Lorde is not afraid to show off her controversial relationship with new older boyfriend James Lowe.

The two were spotted arriving at Sydney's ABC studios last week together before heading out to perform in Rozelle.

The 17-year-old "Royals" singer, real name Ella Yelich-O'Connor, looked happy and content while walking alongside Lowe, 24, and her mom Sonja Yelich.

While to most the relationship is new, the Daily Mail reported that the two started dating last year before Lorde reached pop star status. And the two are still going strong despite Lorde's recent Grammy wins for Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance.

The pair started feeling the heat because not only because Lowe is seven years older than the pop star, but also because he is Asian.

In a recent interview with the Rolling Stone, the singer defended her relationship.

"You almost wonder about humans," she said, noting that interracial relationships are common where she grew up. "That's why the reaction came as such a surprise to me. No one I know would even think this was a big deal."

Lorde's mom also defended the couple.

"I didn't say, 'Yeah, sure, go date a 24-year-old,'" Yelich said in the same interview. "But her dad and I met James and we liked him. When Ella was much younger, her first boyfriend was older -- four years or something."

Well, hopefully rabid fans come around to Lorde dating an older boyfriend. Besides, it's cool that he's a photographer, and he seems to love Lorde very much!
