Lorde is no longer a teen popstar as she celebrated her 20th birthday this week and she took to Facebook to lament saying goodbye to her teenage years and also teased fans about her upcoming album.

She posted a lengthy message on her Facebook page about entering her twenties in a post titled "A NOTE FROM THE DESK OF A NEWBORN ADULT."

She wrote in part, "I was 16 when most of us met. Can you believe it? I laugh thinking about that me now - that glossy idiot god, princess of her childhood streets, handmade and ugly and sure of herself. All my life I've been obsessed with adolescence, drunk on it. Even when I was little, I knew that teenagers sparkled. I knew they knew something children didn't know, and adults ended up forgetting. Since 13 I've spent my life building this giant teenage museum, mausoleum maybe, dutifully wolfishly writing every moment down, and repeating it all back like folklore. And now there isn't any more of it."

Aside from talking about her lost childhood she also had a more positive message about her forthcoming music. She wrote, "I want nothing more than to spill my guts RIGHT NOW about the whole thing - I want you to see the album cover, pore over the lyrics (the best I've written in my life), touch the merch, experience the live show. I can hardly stop myself from typing out the name. I just need to keep working a while longer to make it as good as it can be. You'll have to hold on. The big day is not tomorrow, or even next month realistically, but soon. I know you understand." Read the full post here.
