New Zealand singing sensation Lorde created a social media frenzy recently when she announced that she’s putting her new recording on hold while she deals with the death of her dog.
The immediate reaction of this writer was not supportive. I shared a link to an article in UK newspaper The Independent titled “Lorde delays new album release after death of dog” and commented “Sorry, is it just me or can others see a problem with this? 7.6 million followers (presumably mostly young) are influenced by her. A little more resilience may be in order. Am I being too harsh?”
