Lorde Accuses Kanye West and Kid Cudi of Stealing Her Stage Design
Last night (Nov. 11), Kanye West and Kid Cudi performed at Tyler The Creator's 2018 Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival in Los Angeles, leaving fans in awe of their performance. Lorde, however, doesn't seem too enthused over their set and is now accusing the duo of stealing her stage design.
'Ye and Cudi's set design included a rectangular glass box that hovered above the stage. The two MC's performed inside the box for their 45-minute performance. In a series of photos posted to her Instagram story, Lorde pointed out the similarities between her 2017 Coachella stage design and Kanye and Kid Cudi's stage.
The "Royals" singer ultimately ended up accusing both artists of stealing her idea. "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," wrote Lorde, who previously collaborated with Kanye for a remix of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Pt. 1 single, "Yellow Flicker Beat." "But don't steal -- not from women or anyone else -- not in 2018 or ever."
While having a fellow superstar accuse you of stealing is never a good look, Kanye and Cudi can still say they've had a pretty dope last 24 hours. Hitting the stage yesterday, the two left their fans more than a little happy as they delivered dope performances of Kids See Ghosts tracks like "Reborn," "Fire," "Free (Ghost Town Pt. 2)" and "4th Dimension."
On the solo end of things, 'Ye performed 808s & Heartbreak classics like "Paranoid" and "Welcome To Heartbreak." Meanwhile, Cudi performed "Pursuit of Happiness." Kid Cudi and Kanye West have yet to comment on Lorde's accusation. Check out their stage design below.
