Listen to Lorde on iHeartRadio

Lorde has earned her first-ever "Rolling Stone" cover. 

The 17-year-old took to Twitter on Wednesday to reveal the photo to her followers along with the caption, "I have to keep reminding myself that this is my life." 

The magazine is calling their new cover girl "pop's most unlikely new superstar," in a preview of the story that hits newsstands in full on Friday. 

For the interview, "Rolling Stone" traveled to Lorde's parents' home in New Zealand, where the singer still lives.  She'll address her friendship with country star Taylor Swift, the Twitter reaction to her boyfriend and being seen as the "anti-" Miley Cyrus for many teenage girls.
