Lorde has sung a parody of herself from 'South Park'.

The 17-year-old 'Royals' singer proved that she has a good sense of humour after she sang an excerpt of a song from the cartoon series 'South Park' - which claimed that Lorde was actually a middle aged man.

Talking to New Zealand's TV3, she joked: ''I was thinking, 'Yeah he has a moustache ... I mean I have a moustache, but is it that prominent?' But it was someone's dad pretending to be me.

''We actually, in my hotel room, went, 'Ya ya ya ya I am Lorde! Ya ya ya!' for like an hour, because that's what they do on the episode.''

At the time the episode of 'South Park' went live (09.10.14) she tweeted: ''i have officially been the subject of 2 south park episodes and that is weird and cool (sic)''

The pop star also admitted to TV3 that Twitter has played a big role in finding the artists for 'The Hunger Games' soundtrack because it meant that she able to contact them directly.

She said: ''I have been putting together 'The Hunger Games' soundtrack and probably half the artists on there, I sent them a DM [Direct Message]. Or a selfie on Instagram on private, saying, 'Can you email me?'

''It really is easy to reduce the steps in talking to someone and people appreciate it if you talk to people one-on-one. And I do it with fans too, send them a DM. They appreciate it and it's cool.''
