Lorde Hints On Dropping Her Fourth Album ‘L4’ In 2023

Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor, professionally known as Lorde, hinted that her upcoming album ‘L4’ could be released in 2023.

In an interview with New Zealand magazine Ensemble, Lorde revealed that the follow-up to 2021’s ‘Solar Power’ is already in the works. The 26-year-old singer told the magazine, “It has taken me quite a while to start working on it. I do just take a long time… I do a lot of research, I write a lot down.”

When asked if fans can expect the same length of time before her next release, Lorde responds coyly but optimistically. “Although there’s a big chunk of work before I actually start writing music,” the singer goes on to say that “it’s always my intention to move as quickly as I fucking can, and then that ends up taking different forms. But I’m really trying on this one. I don’t want to be kept waiting.” 

Later, when the singer was asked if the new album might come out this year, Lorde simply responded, “Anything could happen.”

Furthermore, in the interview, Lorde reflects on the fan reaction to her third album, ‘Solar Power,’ which was decidedly more mixed than her first two albums, ‘Pure Heroine’ and ‘Melodrama.’ 

The singer’s first album Pure Heroine was released on September 2013. The album garnered a lot of attention for depicting suburban teenage disillusionment and criticisms of pop culture. The album sold over a million copies in the United States in February 2014, making it the first female artist’s debut album to accomplish the feat since Adele’s 2008 album 19.

Similarly, Lorde’s second album Melodrama was released on June 16, 2017, by Lava and Republic Records and distributed by Universal. She received a Grammy nomination for Album of the Year for her second album at the 60th ceremony.

However, Lorde’s third album was not as successful. Although the album received mixed reviews from fans, Lorde’s deliberate change of direction effectively reclaimed the narrative, and Solar Power was a huge success in that regard. Now, the singer’s fans are looking forward to her fourth album.

Fans’ reaction to Lorde’s new album 

On February 12, 2023, Pop Faction posted the news that Lorde was working on her upcoming album. Many of Lorde’s fans are ecstatic after hearing about her upcoming fourth album. 

Following the post, one social media user commented, “so ready for her to serve uss,” while another person wrote, “I hope it’s more melodrama vibes.”

While many Lorde fans are excited about her next album, some believe she should take time to create a good album. One person said, “please don’t rush your artistry and creativity!! She literally said ‘quality over quantity’ she should stick to that.”

Similarly, one Reddit user posted her picture and wrote, “Lore hints at L4 possibly being released in 2023 in a new interview with Ensemble!” After seeing her post, one person said, “I’m excited but also kinda sad, I feel like she lost the support of her label, in the sense that they allowed her to take as much time as needed between melodrama + solar power (granted covid happened so that was def a factor as well…).”

The social media user added, “I feel like she has a lot of label pressure now because Solar Power underperformed. Time restraints for an artist can be good though, less time to doubt yourself.”

Connor Brennan On His Trans Sister And Her Coming Out Story

Connor Brennan, known for his appearances on The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise, recently sparked curiosity among fans with his trans-Pride anklet.

Connor candidly talked about his sister Deirdre Brennan’s coming out story. He reflected on his sister’s coming out experience as a transgender individual within their family. 

Recounting the events in 2017 during a Christmas break in their St. Louis home, Connor shared the emotional moment when Deirdre, who had already confided in him, gathered the courage to come out to their parents.

As Deirdre stood in the doorway, she became overwhelmed with emotion, and tears started to flow. For nearly 10 minutes, she struggled to speak while their parents reassured her that everything would be alright. 

Eventually, Deirdre revealed her truth, explaining that she is transgender and identifies as a woman. Connor’s mother acknowledged the news, assuring Deirdre that everything was fine and that they would navigate the journey together.

However, it was Connor’s father who offered an incredibly heartwarming reaction. Taking a moment to process the information, he looked at Deirdre and inquired, “Okay, is this going to make you happy?” 

Deirdre said yes, and upon receiving a positive response, Connor’s father expressed, “Okay, great. Well, we love you no matter what. Now, I gotta go mow the lawn.”

The 31-year-old also stressed that being trans is a normal and beautiful part of life, stating, “Being trans is a part of life; it’s not some big showstopping thing.”

Connor Brennan’s allyship toward LGBTQ+ transformed after his sister’s transition

When the outlet asked if his allyship had changed since his sister’s transition, Connor excitedly replied, “Oh, my gosh, yeah. I mean, that’s sort of what ignited my allyship.”

Connor admitted that he had always considered himself an ally for the LGBTQ+ community. Still, he recognized that he had the privilege of not personally experiencing hate due to his own identity or whom he loved.

However, witnessing the challenges and discrimination his sister faced ignited a fierce protective instinct within him. 

He shared how his family educated themselves extensively, read every available resource, and adapted to support Deirdre.

His mother, Lisa Brennan, even wrote a book called Treasuring My Transgender Child to share their story of love and acceptance and inspire others with similar experiences.

When asked about his journey of educating himself about LGBTQ+ issues, Connor admitted it was initially challenging to let go of preconceived notions. 

However, Connor recognized that it was not his place to question or invalidate someone’s identity. He admitted that accepting his sister’s true self brought her immense happiness, and he couldn’t help but support her.

As someone who frequently educates others about LGBTQ+ issues, Connor shared that he tries to normalize the conversation. 

He casually mentions his sister’s transgender identity when appropriate, treating it as a natural part of life rather than a dramatic revelation.

Additionally, Connor addressed the influx of anti-trans bills and the impacts they have on his sister and their family. He expressed his frustration and anger towards the legislators who wish to erase and oppress the trans community. 

At last, the reality TV star expressed hope that more families like his will emerge, accepting and supporting the transgender community.

He mentioned, “this past year has been by far the hardest time of my life. i am not denying the highs that have come as well, but there have been countless and excruciating lows, and it’s all finally catching up to me.”

“I’m taking time away to seek treatment to finally and hopefully get my mental health to where it needs to be. i need a mental reset. i want to renew my mind,” the singer said.

He emphasized that his ultimate aspiration was to create moments and music that could heal and provide solace in a world characterized by fakeness and insecurity. 

However, Hossler admitted that to achieve that goal, he needed to be in the right state both physically and mentally, which he currently was not.

Despite his absence, he reassured his fans that his new song, ‘Elevated Heartbreak,’ would still be released on June 8, 2023. He expressed gratitude for his team, who would assist in ensuring the song’s release during his time away. 

The ‘Sober’ singer found solace in the fact that this song itself served as a form of therapy, and he hoped that his fans would connect with it, as he had created it with that purpose in mind.

Perry Mattfeld And Husband Mark Sanchez Share Wedding Vows

American actress Perry Mattfeld exchanged vows with her beloved partner, Mark Sanchez, in a beautiful destination wedding ceremony held in Mexico.

On May 28, 2023, Mattfeld and Sanchez married inside a historic 16th-century colonial monastery in Oaxaca, Mexico. Sanchez was accompanied to the altar by his mother, while close friends Leslie Powell and Seth Cook performed Elton John’s ‘Can You Feel the Love Tonight.’

On the other hand, the actress made a breathtaking entrance in a custom Karen Sabag dress. The beautiful bodice of the dress featured intricate beadwork from Paris, adding a touch of elegance and glamour.

Similarly, she accessorized the dress with diamond drop earrings that Sanchez had given her for their first Christmas as a boyfriend and girlfriend.

As Mattfeld gracefully walked down the aisle, the melodic tones of Rihanna’s ‘Lift Me Up’ filled the air, setting a magical atmosphere for the joyous occasion. Additionally, Sanchez’s son Daniel proudly stood beside them during the wedding, fulfilling the important roles of groomsman and ring bearer.

After the wedding, Sanchez shared his exclusive thoughts with People, revealing the overwhelming emotions that swept over the couple on their memorable day. 

He expressed, “Calling it emotional would be an understatement. It all hit me like a sudden rush, and I couldn’t hold back the tears. They were tears of joy, love, and deep gratitude for having such an incredible life partner by my side.”

Similarly, Mattfeld shared her thoughts about their destination wedding in Mexico. She said, “We are both of Mexican descent and we loved the idea of celebrating there. We visited Oaxaca a few years ago and fell in love, so we knew it was the perfect location for us. We also liked the idea of giving our friends and family a reason to visit Oaxaca!”

The actress also disclosed that they infused the celebration with butterflies as they symbolize a special connection to their departed loved ones.

Moreover, Mattfeld fondly remembered the days leading up to the wedding, which was equally remarkable. On May 26, 2023, they hosted a culturally immersive dinner at Criollo by Chef Luis Arellano, setting the stage for a weekend filled with vibrant experiences.

She also mentioned that during the celebration, their bridesmaids and groomsmen delivered heartfelt toasts and shared cherished stories about Sanchez and her, creating a deeply emotional and memorable experience for the couple.

Perry Mattfeld and Mark Sanchez had a wonderful engagement and bachelorette party
