Sorry, Disciples! We guess she really DID hate you calling yourselves that.


Despite being booked to play the UniSA Gear Up festival and planning an Aussie tour this year, it looks like our favourite friend from across the ditch has ditched us in favour of a string of dates in the US instead.

Lorde was recently announced to play Coachella, and while she's so hot after her double Grammy win, the 17-year-old is going to capitalise by forgetting tiny Australia and going for the big fish - America. A spokesperson for the Gear Up fest had this to say:

“It’s been an amazing rise for Lorde and we are extremely happy for her success. Unfortunately, this success has meant that she has had to pull-out of her commitment to appear at Gear Up 2014 … She’s a fantastic artist and it would have been amazing to have an artist of that calibre, so early in their career at our festival.”

Bet you're glad you caught her at the Laneway Fest now, aren't you?
