Singer Lorde worries she may not have a career by the time she reaches 25.

The 17-year-old singer said she isn't sure people will care about her music when she grows up, reports Contactmusic.

"Since I started making music, a lot was made of how old I was and it made me think about, what happens when I'm 25? Will people still like what I'm doing? Will it still be important if I'm not this hyper-youthful being?

"It's stupid, I know I'm being silly, but I can't help it. It's just one of those things. I'll get over it," she said.

The Team hitmaker said that she was conscious of the pressures to look perfect in the music industry.

"I am a young person and I know how it feels to have those pressures of not looking a certain way. A lot of people have misconceptions about this industry and how you're supposed to look. I don't think I should have to look perfect all the time.

"I definitely think about the imprint I'm leaving on people my age --I don't want to look particularly girls. I'm sensitive to how women are portrayed because sometimes it kind of sucks."
