Lorde loves her mom. In an interview with Billboard, the 18-year-old singer recalled a story about how her mother, Sonja Yelich, stood up to a young boy who had bullied Lorde because of her eyebrows.

“My mum is the best ever: When I was 8, she drove to my school and shouted at a boy who made fun of my mono-brow,” Lorde said. “Then she taught me about Frida Kahlo and why mono-brows are cool.”

On Twitter, Lorde elaborated about why that was such a standout moment from her youth.

Happy Mother’s Day, Lorde’s mom!
