Instagram user gabatron9 commented on a photo the singer posted this week, asking if fans “will ever get another album” or if they should “just give up on [her] as an artist.” Lorde didn’t mince words with her response. 

“Give up on me if you want to!” she replied. “I’ve worked like a dog for a year making this thing great for you guys.” 

Editor Michael Cragg grabbed screenshots of the exchange, which took place Wednesday.
