Teenage pop star Lorde has taken aim at a paparazzo who is making her life difficult.
The Royals singer, who was forced to miss out on last week's (01May14) iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles because she was recovering from illness at home in New Zealand, has taken to Twitter.com to blast the snapper who won't leave her alone.
Posting a photo of the paparazzo online, she writes, "this man has been stalking me, photographing me and refusing me privacy. i am scared of him."
Lorde adds, "this should not be an accepted standard for young women or anyone in this industry... i refuse to stay complicit and i refuse to stay passive about men systematically subjecting me to extreme fear... i understand that this comes with the territory. i do not understand why I should be complacent."
