Even if you didn’t make it to Camp Flog Gnaw to watch Kanye West and Kid Cudi perform in person, you’ll perhaps have seen the duo’s stage design at the Tyler, the Creator-hosted carnival somewhere on social media. On Sunday (November 11), the two hip-hop artists hit the stage together to make their live debut as Kids See Ghosts. As captured in numerous Instagram photos and videos, the duo delivered their set in a massive, suspending glass box against colorful visuals and flame effects.

The stage design has attracted not only the attention of fans, but it has also caught that of Lorde, who took to Instagram on Monday to call out Kanye and his collaborator for copying her idea. In a series of Instagram Stories, the singer points out the similarities between Kids See Ghosts’ stage and hers from her Melodrama tour earlier this year, which also featured a rectangular glass box hanging in the air.

“I’m proud of the work I do and it’s flattering when other artist feel inspired by it, to the extent that they choose to try it on themselves,” Lorde writes in one of her posts, implying that she believes the rappers took inspiration from her concert. “But don’t steal — not from women or anyone else — not in 2018 or ever.”

Take a look at the comparison images below to see it for yourself.

@lordemusic is throwing some serious shade in her stories towards Kanye and @kidcudi ’s direction for their Kids See Ghosts set last night and we’re here for it….if only because of the irony of @kimkardashian calling out @ysl earlier this year for copying Ye’s set design from his 2016 Saint Pablo tour when he apparently invented suspending light bulbs from above lol. We’re no experts in stage design, but does Lorde have a case here? Let’s all just take this as a chance to appreciate @alexandermcqueen’s glass wind tunnel, suspended above a floor level runway, from his FW03 show. • #lorde #melodrama #kanyewest #kanye #yeezy #kidcudi #kidsseeghosts #tour #setdesign #stagedesign #concert #kimkardashian #kuwtk #ysl #saintlaurent #pfw #parisfashionweek #wiwt #ootd #anthonyvaccarello #dietprada
