Lorde takes the power back with cover of Jeremih’s ‘Don’t Tell ‘Em’
What can’t Lorde do?
The original is made for the club, but Lorde slows it down and reverses the gender roles. In an interview, she explained “[i]t’s quite a saucy song or something, and I think it would be interesting to flip the dynamic and make that power mine.”
Lorde’s having an excellent 18th birthday month. She debuted the video for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 single “Yellow Flicker Beat,” which has already been “reworked” by Kanye West, and gave Diplo the gas face.
@diplo should we do something about your tiny penis while we’re at it hm
