"The second you think too hard about it, you'll just go insane," Lorde shared of how she "copes" with befriending her idols. "It's best to be like, 'We're in wonderland and it's just what happens around here.'"

"Also," she added, "I don't hang out with these people at all."

"Hang on!" Sunrise co-host David Koch interrupted. "You're part of Taylor Swift's squad, all the magazines tell us!"

"You know, you make friends in different places," Lorde said, shaking her head at the idea of being part of the squad. "But I think for the most part I'm not, like, calling my idols for advice necessarily."

The 20-year-old singer said that she instead looks to her parents for guidance through life. "My parents are so inspiring in different ways. We're a close family, and we're very different. My mom's a poet and very emotional; I'm a reader because of her," she explained. "My dad's an engineer -- very methodical and very calm. I take a lot from both of them, I think."

Of her sophomore album, Melodrama, Lorde said she feels "really grateful" for fans' support.

"It's very scary putting out a second album, but it could not have gone better," she gushed. "It sounds very different to [my first album], Pure Heroine, and a lot of the sentiments are very different, but it is still me, and it's still me sort of thrashing my arms around and singing like my heart depends on it. I think people sorta get that about it."

The "Green Light" singer kicks off her 60-date world tour in Manchester, England, on Sept. 26, before wrapping up on April 15, 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee. "I am such a different performer than I was when I was 16. I feel like I can really lead a show with nothing but my body and a microphone and a pair of sneakers," Lorde confessed. "The music lends itself more to a live atmosphere. It's stuff you can actually dance to."
