Lorde Hangs with Kansas City “Royals” Legend George Brett

While it seems unlikely a 17-year-old singer from New Zealand and a 60-year-old Major League Baseball player would have anything in common, Lorde and George Brett have a very special connection.

Last night (April 15) the “Tennis Court” songstress met up with the Hall of Famer in Las Vegas after several failed attempts to coordinate their schedules.

The story is, Lorde was looking through a July 1976 copy of National Geographic when she saw a photo “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.”

Brett previously had to miss Lorde’s Kansas City concert, so he sent her an autographed jersey that read, “Lorde, you are Royal to me.”
