How tall is Lorde? Lorde is 5 feet, 5 inches tall, according to, and if that height measurement is correct, she’s slightly taller than the average New Zealand female. According to Wikipedia, the typical Kiwi woman stands 5 feet, 4 inches, and there’s certainly nothing typical about Lorde. The teen sensation rocketed out of Auckland on the strength of “Royals,” the hit single that topped the charts around the world. Originally released in 2012, “Royals” later appeared on “Pure Heroine,” Lorde’s acclaimed 2013 debut album. Despite her less-than-statuesque frame, the 17-year-old singer and songwriter is one of the biggest stars on the planet, and in 2014, she picked up two Grammy Awards. In terms of pop-cultural influence, she’s a giant.

Lorde’s 5-foot, 5-inch frame suits her personality, as she doesn’t try to pass herself as a sexy model-type singer. “Royals” was a smash because it’s smart and catchy, just like the rest of the songs on “Pure Heroine,” and Lorde has been described by some as a spokeswoman for her generation. She’s certainly no stranger to controversy, and since becoming a superstar, she’s clashed repeatedly with the media and various pop stars. At one point, she was on record as dissing country-pop idol Taylor Swift, but the two have since become friends, despite their differing styles of fashion and music.

How tall is Lorde compared to other female pop stars. The aforementioned Swift has got quite a bit of height on her, as Taylor checks in at 5 feet, 10 inches tall. Lorde is, however, the same height as Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez. And Lorde has a pretty good size advantage on Nicki Minaj, who stands a mere 5 feet, 2 inches tall. Lorde will need to catch a late growth spurt if she wants to catch Beyonce or Rihanna, however. Queen Bey stans 5 feet, 7 inches, while her Caribbean counterpart is an inch taller.
