If Lorde hadn’t lost Album of the Year to Bruno Mars at the Grammys last Sunday, she probably would have gone up stage and gushed a bit over her muse Jack Antonoff before thanking her fans. But sadly her fans never got that shout-out. They were even denied a thank-you interpretive dance performance. Lorde could have hopped on Instagram and thanked them for sticking with her while the Grammys snubbed her album Melodrama. But Lorde is a spirit from the past haunting the body of a moody 21-year-old, so she thanked them in a much more vintage way.
Lorde was the only artist nominated for Album of The Year who didn’t get asked to perform solo at last night’s Grammy Awards ceremony. Lorde was also the only woman nominated for Album of The Year for her sophomore album Melodrama. According to Billboard, some are calling this discrepancy a mere mathematical matter of limited stage time and some are calling it sexist as fuck. Sexist? The music industry? Knock me over with a feather.
It didn’t take long after Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff announced they were over for stories to come out about how he’s moved on and was dating a “musician“. People also questioned who his rumored “musician” rebound was and the bets were being placed on Lorde. But don’t you dare ever think of Jack and Lorde in such a way! Whether or not Jack and Lorde are engaging in sacred heterosexual acts of boy-on-girl dating rituals is none of your business. Lorde confirmed she too wasn’t feeling the speculation by retweeting Jack’s tweet.
normally i would never address rumors but i resent having the most important friendships and working relationships in my life reduced to dumb hetero normative gossip. those relationships are deeply important and sacred. with that said, im not seeing anyone. lol.

Hetero normative gossip? I know Jack swears he’s single, but he and Lena Dunham really ought to think about finding a way to make it work between the two of them. They’re obviously soul mates.
And you hear that ladies? Jack is single and ready to mingle! But only if you’re seriously invested in such a deep commitment as dual-single mingling. No casual hook-ups need apply. Please provide letters of reference from at least two previous sacred relationships, as well as a brief description on what “deep” means to you.
Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff of Fun. and Bleachers fame officially broke up this week after five years of him having to deal with her broadcasting every thought in her head to the dismay of many. In a related story, Dlisted’s own Allison may have been revealed to be a powerful psychic, because she guessed that the “musician” that Jack might be currently dating is his new favorite artist – interpretive dancing queen Lorde. He produced her latest record. Allison, we’re not going to need you to cough up the Powerball numbers now. Thank you. Continue reading
The nominations for the 60th Grammy awards were announced this morning, and Jay-Z led with eight nominations. I suppose you could say that Jay-Z is the Beyoncé of this year’s Grammys? Although she actually got one this year too, for Best Rap/Sung Performance. I’m sure it’s a big day in the Knowles Carter house. Congratulations on your Grammy nomination, Beyonce! And also, you know, good job on all the ones you got today too, Jay-Z.
Lorde was supposed to perform her latest despondent art school teen song, “Homemade Dynamite,” at the MTV VMAs last night. Unfortunately, Lorde came down with the flu before showtime. Lorde must be her own pushy stage mom, because flu be damned, Lorde still went out there and put on a show!
