Lorde calls out Kanye West & Kid Cudi for copying her stage show

music news 13/11/2018

On an Instagram story rant, Lorde has gone in on Kanye West and Kid Cudi for stealing her stage show concept from her tour earlier this year.

At Camp Flog Gnaw festival over in the USA, Kids See Ghosts (Kanye West and Kid Cudi's duo) performed on a massive floating glass stage, hoisted above the crowd.

Look familiar? Well, that's becasue it is. Lorde has already used a similar style stage for her last tour, and let's just say she wasn't too happy to see what we assume was her idea, being used without her permission.

Their stage:

The similarities are pretty uncanny really, and she's thrown full shade at them for their recreation.

I'm proud of the work I do and it's flattering when other artists feel inspired by it, to the extent that they choose to try it on themselves, But don't steal - not from women or anyone else - not in 2018 or ever.

We're proud of Lorde for stickin' up for herself in a situation where she felt she had been wronged.

But do you think it's stealing? Or is it a bit of a stretch?
