Katy Perry

So I want to be headlining my own shows instead of supporting someone else

Teenage pop star Lorde turned down the chance to head out on tour with Katy Perry because she hates the idea of working as another artist's support act.

The Royals star was offered a place on Perry's Prismatic World Tour this year (14), but Lorde snubbed the offer as she wants to be headlining her own shows instead of backing another singer.

She tells KIIS 1065's The Kyle and Jackie O Show, "I think... in the really early stages of an artist's career it's important for them to establish themselves for themselves... I'm just basically really stubborn and I want to be really independent. So I want to be headlining my own shows instead of supporting someone else. Which I think is fair enough".
