Lorde accuses Kanye of steling her idea

Kanye's first live performance alongside rapping buddy Kid Cudi this weekend looked suspiciously familiar to a recent performance by Lorde.

Well, that is according to the Kiwi singer herself.

The pair were displayed above the crowd in a perspex box, a bit of stagecraft performed by Lorde at Coachella back in summer 2017.

On her Instagram story, she compared images of the two sets accompanied by a brilliantly backhanded compliment to Ye.

“I’m proud of the work I do, and it’s flattering when other artists feel inspired by it," she wrote, "to the extent that they choose to try it on themselves.

Quote Message: But don’t steal - not from women or anyone else - not in 2018 or ever.

In his defence it's not a million miles away from the glass box that magician David Blaine was suspended above London in in 2003, is it?

Beyonce also performed in a box as part of her Formation World Tour in 2016.

What's that old saying? "Talent borrows. Genius Steals."
