Lorde (Glastonbury 2017)

Twenty-year-old Newzealander, Lorde, took the gamble to go for a big production number with her Glastonbury debut performance. Risking being overwhelmed by the scale of the stage, the singer came through unscathed, delivering up songs in front of a giant glass shipping container that was raised above the stage and slowly filled with party people.

I can't believe you have decided to have a concert in Israel and cross the Palestinian picket line! Shame on you!!! I had so much respect for you and your music and I listened to your music all the time. You made some pretty bold statements once at the Grammy. Now look at yourself. Greed and a lack of basic humanity. Holly wood has clearly changed you!

Here are some of the Tee shirts of the Israeli soldiers you are going to entertain in Israel. . . Not sure if you want them to be sold as your tour merch though. . . As part of your Israel tour.

LORDE, Do you really want to play in a state where children are kidnapped and jailed on a daily basis? #FreeAhed Tamimi :16-year-old activist in the occupied #Palestinian village of Nabi Saleh arrested by Israeli military. #BDS #ApartheidIsrael #FreePalestine

Thank you SO MUCH, Lorde for doing the right thing! One day Palestine will be free and it will be because people like you have done the right thing & not "normalized" the despicable actions of "Israel" by engaging in cultural exchange (and/or academic, or commerce) with the apartheid State.

You people are so funny 🤣 Your "boycott" is miserable and pathetic. Israel is an advanced country, the only democracy in the Middle East. Why would she not have a show there? Israeli producers have already confirmed that the show will take place as planned, like Nick cave , guns & roses , radiohead and many more...

Totally disappointed in you. How uninformed are you to boycott Israel, the ONLY democracy in the Middle East. If you actually went, you could make your OWN opinion and not be swayed by these ideas- “children kidnapped”, etc.

If Lorde does pull out of the June 2018 performance in Tel Aviv she would join a long list of pop stars that have chosen to boycott Israel out of support for Palestinian sovereignty. Stevie Wonder, Roger Waters, Brian Eno, Carlos Santana, Elvis Costello, The Klaxons and the Pixies are among the musicians that have previously cancelled Israeli tour dates as part of the 'Boycott, Divest, Sanctions' (#BDS) movement. www.sbs.com.au/news/calls-for-lorde-to-boycott-israel-tour-date

You've distinguished yourself by your abject stupidity by cowing to BDS and ilk. You won't perform in THE ONLY DEMOCRACY IN THE MIDDLE EAST? To hell with you. Your career will be merely a footnote in a few years since KARMA BITES. You've certainly showed your ignorance.

So disappointed in you! You cowardly caved in to the anti-Semitic BDS and cancelled your Israel tour. Shame on you. BTW, what other countries do you boycott? Well, you only deserve to be boycotted yourself. Never listening to you again or attending your concerts. Hopefully many others take the moral stand and boycott you! No surrender to haters and anti-Semites.

Lorde thank you so much for cancelling your gig in Tel Aviv!! And taking a stand for the Palestinian people, so much respect for you ..you will be remembered on the right side of history, thank you from the bottom of my heart. 👼👼👼✌

Dear Lorde, You’re an amazing musician and singer, so great that people around the world love your music and lyrics. Music is something that brings people together, and is so wonderful when it’s used as a tool to create goodwill among humans. When people tell you that you can make a statement for peace by not playing in Israel you are caving in to haters. BDS (Boycott, Divest, and Sanction) is an antisemitic organization that wants to see the demise of the State of Israel. This group uses many of the same tactics and words that the Nazis used against the Jewish population. It would be a pity to see you make this mistake with your eyes wide open. Go to Israel, see the truth, and perform with a peaceful conscience.

Hope you'll bring the great gear, Lorde, when you join great artists like Paul McCartney, Cindy Lauper and Nick Cave in supporting cultural exchange and continuing your trip to Israel. #BridgesNotBoycotts

Please do not perform in a country that breaks every international law, has zero consideration for human rights and is committing ethic cleansing on a regular basis. The world is watching them and I thought better of you. 🙏 🇯🇴🇯🇴🇯🇴

Please don't cancel your Israel show. Don't let haters and bigots deny the people of Israel (and the whole Middle East for that matter) of a great show!

Disappointed with your decision to boycott Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East. Although the country does have its share of problems (as any country does), boycotts are not the answer. Music has the rare ability to bring people together, and promote understanding of the other.

Caved in to the bullying and lying from BDS. They are an in your face group that promotes hatred and ignorance. Israel is a beautiful nation where peoples of all cultures share liberties and a love of life that you will not see anywhere else. You will find out that the vicious accusations of "apartheid" and "illegal occupation" are nonsense. Entertainers need to show backbone in the face of fist shaking and intimidation from groups like BDS and Justice For Palestine.

To all the people complaining.. why do you not care about Ukraine? About LGBT being rounded up? Lack of freedom? Lack of free press and a mock election.. And yet she will still go to Russia. Hypocrites the lot of you.

Lord will be ashamed As an artist you boycott an entire country? Have you been told that Israel is a problematic country? Did you check? And a leading artist who is following people with so many followers, you made a mistake! Israel is a democratic, peace-loving and loving country Have you heard about Hamas? Google will do ... a terrorist organization that murders innocent civilians in Gaza. Have you heard of Gaza?

How dare you! Israel is the only democratic state in the middle east! country and you're NOT going to perform there? You're on the wrong side of history little one. As an American I'm embarrassed for you. Shame.

Lorde dear why you canceled your concert in Israel 🇮🇱? Don’t listen to people that say bad stuff about Israel 🇮🇱 I hope you will come someday to and do a concert don’t be scared ❤️

Please do not go to Israel! With what Trump is trying to do your timing is really bad. Please learn about the people of Palestinian. IF you still choose to go I will sadly choose to no longer support you or your music. Please learn about history.

Another artist that became brainwashed by arab anti-Western propaganda. But yeeeees, stupid politics are more important than the fans and music itself... meh

Thank you Lorde for supporting cultural exchange and continuing your trip to Israel. #BridgesNotBoycotts

You cancel your performance in Israel, but have no problem playing in Russia whose leadership has occupied Crimea, is fighting against Ukraine and supports a dictator in Syria that slaughtered and gassed its own people. What a hypocrisy!

Caving into the #BDS movement seems beneath you. I really do hope you educate yourself and understand what Israel is like & how people live- you are missing out. Until then I will no longer listen or buy your music until u reverse your #BDS stance.

Do you really care that much about your ego and your bank balance that you will go legitimize the brutal Occupation of Palestine?:-(

Dear Lorde. I hope you cancel your concert in Israel. Playing in Israel now is like playing in South Africa during the apartheid regime. Please support the freedom struggle of the Palestinian people by refraining from entertaining the occupant regime.

Thank You Lorde for standing up for human rights. I applaud you. Our small country has a proud history of activism against apartheid e.g H.A.R.T (halt all racist tours). In the words of Abraham Lincoln "All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."

So this demon says ........The Israeli minister of education Naftali Bennett : The Palestinian girl Ahd Al Tamami should spend her whole life in the jails.

Thank you Lorde for standing up for what is right. Thank you for listing to the plea of Palestinian society asking you to cancel your tour in Israel. Thank you for listing to the voices of those that are in favor of ending the occupation. Thank you for not whitewashing the occupation. You are the best, much love and much respect...

Well that most certainly puts a new light on you as a performer & a Human Being, a disgrace for Human Rights & Dignity. Drop into Palestine whilst your there & see what Zionism is all about as Israhell is Zionism & Israehell is Palestine, disgraceful. !!!!!

You have a strong and beautiful voice. Please don't use it to sing for apartheid Israel and respect the Palestinian's call to boycott until their human rights are respected.

Dear Ella, I have great admiration for your integrity and talent. You are a shinning light for your generation. There is controversy much over your upcoming concert in the State of Israel. I can only ask that you consider how to approach this situation as it is political no matter what you may believe. A little thought-food for you on your trip to Israel.... An unknown Palestinian girl, Ahed Tamimi, was dragged out of her bed in the night and arrested. Ahed is a child, and like thousands of Palestinian children she could be humiliated and abused while in Israeli hands. Children have been shot for throwing stones at Israeli soldiers. There is wrong on both sides, however waging war on children is immoral and nothing makes it right. You may see this as an opportunity as an outsider looking in, but you will only be shown what they want you to see. No war justifies hurting children, they are supposed to be the future. These Palestinian Children have no future that is not controlled by soldiers. Ahed's been on the frontline defending Palestine since she was 7 years old. Now Ahed needs us to stand up for her. Will you be one of the voices to do this? It was before you were born, but our country NZ stood up against the apartheid that existed in South Africa. Rugby wasn't just Rugby. The Springbok Tour of NZ protests tore our families and friendships apart, but the spirit of intent helped another country change it's policies and eventually a mind set. In this world no one cannot be unaffected by what is going on in another country. There are not boundaries because we all live on this one planet, planet earth.

So excited to hear you are playing in Tel Aviv! Let's hope music can be a bridge not a divisive force. Plus Tel Aviv is a fabulous city and I am sure you will have an appreciative audience!

These claims against Israel are such lies. Go to Israel. Music is about creating bridges and spreading love, not building walls and giving in to hate. You're smart enough to go to Israel and see for yourself that what the anti-Israel haters say is a lie. This is why they don't want you to go, they're afraid their lies will be exposed.

Thank you Lorde: ignore the venom & prattle - you have made the right decision. It’s more important now than ever before to bravely stand for justice and humanity. Greatest respect.

I can't believe you have decided to have a concert in Israel and cross the Palestinian picket line! Shame on you!!! I had so much respect for you and your music and I listened to your music all the time. You made some pretty bold statements once at the Grammy. Now look at yourself. Greed and a lack of basic humanity. Holly wood has clearly changed you!

BDS intimidates singer. Look who supports BDS. Frankly, if you align with BDS knowing this, you're no better than they are. Game, set and match.

I stand with Israel. Please stand with us and take your art to the people. Then, perhaps, if your security allows it, perform also in Gaza.

So glad to hear that you are going to perform in Israel. Bridges and conversations - not boycotts - are the way forward.

@Lorde speak to Thom Yorke, Nick Cave, Bon Jovi, Morrissey, Paul McCartney and the many others in your business who have not given into hate and gone to play in Israel. The way to peace is to engage and not give into the hate which you are seeing. There is more than one side to the story. Most of those against will only be happy when Israel no longer exists. I am sure that is not what you want to support?

Thank you Lorde for supporting cultural exchange and continuing your trip to Israel. #BridgesNotBoycotts

I have so much respect for you Lorde. As a South African who lived under the brutality and oppression of Apartheid, we had no voice either. You "speaking" on behalf of those without a voice has given hope to many Palestinians today. Thank you for your courage and humanity. May your career grow from strength to strength.

Oh please don't play Tel Aviv, you will lose so many fans....we ask you please to honor the boycott......I look forward to you coming to Seattle and people in Seattle are very aware of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement....it is not all about money, it is about being a person that stands for justice and cares about other human beings....<3

Dear Lorde: PLEASE! DO NOT cancel your performance in Israel! Give yourself the opportunity of seeing for yourself what a vibrant, beautiful and democratic country Israel is! Unfortunately, many people who have never been to the Middle East are uninformed about the reality of Israel and have been swayed by years of lies and propaganda by a hostile media! You owe it to yourself to see the truth for yourself. Please play in Israel- you won't regret it! Thank you.

You will love Israel and they will love you! The only democratic country in the middle east. Please do not get swayed by the lies presented to you by the BDS movement!

Your decision to boycott Israel is very stupid ! And will be counter productive ! There are a lot of singers in the world !

Dear Lorde (or should I say Dear Ella), We’re not gonna dwell on the fact that your concert was simply put perfect : out-of-this-world vocals, and magnetic presence. In fact, I spent all night listening to your albums again and again, sobbing uncontrollably to them. I would however like to thank you for the connection I’ve been able to share you during this short but intense moment. You have always been this type of artist that matters on a personal level to me, and you have helped me go through so much in my life. I probably wouldn’t be where I am right now had I not discovered your music. You taught us that we were not what we thought we were, and certainly not liabilities. You taught us that it was okay to feel lost and not where we wanted to be yet. You taught us that we shouldn’t be afraid to be weird or awkward or to feel like an outcast, but that we should embrace it. You taught us that we were on each other’s team. But most importantly you were a voice that has been able to translate into words that feeling of coming of age, the slow yet brutal realization that navigating human relationships is far more complex than we thought, and that not everything and in fact almost nothing in life is binary. Hope you heard the « YAS QUEEN » I shouted at you 👸 Thank you for showing us perfect places yesterday night, you sweet little angel 👼🏼 💚 Sincerely yours, Pacome PS : should you answer, I promise not to overthink your punctuation use PS2: I also promise to stop with these lame lyric-related jokes

Lost my voice and seriously injured my neck yesterday from dancing way too much 😂 ! You were so lit 💛 !!
