She continues to wow the world with her amazing vocals, but while most are impressed with her singing talents, others believe Lorde isn't being truthful about everything.

While stealing the spotlight at this year's Grammy Awards, a few Twitter users started to accuse the music prodigy of lying about her young age.

Immediately after the rumors began to spread, the website The Hairpin cleared the air by posting a copy of Lorde's birth certificate from New Zealand to prove that the "Royals" hitmaker is, indeed, 17 years old.

The website managed to post the entire document, which included her full name [Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor], birth place, ethnicity and more importantly her date of birth, November 7, 1996, proving she's a teenager.

Meanwhile the singer, who is well aware of the recent accusations, joked to Vanity Fair recently by stating,"Hi, I'm Ella, and I'm actually 45."
