Lorde 'almost pushed over' by 'lecherous' New Zealand paparazzi
IF New Zealand's not treating you well Lorde, you're always welcome here.
The Kiwi star this morning teed off on the "lecherous gaze" of the media after being swamped by paparazzi at Auckland Airport.
She said she and her family were "almost pushed over" so local media could get their shots.
"Bit of a sad welcome if I'm honest," she tweeted. "There is a difference between (attention) from fans, which I love, and the constant, often lecherous gaze that I'm subjected to in this industry."
Fresh home with two Grammys, the 17-year-old added "it just sucks when you see that in your tiny home country where you previously felt safe."
