Lorde has called out Kanye West and Kid Cudi for allegedly “stealing” parts of her stage design.
Over the weekend, West and Cudi performed tracks from their collaborative project Kids See Ghosts at Tyler, The Creator’s curated festival Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival 2018. The duo were the most hyped up performance of the festival after rapping from inside of a glass box.

After their performance went viral on social media, Lorde clapped back in an Instagram story where she accused West of “stealing” her set design.
“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,” Lorde wrote in the story. “But don’t steal – not from women or anyone else – not in 2018 or ever.”
Check out the Instagram story and images from both sets below.
