Lorde accuses Kanye West and Kid Cudi for stealing her Stage

Kanye-West-Lorde-Kid-Cudi Kanye-West-Lorde-Kid-Cudi[/caption] Lorde is calling out Kanye West and Kid Cudi for allegedly stealing her idea to perform in a floating glass box: something she did before Cudi and Ye. The “Green Light” singer posted photos on her Instagram story Monday, displaying her floating glass box stage design along with the one KC and KW used Sunday night during their Camp Flog Gnaw performance in L.A. The 2 are almost identical. [caption id="attachment_132785" align="alignnone" width="728"]-kanye-stage-insta-2 -kanye-stage-insta-2[/caption] She captioned one of her pics with clear disapproval, saying … “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.” She continues … “But don’t steal — not from women or anyone else — not in 2018 or ever.” [caption id="attachment_132786" align="alignnone" width="728"]-lorde-stage-show-instagram-1 (1) -lorde-stage-show-instagram-1 (1)[/caption] Lorde put dancers in her floating box, and even hopped in there herself during her 2017 international “Melodrama” tour. She also used the stage prop during her 2017 Coachella performance. You may recall … Kanye was the first big artist to use a floating platform stage during a concert, which was a highlight of the “Saint Pablo Tour” of 2016.  It’s not the same as Lorde’s, but, one could argue, Kanye is the OG of suspended stages. Lorde’s claim has now become a lot more questionable. Turns out, the set designer, Es Devlin has worked with Kanye since 2005. She’s helped him design sets for MASSIVE tours including Touch The Sky, Glow in the Dark, Watch the Throne, YEEZUS and Saint Pablo. What’s more … it’s puzzling Lorde tried making the alleged “theft” a gender issue, Devlin is female. Devlin designed Kanye’s floating stage for Saint Pablo in 2016. Just one year later, Lorde hired her to design the suspended box look for her Coachella show and then Lorde copied the concept, making it float for her tour … ironic. Our Kanye sources say he’s never seen a Lorde show and would never think to copy her. There are also striking similarities between other Kanye tour looks, and what Lorde recently did on tour.
