December is nearly upon us, a month in which all of us take a fond look back at the year that was while also plotting on how we can make the following year even more awesome. That said, today is Thanksgiving, a day which is predicated on giving thanks for all of the blessings that have been bestowed upon us. So it’s only natural that we spent some time over the last week carving our way through the archives here at the VH1 Music, being careful to toss the bones to the left and saving all the good, juicy stuff for you today.

She may have been born Ella Yelich-O’Connor, but the world is coming to know September’s You Oughta Know artist simply as “Lorde.” The “Royals” singer took her love of monarchy to the next level when she looked through books for aristocratic titles that she could call herself on stage and “lord” just jumped out at her. She said, “I love the sound of the word and how it looks, but I also like how it’s a little arrogant, you know what I mean?” Of course, not everything about the teen star is “arrogant”…
