Umm..did Lorde sit front row at Kanye West’s fashion show with PINK EYE? The singer took to Instagram to pose for a selfie after the Yeezy Season 2 event, and her right eyelid was looking noticeably bruised, purple and swollen. Yikes! Check out the descriptive message she wrote to go along with it!
Lorde, 18, is working HARD on her new music, and it might be taking a toll on her body. Rather than getting slammed by critics for showing up to Kanye West’s show at New York Fashion Week with a swollen and bruised eye, she took matters into her own hands by addressing the situation head-on with an Instagram post.
In two different pictures, the 18-year-old shows a close up of her face, with her left eye fully made up with dramatic, winged liner, and her left eye undone, looking totally purple. “one question. What happened to your eye?” she captioned the first post. She never does reveal what the exact problem is…but could it be the highly-contagious pink eye?!
In the second pic, Lorde — whose album you can buy here — delved into a bit longer, almost TMI, explanation. “the skin is peeling off my lips and hands these days I very rarely see the sun and my eye is weeping and screaming,” she explained. “and it’s fashion week and everyone already thinks i’m strange and it’s a kanye show where the freaks are beautiful so why not say f— it and let’s dance with the melodrama.”
Okay, we hear ya, girl, but if it is pink eye that’s plaguing her, is it smart to be going out to such a public event, where she was seated in such close quarters to other people? The “Royals” singer was in the front row, right next to Kourtney Kardashian, and just seats away from Kim Kardashian and her 2-year-old daughter, North West!
Whatever’s going on, Lorde didn’t let it get in the way of herself having a great time. “ps the show was crazy,” she added. “I got to wear sneakers and had the best bear hug from drizzy and now i’m in bed in a sweater editing something cool for you guys to see very soon.” Umm….we can NOT WAIT!

HollywoodLifers, do you think Lorde should’ve attended Kanye’s show with her eye looking like this?
