Lorde surprises lucky NYC cashier with free concert tickets
A simple smoothie run turned out to be an encounter of a lifetime for Lorde and a fan.
The New Zealand artist is preparing for her headlining set at Governor’s Ball in New York City, and stopped by a Liquiteria for some fuel on Tuesday. While at the juice shop, she was recognized by the cashier who happened to be a fan.
“This is my first smoothie for a famous person. She got a Blue Velvet, I am shook,” Twitter user and Liquiteria employee @ThatEmely exclaimed in a video, before flipping the camera to show an excited Lorde. The video was shared on Twitter and quickly went viral.
Not long after, @ThatEmely received the message of a lifetime.
“Come to governors ball on me,” Lorde messaged her. “I was gonna ask u in the store if u wanted to come but I got shy,” she wrote.
That Emely tweeted screenshots of their conversation, adding “woke up trying to figure out if last night was a dream or real life…”
Safe to say it might just be both.
