Lorde Will No Longer Perform At Upcoming VMAs Due To “Change In Production Elements”

Yahoo Entertainment 05 September, 2021 - 10:00pm

“Due to a change in production elements, Lorde can no longer perform at this year’s show. We love Lorde and cannot wait for her to perform on the VMA stage in the future!”

It’s unclear what production elements changed, but Lorde’s video for the title track of her new album, Solar Power, is nominated for Best Cinematography at the show.

It’s not the first VMAs controversy for the star. The last time she appeared on the show, in 2017, Lorde performed her song “Homemade Dynamite,” but did not sing. Instead, she did an interpretive dance onstage while the song played in the background.

Viewers were perplexed. Lorde later posted and explanation on Twitter (which has since been deleted).

“you can’t tell in these pictures but i have the flu so bad i needed an IV #showgoeson #cutelilproppedupcorpse,” she wrote.

She later offered more on the topic, saying that “People got, like, so angry about me performing at the VMAs.” Instead of singing, “I just danced. I just danced!” she explained. “And I danced with full f*cking joy.”

Afterward she says she realized why some people disliked the performance. “I’m like, ‘Oh. It’s because it’s so private seeing someone experience such joy publicly.'”

Justin Bieber, Kacey Musgraves, Chlöe, Doja Cat, Shawn Mendes, Twenty One Pilots, Camila Cabello, Lil Nas X, Machine Gun Kelly and Olivia Rodrigo are still a go for the event, which will be hosted by Doja Cat. It airs from Barclays Center on Sunday, September 12 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.

Lorde Backs Out of 2021 VMAs Performance After 'Change in Production Elements'

Us Weekly 05 September, 2021 - 04:44pm

“Due to a change in production elements, Lorde can no longer perform at this year’s show,” the official VMAs Twitter account announced Friday, September 3. “We love Lorde and cannot wait for her to perform on the VMA stage in the future! 💛”

The songstress, 24, has not acknowledged the change of plans yet, but it isn’t the first time Lorde has had trouble with her VMAs performance.

In 2017, the “Green Light” singer caught the flu but was determined to go on. Instead of singing her single “Homemade Dynamite,” she did an interpretive dance while the recorded track played. Fans were puzzled by the choice.

“It’s sort of embarrassing to watch someone experience intense joy,” Lorde said during a September 2017 appearance on the “WTF with Marc Maron” podcast. “I think that’s why people find what I do quite disconcerting. People got, like, so angry about me performing at the VMAs. I just danced. I just danced! And I danced with full f–king joy. Some people were like, ‘We get it, we love it.’ And some people were like, ‘This is offensive that I have to watch this.’”

She is up for one VMA this year, best cinematography for her “Solar Power” music video.

Lorde was announced as part of an all-star VMAs lineup last month. Though the New Zealand native, born Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor, has dropped off the bill, other stars are set to rock the Barclays Center stage in Brooklyn.

Camila Cabello, Lil Nas X, Machine Gun Kelly and Olivia Rodrigo — all of whom were announced in the initial round of performers alongside Lorde — are still set to sing. Kacey Musgraves, Chlöe Bailey, Shawn Mendes and Twenty One Pilots have also been added to the lineup. Host Doja Cat, of course, will also perform for the VMAs audience.

Justin Bieber is the latest addition to the slew of stars playing MTV’s biggest show. The “Peaches” singer, 27, hasn’t performed on an awards show since the Billboard Music Awards in May 2016. He hasn’t visited the VMAs since August 2015 when he sang “Where Are Ü Now” and “What Do You Mean?” for the Los Angeles audience.

Bieber is also up for five moon person statues, including best artist, best pop video, best cinematography, best collaboration and best editing.

The 2021 Video Music Awards air live on MTV Sunday, September 12 at 8 p.m. ET.
