Lorde set the record straight

Lorde's responded to a viral video of her shushing an audience during an old performance of her song “Writer in the Dark”.

Lorde addressed “Writer in the Dark” shushing video during her ‘Solar Power Tour’ in Chicago:

“That dramatic move was literally for an album called ‘Melodrama,’ so don’t stress too hard.”

“The internet has decided this was very bad and very rude. I think they mustn’t have come to one of these shows… it’s such a communal vibe. We’re all singing & screaming all the time.”
