No Offense Taken

Lorde Unfazed by ‘South Park’ Sendup

Singer-songwriter Lorde says she’s not offended by a recent story line in a South Park episode that depicts her true identity as a male who cross-dresses because he wants to use the women’s restroom. The 17-year-old New Zealand artist, best known for her smash hit “Royals,” actually seems flattered. On Twitter ,she called her South Park caricature “weird and cool.” The singer, whose real name is Ella Yelich-O’Connor, was featured on the crass cartoon show for two straight weeks.
