Lorde Shares Photo of “Weeping and Screaming” Purple Eye

Lorde pink eye

The biggest question at New York Fashion Week isn’t whether Kim Kardashian's baby bump is going to bust out of her body-hugging clothes — it's "Does Lorde have pink eye?"

The 18-year-old prompted the speculation when she posted a photo on Instagram on Wednesday, Sept. 16, that showed her right eye looking very, well, pink. Or kinda purple.

She then followed it up with another photo that showed that her eye wasn't her only problem — her dry lips look like they could use some ChapStick.

"The skin is peeling off my lips and hands," the songstress wrote. "These days i very rarely see the sun and my eye is weeping and screaming and it's fashion week and everyone already thinks i'm strange and it's a kanye show where the freaks are beautiful so why not say f— it and let's dance with the melodrama?"

The singer attended Kanye West's runway show earlier in the day, sitting in the front row next to Kourtney Kardashian and not far from Kim and her daughter, North West.

The teen is clearly working hard on new music, which could be the reason for her eye problem. In a tweet also posted on Wednesday she wrote, "I work every night and through the weekend and my body falls apart / i go see a show / watch my good eye open slow."

Lorde's new song with Disclosure, titled "Magnets," reportedly leaked online on Wednesday, and while she's not owning up to having pink eye, at least she's getting a little rest. In a PS on her Insta pic, she added, "Now I'm in bed in a sweater editing something cool for you guys to see very soon."
