But Lorde wasn't having it, causing some of her own controversy against Ye.
The singer noticed that Kanye's stage design seemed eerily similar to 2017 stage at Coachella, as well as her Melodrama tour, with the elevated glass box.
Posting a side-by-side comparison shot on her Instagram Story, she called Yeezy out.
"I’m proud of the work that I do and it’s flattering when other artists feel inspired by it, to the extent that they choose to try it on themselves,” she wrote in the final slide. “But don’t steal—not from women or anyone else—not in 2018 or ever.”
Lorde worked with design company TAIT to come up with her stage design, with the company saying that the element of the raised glass box provided an "innovative way to transform her set and choreography into a whole new setting."
TAIT has also worked with Kanye in the past, in 2011.
