Lorde has sold out all 16 dates on her upcoming US tour, which is due to kick off in March. 

The 'Royals' star revealed the news to fans on her Twitter, saying "you sold out my US tour." The North American shows will kick off March 3 in Texas, stopping for dates in New York, Toronto, Chicago, Boston and Detroit, finishing up at the end of March in California.

Lorde, real name Ella Yelich-O'Connor, will be performing at the Grammys on January 26. The 17 year old is nominated for song of the year, record of the year, best pop solo performance and best pop vocal album. 

Despite her seemingly endless rise to fame, the singer recently revealed to LOOK magazine she'll never follow in the footsteps of Lady Gaga, Katy Perry et al by nicknaming her fans. "That's the worst," she said. "I find it grating to lump everyone into a really awkward, pun-centric name. People joke about it on Twitter. "'You should call us The Disciples.' Never!"

Below: Lorde, we salute you - the 10 best things she said in 2013:

  • When asked if she wants to work with David Guetta: "No. Fuck no. He's so gross."

  • "I think women who say, 'No, I'm not a feminist - I love men,' I think that is just...You don't know what it means. You think it means that, 'I don't shave under my arms, I burn my bras. Fuck men!' How could you be so uneducated, and so unwilling to learn about something which is so important to you?"

  • "Taylor Swift is so flawless, and so unattainable, and I don't think it's breeding anything good in young girls."

  • "Everyone is so obsessed with how everything looks, how the party will look through a lens the next day. We all have Tumblr and we all have Instagram and everything. People care so much about it because, now, any random can be famous on the internet if their world looks good on Tumblr."

  • "She’s great, but I listened to that Lana Del Rey record and the whole time I was just thinking it’s so unhealthy for young girls to be listening to, you know: "I'm nothing without you." This sort of shirt-tugging, desperate, don’t leave me stuff."

  • On ex-Disney stars: "The difference between those kids and me is that I grew up completely normally and went to parties and had that experience. I am way less inclined to be like, ‘Look! I’m f**king mental!'"

  • "I'm a feminist so certain things about music I find frustrating. I think pop is scarily powerful. There are a lot of shock tactics these days: people trying to outdo each other, which will probably culminate in two people f**king onstage at the Grammys."

  • "I've always really liked Kanye and I met him on Jools Holland. He was wearing a grill on his lower teeth and I had this barely suppressed desire to rub the grill. I didn't rub the grill."

  • "I think there's a funny culture in music that's only happened over the last 15 years, that if you have an opinion about something in music that isn't 100-percent good, you're a 'hater,' even if you have perfectly reasonable grounds for that critique."

  • "I love rap music because it just makes me feel way cooler than I really am."
