It Finally Happened — Lorde met her ‘Royals’ inspiration, baseball hall-of-famer George Brett!
The 17-year-old singer invited the former Kansas City Royals player to hang out with her before her Las Vegas concert on Tuesday night (April 15) and he gladly accepted.
“And now you’re Royal. @lordemusic meets @Royals icon George Brett,” the MLB posted with one shot of the two together.
The Royals team Twitter captioned another: “And we’ve come full circle! .@GeorgeHBrett, the inspiration for Grammy Award-winning song Royals, meets @Lordemusic.”
George became the inspiration for Lorde‘s Grammy-winning tune after she saw an image of him in National Geographic “of this dude just signing baseballs. He was a baseball player and his shirt said, ‘Royals.’ It was just that word. It’s really cool.”
