Lorde was so sick with the flu at the VMAs that she needed an IV! That’s no condition to perform, but this is show business and that means the show must go on!

So rather than belt it out and risk her health, she threw together some interpretive dance choreography for her new song ‘Homemade Dynamite’.

I’ll admit it’s a little akward, but much less awkward than if she’d lip synced. And she owns it. Atta girl Lorde!
