Gigs aren’t known for being quiet places, but Lorde’s gigs are a different story.
The New Zealand pop star is going viral for shhh fans who sing any of her songs while she performs live.
A video in question went viral on social media earlier this month, and now many other fans have shared her doing the same thing at other concerts.
In fact, one funny fan even made a compilation of clips of the 25-year-old singer shushing fans on several different shows.
This videoshared by Twitter user KULONSITE, has now been viewed more than 1.5 million times on the platform, with the singer’s fans basking in the quirky moments.
The musician – whose real name is Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor – always seems to demand silence from the crowd during the same song, “Writer In The Dark”, a track from her 2017 album, Melodrama.
The song is a heartbreaking anthem that showcases Lorde’s vocals and she often performs parts of the acapella song.
The star’s downfall was revealed when her performance at a New York concert in 2017 went viral on April 11.
The reaction was somewhat mixed, with some fans saying this particular gig became “awkward” after she silenced the crowd.
However, the shh has led to the creation of a new meme, with social media users sharing the joke from afar this week.
“Lorde when she sees her fans open their mouths to sing,” one user joked, alongside a clip of Kris Jenner holding a gun.
While another shared a clip of Lorde saying, “Shut up!” with the caption: “Lorde when the crowd starts singing.”
Some are unimpressed, with one fan tweeting, “I don’t believe a pop artist should silence their fans who paid a lot of money to see you and show their enthusiasm by singing along. It’s not the symphony. If you think this song should be heard in silence, don’t play it in front of a group of thousands.”
Meanwhile, another fan defended the star, tweeting, “It’s the only song she does this for. It’s an extremely emotional song for her and when she performs it, it’s her voice and sound. experience.”
Another added: “It seems like in bigger rooms she doesn’t mind. Which I understand. In a smaller room she probably can’t even get along with everyone shouting lyrics to their voices bass lol.”
Clips of the shushing are also going viral on TikTok, with users of the platform also having a field day with memes and jokes.
