NBA match confuses pop star Lorde

Published Add your comment

It appears that not many NBA games are broadcast in New Zealand. Well that's the impression we've gotten from teen pop sensation Lorde.

The 17-year old Auckland native had a day off from her North America tour and spent it at the United Center to watch the Chicago Bulls and Oklahoma City Thunder match up against each other in a clash of teams looking to go deep into the post-season.

But the 'Royals' singer was distinctly lost by what was going on around her and ended up live tweeting what she was experiencing in Chicago.

Her first of several tweets started off a bit weird, with the youngster saying "i am at a bulls game this is so intense how does everyone in this room not have a stress ulcer."

Does everybody get that way during a game? When it's a big game with a lot on the line for the team you love then sure, but when it's your first ever game. Odd to say the least from Lorde - real name Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O'Connor (We'll stick with Lorde).

The songstress obviously isn't a fan of punctuation either, with her next in the play-by-play reading "i am such an outsider to the world of sport but i feel very proud of all playing". 

An admirable statement there and one we encourage over swear words and hatred fans dish out so regularly.

But then the entertainment seemingly knocked her for six, as she quickly reeled off two messages about cheerleaders dancing to drum instrumentals and then hilariously a red carpet on which a man did tricks with his dog. This is starting to sound a lot like Will Ferrell's comedy Semi-Pro.

And it seems that the night was finished off by a bit of man love as her keyboardist and drummer were caught on the kiss cam.

Sounds like a good night out to me. The Thunder ended up beating the Bulls 97-85 for good measure.
