Lorde is Stoned at the Nail Salon and I have questions

Stuff.co.nz 22 July, 2021 - 06:01pm

Questions, I have many. I can't imagine why anyone would choose to be stoned at a nail salon. It's just so rinky dinky.

All that filing, the bright lights. A hand massage where the probably underpaid, potentially exploited worker takes out all their repressed rage on your hand. Excuse me, my bliss is shop-soiled.

All the Solar Power to her but why not get stoned at a mate's house or at 4am lying on the beach looking at stars?

Maybe she's just wound too, ahem, tightly?

As you'd expect, the song is mellow and laid back.

Lorde will perform it live on US talk show Late Night with Seth Meyers on Thursday (NZ time), one of her first such performances since March 2020.

Stoned has some shared lyrics with Solar Power, the title track from her new album due to drop on August 20, which apparently got 50 million streams recently and in which Lorde refers to herself as “a prettier Jesus”.

In short, Lorde appears to be taking two songs to emphasise how much she dislikes winter and flakes out on plans because of it.

This is a particularly relatable New Zealand winter phenomenon.

Ditto Lorde's kitchen windowsill where there is a wishbone drying in case she changes her mind. Some Antipodeans take potential wishes from the bones of Christmas dinner very seriously.

Maybe another song on her upcoming album details Lorde's preferred method of getting high?

I’d be into colourful details about the tinny house she visited, whether she rolled her own or someone did it for her because she just had her nails done, that sort of thing.

Maybe a song titled “Who has my lighter? Is that my lighter?” or um... sorry, the smallest interruption can end my entire thought process.

Lorde imparts her introspective navel-gazing wisdom well here and her voice is Lana del Ray level pleasing on this ballad, which has shades of Ribs.

Beautiful girls wilt like flowers, she reckons. Spend time with those who raised you, the music you liked at 16 will fade and Friday night rides on carousels are to be encouraged. She’s not wrong.

Lorde likes her life. Happiness is a dog who comes when you call. She has aesthetically pleasing vines.

But, when the heat comes, something happens to Lorde, and now she’s got to make like the Black Seeds and cool it down for some reason yet to be disclosed.

She lyrically reminisces about being naked in bed wearing only earrings and “dancing all over the landmines”.

I reckon she got that line while stoned.

If Lorde got stoned in better places, sisters in alleyways smoking like ruined cities would tell her things like – “don't waste the pretty”, “sometimes the rubbish takes itself out” and “the bumblebee is too busy to stop and tell the fly that honey is much better than s...”.

Some chin-stroking creeper will no doubt review Lorde's latest song for a pretentious music blog somewhere and compare her wishbone reference to a pagan ritual or analyse Lorde's nail colours for symbolism. Yawn.

As far as sadly realistic slice-of-life songs about getting high in New Zealand go, I’d recommend recent release Puff Puff Pass by Christchurch dance poet duo Partying at the Disco, aka Georgie Sivier and Thomas Klever.

What’s the middle-aged equivalent of being stoned in a nail salon?

Lorde, try drinking a latte in Bunnings while searching for an obscure bathroom window handle. This is the future. Stay on the carousel as long as you can.

Lorde got so drunk with Seth Meyers she needed an IV drip

Lorde Needed IV Fluids After Day Drinking with Seth Meyers: 'Can't Ever Look at an Alcoholic Drink Again'

PEOPLE 22 July, 2021 - 02:00pm

The pop star, 24, told the host of Late Night with Seth Meyers, 47, that she is swearing off booze after getting incredibly intoxicated while filming a segment for his show. In fact, the "Stoned at the Nailed Salon" singer ended up needing IV fluids to get better.

"I can't look at an alcoholic drink ever again. It was insane," Lorde told Meyers during an interview after the filming incident. "Someone came to my hotel and administered fluids to my corpse."

Lorde appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert the following night, and Meyers admitted he was "very nervous" watching her perform. The comedian lauded the "Solar Power" singer for pulling through, though she didn't let him off easy. 

"You did kind of destroy me," Lorde told Meyers.

During the segment, Lorde and Meyers consumed copious amounts of alcohol while engaging in fun activities. Before a drop passed anyone's lips, though, the singer admitted she is "nervous" about what was to come.

After Lorde settled in with her drink of choice, a classic Martini, Meyers whips up some Lorde-themed drinks -- the Solar Power (which Lorde claims "wasn't terrible"), the Everybody Wants To Rule The World (which neither of them liked) and the Ribs, a gin-based drink with a lime-and-rib garnish.

The duo then moved on to a series of drinking games, beginning by quizzing each other on slang words from New England and New Zealand, where Meyers and Lorde hail from, respectively. Meyers also had to take a shot every time he forgot her full name -- Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O'Connor.

In another game, Meyers and Lorde held up photographs of royal figures in honor of her 2013 hit "Royals." For every incorrect answer, they took a shot of Crowne Royal whiskey. 

For the final game, each person was challenged with recreating the best replica of the cover for Lorde's 2017 album Melodrama, which features an intricate painting of the singer.

"Can I just say that, I know that it would seem that we're -- I don't know. I've watched this before, like, who knows? Are they drunk? But like, I'm drunk," a tipsy Lorde told the cameras while painting.

The final portion of the segment featured Meyers drunkenly singing along to Lorde's 2017 single "Green Light" while she watched. Lorde eventually joined in as Meyers danced around the room.

Lorde's new single, "Stoned at the Nail Salon" is available now. Her album Solar Power will be released on August 20.

Lorde Goes Day Drinking With Seth Meyers and Performs “Stoned at the Nail Salon”

Lorde’s performance saw her sitting on the stage, nestled among flowers and her band. Produced by frequent collaborator Jack Antonoff, “Stoned at the Nail Salon” will appear on the singer’s long-awaited album Solar Power, which arrives Aug. 20. “It’s definitely one of the quietest, most introspective, and internal moments on the record, but I thought it was cool to start with “Solar Power” and then to be like, ‘And also this,’” Lorde told Zane Lowe.

Lorde and Meyers also sat down for his trademark “Day Drinking” interview segment, which has previously seen appearances from Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson, the Jonas Brothers, and more. Here, Meyers brought Lorde to the New York City bar Zero Bond, where he created drinks built from her song titles, like “Solar Power” and “Ribs.” The pair also swapped slang from New Zealand and Boston, while Lorde had Meyers remember her very long birth name (which he got wrong). They ended up boozing so hard that Lorde had to get an IV drip after their daytime session.

Elsewhere in the interview, Lorde discussed how Antarctica served as an inspiration for Solar Power, which you can watch below.

Kiwi singer Lorde thrilled fans on Wednesday evening when she went makeup free during a late night TV appearance.

The 24-year-old, whose real name is Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O'Connor, skipped the face paint and revealed her porcelain complexion while appearing on Late Night With Seth Meyers.

The singer was dressed to the nines and stunned in a yellow plunging silk dress.

The Royals singer, who is due to release her highly-anticipated new album Solar Power next month, showed off her décolletage by going braless under the slinky frock. 

The gown featured a tie over the bust and a small cut out over her stomach. 

She teamed the look with a chic pair of yellow and orange strappy stilettos and wore her long locks out and over her shoulders.

She told Zane Lowe on Apple Music that she wants to be herself and can't really do that on social media.

'I realised I was trying to come up with a funny Instagram caption and do a photo of me that looked cool that I would hope would get a certain amount of likes,' Lorde said. 

'It sounds obvious, but that's cooked. For me, I'm not a girl that gets a bunch of likes. I'm who I am, and I've got to lean into that.' 

She added that as she gets older she doesn't use social media as much.
