Lorde is taking her “South Park” “appearance” in stride. The Comedy Central show poked fun at the New Zealand singer, but she doesn’t seem to be bothered by it. She's remarked on the episodes several times. Now she's even singing along to it.
The character on the show -- Randy Marsh with a wig -- sang “I Am Lorde Ya Ya Ya.” She did the same during an interview with New Zealand’s TV3. “I was thinking, ‘Yeah he has a mustache,” she said, according to Consequence of Sound. “South Park” claimed Lorde was actually a 45-year-old male geologist from Colorado.
“I mean I have a mustache, but is it that prominent?’ But it was someone’s dad pretending to be me," she said. "We actually, in my hotel room, went ‘Ya ya ya ya ya I’m Lorde! Ya ya ya!’ for like an hour, because that’s why they do on the episode, so…”
She called the show “weird and cool” on Twitter. Lorde said she thinks the underlying message of the episodes -- she appeared in two -- was about transgender acceptance.
“This is actually surprisingly cute -- and from what I can tell also has a message of transgender acceptance (i'm still very new with this type of humour so i'm not sure if was actually genuine but it seemed so to me),” she wrote on Instagram. “Well s--- this is downright sweet,” Lorde posted in another video of the show. “Take that haters I got a south park episode.”
Lorde isn’t the only one who found the “South Park” episode touching. Some fans praised the show and said it celebrated the singer rather than mocking her, as it usually does to mainstream celebrities.
