The upcoming World Series between the Kansas City Royals and the San Francisco Giants just got very personal.
For Lorde, at least.
A pair of Bay City radio stations - KFOG Radio and 96.5 KOIT - have benched the single “Royals” from their airwaves until the conclusion of The Fall Classic.
The singer, after all, revealed many months ago that the inspiration for this track came from a photograph she saw in National Geographic of a baseball player with Royals on his shirt.
The picture ended up being of Kansas City legend George Brett signing autographs - and Lorde was later given her own signed jersey by the Hall of Famer.
In response to the ban, Kansas City radio station 99.7 plans to play "Royals" once every hour from 7. a.m. to 7. p.m. tomorrow, the day of the first game.
"You might try to stop the #Royals on your airwaves... but we'll just pump 'em up!" the station wrote on its Facebook page.
This is the second time this month Lorde has found herself involved in an unexpected pop culture event/debate.
On South Park Season 18 Episode 3, the singer was revealed to actually be a 45-year old man named Randy Marsh. Confused? We don't blame you.
