Lorde Lands in Sydney

Posted Sunday February 2, 2014 11:56 AM GMT

Not letting fame get to her head, Lorde lugged her own bags through Sydney airport in Australia with her mother on Sunday (February 2).

The "Royals" singer dressed in all black carrying a Bally tote with some reflecting shades as she gave a smile to paparazzi while making her way through the crowds with the assistance of security.

That same day, the 17-year-old Grammy winner reached a social media milestone, thanking her huge number of Twitter followers with the tweet, "1M. THANKYOU."

Last week, Lorde sent a special message to fans in her home country of New Zealand, taking out a full page ad in the paper with a message reading in part: "Finding out about me online or in between these pages or in your headphones, without your support there's no way I would ever have gotten to stand in the middle of the Staples Centre and perform in my school shoes."
