I love Lorde. Lorde has supported campaigns to feed hungry children and has written songs that are amazing canvases for gluten-free covers. Here I was thinking that the Kiwi pop star could do no wrong. Her latest single, “Green Light,” left me less than excited, and now she’s gone and dissed American chocolate on BBC Radio 1.
Deejay Grimmy recently invited Lorde to his show, where they talked about her obsession with Cadbury Creme Eggs. In doing so she told Grimmy of her excitement because she had been in America, where “the chocolate is not very good.” Perhaps what follows is a form of punishment, but Grimmy proposes they sing a parody of “Green Light” about Creme Eggs.
Despite her attempts to delay the butchering of her already boring song by eating her egg, the deejay insists on making the duet a reality. Lorde visibly grimaces at the 3:55 mark. Now that you’ve listened to the cheesy parody, cleanse yourself with Lorde’s cover of Jeremih’s “Don’t Tell ‘Em.”
If the Cadbury Creme Egg is the definition of “good chocolate” to the songstress, we may have another thing to discuss. Don’t get me wrong. I’ve been known to venture out to the British specialty stores for the sweet oval-shaped chocolate shell and creamy orange-flavored filling. But it’s the filling I’m really after, not the chocolate! With that said, I hereby invite Lorde to tour the great chocolate factories of America: Tcho, Dandelion, Ritual, Patric and even the controversial beards at Mast Brothers.
Check out the cringeworthy parody below.
