Lorde has revealed that she turned down the offer of supporting Katy Perry on her upcoming PRISM tour, as she wishes to establish herself as an "independent" artist in her own right.

The New Zealand singer, who shot to fame in 2013 with the release of her global smash 'Royals', told an Australian radio station that she wants to be headlining her own shows whilst she's still in the early stages of her career.

"I think... in the really early stages of an artist's career it's important for them to establish themselves for themselves," she told Kiis 1065. "I'm just basically really stubborn and I want to be really independent. So I want to be headlining my own shows instead of supporting someone else. Which I think is fair enough."

It was recently announced Lorde's debut album Pure Heroine has surpassed the 1 million sales mark, making it the first debut by a female singer since Adele's 19 to reach the milestone. 

Lorde has won 2 Grammys and a BRIT Award for Best International Female Solo Artist so far this year. Currently performing shows in the US, she's set to embark on a tour of Australia in April - hopefully she'll be heading to the UK afterwards.
