She explained: "She's just magnetic. You can't not look at Rihanna. I would buy anything Rihanna sold me."

Responding to the interviewer's surprise at her support of Rihanna, she said: "It's the same way that I idolise naked Grace Jones on the cover of Island Life. The way Rihanna embodies being a sexual woman feels very 'her'.

"I don't think she wears Swarovski crystals to please other people," the 17-year-old continued. "I think she wears them because she's like: 'I feel amazing. You better look. I'm obviously the best-looking thing in this room.' She's so fearless and confident. I just love her."

Lorde enjoyed critical and commercial success with her debut album Pure Heroine last year, and recently promised that her next record will be "totally different".
