A few weeks ago someone asked if I've heard Lorde. I said "Yes" with confidence, thinking I knew a lot about the subject. I forgot to take the language barriers into account. When this person said Lorde it sounded just like I would say Lordi in Swedish.
I said, "I didn't think that would be your kind of music."
"Oh yes, I love her. Can't believe she's just sixteen."
"Sixteen? Guess she's new. I didn't know there's a girl in the band, but it's hard to see behind the masks, of course."
"The monster masks."
Yeah, not talking about the same thing...
Lordi is a Finnish hard rock band that wears monster masks and - funny enough - won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2006.
I Googled Lorde. She is... not that.
