Lorde Does Pretty Pretty Princess at the VMAs

MTV, continuing on from the MTV Movie and TV Awards earlier in the year, has abolished gender-specific categories with male and female artists competing against each other.

Lorde's freaky interpretive dance routine had everyone scratching their heads. But rather than sing the song, she pressed play on a boombox and did an interpretive dance to the track around the stage - skipping and live vocals or lip-sync attempts and leaving a lot of fans confused.

Lorde's performance at the MTV VMAs was, as expected, an artistic spectacle, but there was one thing glaringly missing from the pop star's show: her voice. She didn't sing, but she did get hoisted into the air by her backup dancers.

Despite what you may have felt during Lorde's performance, this was definitely a big moment for this year's MTV VMAs.

She also kept a smile on her face throughout the entire dance (the last time you were this happy it was because the Starbucks barista you have a crush on spelled your name right).

Later, the sick singer took the stage for a performance of her new single "Homemade Dynamite". Another amusing note: in the introduction, Jack Antonoff notes that he's seen Lorde eat gas station sushi, which we all know is a sure fire way to pursue death. "You can't tell in these pictures but i have the flu so bad i needed an IV (intravenous drip)", she explained.

Today's MTV VMAs are being held in Inglewood and are hosted by Katy Perry.
