Lorde is so great, right?
She makes great music, she seems wise beyond her years, she once had a secret Instagram account devoted to reviewing onion rings.
What's not to love?
Well, here's at least one thing most people don't seem to be too crazy about: yesterday Lorde made a post on Instagram that was extremely insensitive.
And it was about the late Whitney Houston, no less.
Has Lorde been canceled?!
Read on to see!
Lorde has been touring for the past several months, but yesterday she had a day off. To celebrate the occasion, she decided to take a nice, long bath. Sounds fine so far, right?
But then she posted this on Instagram. And things got bad so fast. Do you see the issue?
She shared a photo of the bathtub with some lyrics from "I Will Always Love You," the Dolly Parton song that Whitney Houston turned into an iconic ballad. But Whitney drowned in a bathtub. So it's just not a great reference.
Lorde, Sweetie ...
Lorde has never done anything like this, so she likely just didn't fully consider what she wrote before she posted it -- it happens. But still, she got a big reaction out of this.
We get people being upset, but to say that she's talentless? That's a bit of a stretch.
"Lord of the Rings"
Is this person trying to say she looks like Gollum? We assume that's what the message is here. Again, not cool.
