Lorde has hit back at those criticising her MTV VMA's performance.

Last month Lorde performed at the awards ceremony while suffering from the flu - because of this, she was unable to sing but made the effort to perform and dance onstage to a backing track anyway.

Hitting back at critics, she has said:

"It's sort of embarrassing to watch someone experience intense joy... I think that's why people find what I do so disconcerting. 

"This VMAs thing, people were so angry about me performing. I just danced. And I danced with full... joy. And some people were like 'We get it, we love it.' And some people were like, 'This is offensive that I have to watch this.'

"I'm like, oh, it's because it's so private seeing someone experiencing such joy... [But] it's really changed my life, opening up to being very unafraid of intense joy publicly."
