Lorde in the video for "Magnets."

If Disclosure’s “Magnets” video confirms anything definitively, it’s that you do not want to mess with Lorde. The 18-year-old pop star engages in a dangerous affair in Disclosure’s steamy new video, and ends up setting fire to her mistakes (very literally).

First seen at a party, Lorde eyes up the good-looking dude that she’ll soon be sucking face with. Unfortunately, this dude has a rigidly dressed wife — and instead of the wife getting revenge on his cheating ass, Lorde-as-mistress does the dirty work for her while whispering, “Let’s embrace the point of no return.” The husband's hidden monstrosities are alluded to (the wife has a black eye in one shot) and ultimately doom him.
