The pop star is in hot water with fans after posting photo of a bathtub with lyrics from the late Whitney Houston's biggest hit. The caption under the picture of a filling tub is the chorus from Houston's "I Will Always Love You." Houston accidentally drowned in a hotel bathtub in 2012. Lorde took down the post after about an hour and issued an apology on Instagram.
The 21-year-old New Zealand-born pop star called the quote extremely, extremely poorly chosen. She wrote she hadn't put together the photo, the song lyric, and how Houston died. Lorde wrote, quote, "I'm an idiot."
