It can’t be easy dating a musical phenomenon. Just ask New Zealand photographer James K Lowe. He recently wrote a blog post about life with Lorde and shed some light on their seemingly rock-solid relationship. “Since originally sitting down to write this post, Ella has become a two time grammy winner,” the Kiwi snapper begins. “Currently she is on the opposite side of the world on tour. As much as I miss her, I couldn’t be prouder of what she has achieved so far.” Sweet, right?
Lowe then moves on to the downside of dating in the spotlight. “I’ve experienced being a target of the tabloids, finding moments I thought I was in safe hands splattered all over the internet, being pushed and shoved, or watching others get pushed and shoved by paparazzi just to get what they think they’re entitled to,” he laments. But it’s not all doom and gloom. Lorde’s other half enthuses about the joys of air travel, conversations over coffee and meeting new people.
The budding blogger finishes his post with some sweet words for his sweetheart. “I’ve found a little inspiration from new faces. People I look up to. People whose work I admire so much,” he writes. “For all of this I have to thank the one I look up to the most. Who I admire the most. Who still fills the little voids I try to avoid.” Yeah, he sounds like a keeper.
