Lorde continues to exude confidence and wisdom well beyond her years.
The 17-year-old New Zealand pop star, who quickly scaled to stardom when she topped charts and snagged Song of the Year at the 2014 Grammy Awards with "Royals," tweeted a photoshopped photo of her skin next to an untouched picture showing blemishes from the same concert, side-by-side.
"I find this curious," the teen starlet told fans. "Two photos from today, one edited so my skin is perfect and one real."
In addition to condemning this industry practice, Lorde reminded us that "flaws are ok."

Replies quickly flooded in. "I love you for this," tweeted one fan. "Actually when I saw you I thought your skin was really pretty, beautiful flaws," said another.
The photos have been retweeted more than 50,000 times.
Isn't it amazing that this stunning teen celebrity is teaching US about letting go of perfection?
