Lorde Takes South Park Ribbing In Stride, Calls Sia Out For Impersonating Her - VIDEO

Trey Parker and Matt Stone set their satirical sights on “Yellow Flicker Beat” singer Lorde in the most recent episode of South Park. While last week’s central plot focused on Eric Cartman feigning being transgender in order to gain access to a private bathroom, the episode’s subplot exposed Lorde’s secret identity as a middle-aged married man.

To her credit the 17-year old New Zealander took the ribbing in stride, admitting that while she didn’t regularly watch the show, she was honored to have been featured. The singer also sang a brief snippet of the episode’s running joke--that the basis of most of her songs is the simple phrase “I am Lorde. Ya, ya, ya.”

“i have officially been the subject of two South Park episodes and that is weird and cool,” she tweeted out in response to the internet’s swift pickup of the episode. “i don't actually watch south park but from what i can tell sia was involved and someone's mum said something really nice about me.. score!”

Throughout the episode Lorde, whom we learn is actually Stan Marsh’s father (Randy) in drag and is working on track entitled “Feeling Good On A Wednesday.” Meant to be a spoof of Lorde’s “Royals,” the parody sounds a lot more like Sia covering early Mandy Moore. The “Chandelier” singer has neither confirmed nor denied her involvement in the show, but the vocals are fairly unmistakable.

Check Out Lorde's New Single From 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay' Soundtrack 'Yellow Flicker Beat'


17-year-old Royals singer Lorde has released "Yellow Flicker Beat," her new single off of the soundtrack for the upcoming The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1.

Entertainment Weekly writes the track "is a banger and sounds tailor-made for a blockbuster—meaning most of it resembles the generic epic fare designed to underscore a major battle or ending credits."

Give it a listen, AFTER THE JUMP...

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part One opens November 21 and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore, Jeffrey Wright, Donald Sutherland, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Sam Claflin, and Natalie Dormer.

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


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.

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


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.
