Lorde, is that you? Or Merida from Brave?

Lorde is the on the cover of ELLE's personal style issue, and she looks fantastic. Those clothes. That makeup. That hair! That hair... that looks a lot like Brave's Merida. Right?

In this issue of ELLE, Lorde talks all about standing up for herself, not being afraid of expressing her opinions and showing women that, yes, they can feel confident, too.

"People have told me that I've helped them feel confident, like they can say things they want to say," she says. "They can talk about feminism in class without people calling them a lesbian. That's so amazing that I can make someone feel like that."

Basically, she's just an all-around badass — much like Brave's Merida. Yes, it's official: IRL, Lorde is Merida from Brave.
