Lorde, who is only 18, is also an encouraging friend. Her curated pop soundtrack for the Hunger Games: Mockingjay--Part 1 features her pal Jennifer Lawrence.

The film's director, Francis Lawrence, recently spoke to Vulture about the haunting song "Hanging Tree" that Jennifer sings herself in the movie, saying, "She would have much rather we used somebody else's voice. I think she said she wanted Lorde to do it!"

Now the actress is becoming a bit of a pop star as the single is a top 40 hit in the UK according to the BBC.

With a little help from Lorde, both Shayne and Lawrence have become singing sensations.
