Another day, another Kanye West feud. This time it's not with his long-running arch-enemy Taylor Swift – nor Drake or even his on-again, off-again pal, US President Donald Trump. This time, it's come from everyone's favourite New Zealander, Lorde.

The Green Light singer, 22, real name Ella Yelich-O'Connor, took to her Instagram stories on Tuesday to accuse West and Kid Cudi of stealing her set design – a floating see-through rectangular box suspended above a stage with different coloured back-lighting.
Lorde shared a number of images from her Melodrama tour that began in late 2017 and included her headlining stint at Coachella and West and Kid Cudi's show on Sunday night during their Camp Flog Gnaw performance in LA to highlight the apparent similarities.
She added, "I'm proud of the work I do and it's flattering when other artists feel inspired by it, to the extent that they choose to try it on themselves. But don't steal – not from women or anyone else – not in 2018 or ever."
West is yet to respond, but never one to hold his tongue, his reply is expected in due course. Stand by.
Meanwhile, the rest of the internet is split.
