Trombone-Wielding Farmer Plays Lorde's 'Royals' 'Til The Cows Come Home: VIDEO

Lorde1

YouTube user Farmer Derek Klingenberg has amassed millions of views on prairie-parodies alone; songs like, "Do you want to drive my tractor?" (ripping-off Frozen's "Do You Want To Build A Snowman?") and "What Does the Farmer Say?" (a send-up of Ylvis' "fox" version) drew in plenty of crowds. But cows? They're tougher to please.

Cue Farmer Derek sitting in a field alone with his trombone and blaring Lorde's number one hit "Royals." The cattle can't help but say yes, and the visual alone will have you laughing. Stick it out to the end to see just how musical these cows can be.

Watch the hilarious video, AFTER THE JUMP...

Westboro Counter-Protesters Hold Sign Saying 'Sorry For Your Loss' At Lorde Concert: VIDEO

Westboro

A day after Fred Phelps the founder of the "God Hates Fags" Westboro Baptist Church died, the church decided to protest a Lorde concert in Kansas City for "serving herself and teaching other young people how to be indolent rebels." They also made an awesomely tone-deaf cover of Lorde's "Royals", but we digress.

SorryLorde tweeted to her fans that she wanted a counter-protest in response, but she later deleted that tweet. Nevertheless, local counter-protesters showed up to the venue holding signs reading "Sorry for your loss" and "Live your life and be awesome." 

As one protester told the KSHB news station, "I think if people are forced to have stare at [the WBC's hateful signs], they should have the option to have something good to look at." Protester Megan Coleman also said, "We realized that it wasn't so much about antagonizing them (the WBC), but sending out the counter message that we are here for people who need that message and need that positivity."

Sadly, one of the Westboro members feigned ignorance as to what the counter-protest signs were even in reference to.

An Australian radio host got an earful from Lorde after joking about rumors that she and Taylor Swift are involved in a lesbian relationship, E! reports.

Said Kyle Sandilands of KIIS 1065's Kyle & Jackie Show:

"Are you bringing your new bestie, Taylor Swift? I see your guys' pictures everywhere. Are you guys, like, uh, are you together now?...Not together as in lesbians…I'm not talking about 'Ellen together.' I'm talking about, like, you guys are friendly, right?"

Lorde wasn't having it:

Lorde retorted, "What do you mean you're not talking about 'Ellen together?' Is there something wrong with lesbians? Is that what you're trying to say?"

Sandilands explained, "Oh my god, no, I would love that. Are you going to confirm now that you're in a lesbian relationship with her?"

"Don't ever try it. It's not working," Lorde said.
