Secure your spot while tickets last!
Lorde fan Jorji Kellogg was hoping for tickets to the singer's Melodrama world tour this Christmas, but her parents couldn't pass up the opportunity for a clever prank.
Instead of getting their daughter Lorde tickets, they printed out tickets to go see popular televangelist Joel Osteen at the Sprint Center. The gift came along with a note that read, "Dad and I are so proud and happy that you want to grow your faith and spend time with the Lord! Enjoy Pastor Joel Osteen at the Spirit Center!"
Unfazed, Kellogg tweeted photos of her present with the deadpan caption: "I asked for Lorde tickets. Not The Lord."
Within days, the post accumulated over 100,000 likes. When sympathy for Kellogg started pouring in through the comments, her mother chimed in to set the record straight and explained that it was just a prank.
Of course, this is the latest moment in a long line of Lorde/Lord confusion over the years. Back in 2013, Lorde admitted that she liked how self-confident the name sounded when she first picked it, telling VH1, "I love the sound of the word and how it looks, but I also like how it’s a little arrogant, you know what I mean?"
For anyone concerned about Kellogg being deprived of a chance to see Lorde, rest assured, "She's going to see Lorde, people!"
Lorde tickets and a viral tweet? What a gift.
