The 17-year-old musician began writing music at age 12.

Her parents have supported her and helped her balance her career with her school work.

“My parents are really onto it; they know what young people need. My mum takes my iPhone off me at night, because I need to do homework and sleep, otherwise I'd spend all night on Facebook and Instagram,” Lorde told Interview Magazine.

Lorde performed at the MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto on Sunday, where she won International Video of the Year.
