that to get me out in the world—to South America, to here, to London—every day I kick myself, I’m so lucky.”

On her unique style: "There are a lot of expectations in this industry about looking a certain way and having a certain kind of appeal," she says. "I am feminine, but I really love dressing in boys' clothes too. I guess that's why I get labeled as 'the grumpy girl,' because I don't play into that."

On her not-so-distant childhood: "I was friends with all the boys and kind of bratty, nerdy, and quiet. I was probably really obnoxious to hang out with."
