Lorde Accuses Kid Cudi, Kanye West of Stealing Floating Glass Box Stage

Lorde is hitting out at Kanye West.

West and Cudi debuted their Kids See Ghosts tour on Sunday showcasing a floating box the rappers performed in and Lorde claims it is the same one as from her Melodrama world tour.

If you've seen footage from the last set of the day at Tyler, The Creator's massive festival at Dodger Stadium on the weekend, Kid Cudi and Kanye performed from inside a massive glass box above the stage, kind of like a huge see-through shipping container suspended at least three metres above everything.

Drake talked about his problems with Kanye West, who produced Pusha T's "Daytona" album, in an episode of "The Shop" on HBO.

Lorde's original stage from her Coachella tour. "But don't steal-not from women or anyone else-not in 2018 or ever", she wrote.


Contacted by Variety, a rep for Lorde had no further comment.

Variety reported they'd asked a rep for West whether the rapper had simply rented Lorde's stage set; the rep replied he believed West had the set built.

Back in 2014, the New York Post's Page Six column reported the American hip-hop superstar will soon be at least meeting up with one prominent Kiwi - the good Lorde herself, Ella Yelich-O'Connor - for a musical collaboration. Lorde has a history of covering Kanye songs live.

West tweeted about the performance on Monday, though he didn't reference Lorde's criticisms.

Lorde put dancers in her floating box, and even hopped in there herself during her 2017 worldwide "Melodrama" tour.
