Watch Lorde Totally Own An Awkward Wardrobe Malfunction Onstage At Splendour In The Grass

...

New Zealand national treaure Lorde was in Byron Bay last night to headline Day 1 of the annual Splendour In The Grass festival, but her performance hit a bit of a snag early on.

Actually the opposite really, something must have un-snagged, because the Kiwi pop kween almost had herself a Janet Jackson moment during the blockbuster set, when the glittery silver crop top she was sporting came undone.

Luckily, good old Ella Yelich managed to avoid a #nipplegate scenario, handling the wardrobe malfunction like an absolute boss (or, well, a Lord) and politely excusing herself to sprint offstage and get re-dressed before carrying on with the show.

“My, uh, shirt has become disconnected from my body,” she politely informed the 35,000 punters on site. “Will you give me a second to fix this and I’ll run back?

Praise the Lorde! What a pro.
