Lorde Responds to Impersonator Who Tricked Fans in New Zealand: 'This is Deeply Fake News But Quite Cute'
A group of 100 Lorde fans got duped during the “No Lights No Lycra Dance Party” event happening in New Zealand Monday (March 27) when they thought they were witnessing a surprise appearance from the singer herself.
The total darkness event, held at the Grey Lynn Public Library in Auckland, prompted a stir of excitement once word spread that Lorde was the special guest of the night. The hour-long "dance freedom" festivity had fans convinced one of the performers of the night was the “Green Light” singer because of her uncanny and impressive impersonation.
“You know you are in Auckland City when Lorde casually rocks out as the surprise guest at your local No Lights No Lycra hosted at the community library,” a fan who attended the gig said, according to the New Musical Express.
However, the joke was on everyone when Lorde -- who was actually chilling in London at the time of the event -- proved the rumor wrong. The pop singer quickly caught wind of the news and took to her social media accounts that she was in fact currently with her mother eating Crème Eggs in England.
Instead of being upset about her impersonator, Lorde couldn't help feeling a little flattered by the whole situation -- even if it was "deeply fake news."
