Last night, Kids See Ghosts (the collaborative project of Kanye Westand Kid Cudi) made their live debut at Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival 2018. The performance featured Ye and Cudi rapping from a giant glass box suspended in the air. Today on her Instagram Story, Lorde has called out Kids See Ghosts for “stealing” the stage design from her. She shared photos from her shows, as well as KSG’s, and wrote, “I’m proud of the work I do, and it’s flattering when other artists feel inspired by it, to the extent that they choose to try it on themselves. But don’t steal—not from women or anyone else—not in 2018 or ever.”
