How can I fuck with the fun again, when I'm known?

from Lorde – Tennis Court Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Lorde already sees that fame is a trap. Once she reaches the public eye, she will stay there forever.Therefore, she can’t do anything actually enjoyable for fear that the media catches onto it. She knows that since she’s blown up she’s never going to be completely carefree again.

Lorde, like other young celebrities, is being treated like an adult, even though she hasn’t been given the time to mature yet. This pressure affects many young celebrities and Lorde fears that it will affect her too.
