Lorde made a very rare appearance on Instagram last night to call out Kanye West for “stealing” her set design. Lorde didn’t mention his name, but she posted several photos of her glass box set versus the one that Kanye West and Kid Cudi used at their Kids See Ghosts tour performance at Los Angeles’s Camp Flog Gnaw on Sunday, per TMZ.

In her last Insta-story post, Lorde wrote, “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. But don’t steal—not from women or anyone else—not in 2018 or ever.”
Sources close to West denied to TMZ that West stole from Lorde, as West has “never seen a Lorde show and would never think to copy her.” Lorde worked with set designer Es Devlin on her set design, Buzzfeed pointed out, and Devlin has a 13-year working relationship with West (and very well could have designed sets for his new tour).
