Designer Ev Devlin Shuts Down Lorde's Accusations Kanye & Kid Cudi Jacked Lorde”

The picture on the left shows Lorde's 2017 set at Coachella.

Kanye and Cudi released a joint LP, Kids See Ghosts, earlier in the year and it seems the performance has made Ye rethink his second solo release of 2018.

"CARMEN by Georges Bizet, English National Opera 2007", she wrote in reference to the stage she designed for a play by Bizet. He added: "Cubes and floating aren't new to Kanye West, stage design or architecture". She continues. "But don't steal - not from women or anyone else - not in 2018 or ever".

The singer, 22, posted a series of photos to her Instagram stories on Monday showing off the similar set.

Check out images comparing the two performances, which were shared to Lorde's Instagram story, below.

Representatives for Devlin did not immediately respond to EW's request for comment. Owner John McGuire told the New York Times that Lorde "wasn't the first person to use a floating glass box".

Lorde's Melodrama and Coachella set was designed by ES Devlin. He debuted his suspended, tilting stage in August 2016 as part of his Saint Pablo world tour.

According to her website, the same designer is responsible for some of Kanye's most famous concert sets, including an artificial mountain structure that was used during his Yeezus tour. In 2014, the rapper reworked her "Hunger Games" hit "Yellow Flicker Beat". Well, Lorde says not so fast.
