Lorde feels lucky to have her celebrity friends because fame can be ''scary'' at times.
She said: ''It's an element of wanting to stick together. Because it can be so scary to do this.
''These friendships, they're about having a hand put on your shoulder by someone who knows. They're about hearing, 'I've done it, too.'''
And the 20-year-old singer - whose real name is Ella Yelich-O'Connor - felt the pressure being lifted when she talked to some of her well-established celebrity friends about how to cope with how fans receive her second musical offering, given the first one was such a success.
She added to The Guardian newspaper: ''I've talked to other artist friends about a moment in their careers when they've felt themselves stop getting better.
''So it was almost nice, in a way, to come to this second record and realise, 'Ooooh, I can still be crap at this.' It meant there was still so much to learn.''
Meanwhile, Lorde previously admitted she ''sucks'' at being famous.
She explained: ''When it was happening, I was quite overwhelmed by it. But that was a long time ago. If anything, I've slowly been getting less famous since 'Royals' was really big. Which is totally cool for me ... I suck at being famous. And that's fine ...
''It rocked my foundations and could have f***ed me, you know [when she first became famous]? I remember being made aware of my looks and my body in a way that I had never been.
''I remember all these kids online, I think I beat their favourite people to Number One, and they were like, 'F**k her, she's got really far-apart eyes'. I remember being like, 'Whoa! How did I get all this way without knowing I had far-apart eyes?' Just weird s**t like that. But I was able to return to my family and shelter against that and get to where I am now. I feel so comfortable in myself.''
