I don’t like your little games / Don’t like your tilted stage / The role you made me play
Lorde has joined the chorus, taking to Instagram to post a picture of her touring stage set, which features a giant glass box that tilts while she’s inside.
“I’m proud of the work that 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 wrote in her Instagram Story. “But don’t steal – not from women or anyone else – not in 2018 or ever.”
The backlash has already begun with one Kanye follower commenting: “Lorde called, she wants her production back.”

Kanye West is usually celebrated for his stage set. He debuted his suspended, tilting stage in August 2016 as part of his Saint Pablo world tour. Kanye would tie himself to the stage so the stage could tilt in all directions toward the crowd underneath without him falling off.

But it wouldn’t be a public beef without fans doing their best to pull receipts… One Twitter user has drawn comparisons to Kanye’s tilting stage and Lorde’s glass box:
But didn’t she steal the floating stage idea from Kanye from his saint Pablo tour then? pic.twitter.com/dsDYwDhuQ3
