Lorde, like Jezebel, is part of the photoshop police, but the singer/songwriter/everyteen focuses on her own face mostly. Exhibit A was that time she posted two photos on Twitter from the same day, one of which showed acne scars, the other did not. Exhibit B is today's Tweet that reads, "apart from the fact that i'm pretty sure this magazine gave me a new nose (:|), i really like this photo [sic]." She doesn't name the media source for the photo because she's classy and a proponent of self-acceptance. And an emoticon wizard. Win win win.
