Lorde - Yellow Flicker Beat (Live at American... by uploaderdisney
She may not have actually been around to see it in it's original form -- but 18-year-old Lorde is one grunge rocker!
The New Zealander took to the stage at the 2014 American Music Awards on Sunday, and instead of being a somber moody gal -- she was all punk rock with her new single, "Yellow Flicker Beat" from soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1
The teenager began the performance inside a box on the stage, then as the box lifted, the curly-haired songstress violently thrashed and head banged all around stage.
Lorde bounced around the stage in a white crop top and black pants as the star-studded audience watched. Lorde's BFF Taylor Swift, who opened the show with her new single "Blank Space," was in the crowd and couldn't help but dance around to the bumpin' tune. And judging fron the pics it looks like the feud between the baby goth and Taylor's longtime bestie Selena Gomez has ended.
Last January, Lorde said that Gomez’s hit song “Come & Get It” was antifeminist in an interview with Rolling Stone
. “I’m a feminist and the theme of her song is, ‘When you’re ready, come and get it from me. ... I’m sick of women being portrayed this way.”
Gomez did her best to combat the Grammy winner's words with her Flaunt
magazine, saying, “That’s not feminism. [Lorde is] not supporting other women. That’s my honest opinion, that’s what I would say to her if I saw her.”
Well it looks like that troubled water's all under the bridge now! Taylor Swift really can fix anything -- even girl fights!
After the AMAs, we bet all three of them baked some cookies and braided each other's hair -- aka T-Swift's dream night.

These ladies never miss a good photo op!
Kendall and Kylie Jenner tagged along with Khloe Kardashian to last night's AMA's in downtown L.A., and the reality stars looked gorgeous as they walked the red carpet, but they're always so done up that it almost seemed like just another day in their glamorous world!
The E! starlets were tasked with presenting the Pop/Rock Female award, and Kendall managed to read the teleprompter correctly this time, unlike when she flubbed her lines at the Bilboard Music Awards and declared she "wasn't good at reading" earlier this year.
We wonder if it was awkward that the model's ex Harry Styles was in attendance? We also wonder if things between the teenage entrepreneurs and Selena Gomez were frosty, considering they've been hanging out with her ex Justin Bieber? So much drama in young Hollywood these days!

She didn't bring down the house -- she nearly burnt it down!
Last night Taylor Swift opened the American Music Awards with an over-the-top performance of her hit new tune "Blank Space," and from awesome pyrotechnics to going crazy on her love interests, the 24-year-old superstar went all out.
This was essentially a live recreation of her music video for the song, and while T. Swizzle makes fun of her highly-publicized love life, she does it with enough flair to silence the haters. And that's not all!
While accepting the Dick Clark Award for Excellence, she took a jab at Spotify when she said, "To the fans who went out and bought over a million copies of my last three albums, what you did by going out and investing in music and albums is you're saying you believe in the same thing I believe in – that music is valuable and that music should be consumed in albums and albums should be consumed as art and appreciated."
In case you missed it, check out her performance below ... and if you want to see some of T. Swizzle's awesomely bad dance moves, click thru to see her groove with Jessie J!

Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea certainly know how to wow the crowed. The two teamed up for a performance of "Booty" at last night's 2014 American Music Awards -- and they certainly know how to werk it!
The two were booty shakin', booty slappin' and bootylicious for their sexy collab -- and it sounds like the crowd was loving it! The two pranced about the stage in glittery metallic leotards as patterened lights flashed them. Get an polka-dot filled eyeful of the sultry situation!
Earlier in the night, JLo had all eyes on her when she took to the AMA red carpet in a nude number. Jenny from the Block showed off her toned torso when she slinked down the red carpet in Reem Acra dress, Norman Silverman Diamond earrings and Christian Louboutin heels.
Damn, did she look good!

Selena Gomez got quite emotional while singing her new single, "The Heart Wants What It Wants," at the 2014 American Music Awards on Sunday -- in fact, she actually broke down and cried at the end of her performance!
Gomez closed her eyes and the audience heard that infamous audio recording of her sobbing about Justin Bieber dumping her, and during the heartbreaking song, there were all sorts of dramatic visuals playing on the screen behind the pop star. Gomez wore a gorgeous nude Giorgio Armani dress and looked absolutely stunning, and though she kept her composure for the duration of her set, she cried as soon as her performance was over.
Of course, cameras cut right to a sympathetic-looking Taylor Swift, and the day before her AMA performance, SG posted an Instagram vid talking about what she had planned for fans. "More than anything I’m just excited that people can, everywhere, who are feeling what I feel and feel that, will get to see THAT," she said, referring to her heartache. "And I just want people to be able to relate to that."

The American Music Awards were held at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, and though Pitbull hosted the show, it was all about the red carpet and A-list performances. Sorry Mr. Worldwide!
One Direction emerged as the big winners of the night, snagging Artist of the Year, Favorite Pop/Rock Band and Favorite Album, and Katy Perry lost out to the boys in the Artist of the Year category, but she also won three trophies, for Favorite Female Pop/Rock Artist, Single of the Year and Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist. Too bad she wasn't there to accept her awards though! The starlet is currently in Australia for her Prismatic World Tour, so she had a legit excuse...
Taylor Swift kicked off the show with an amazing rendition of her new hit song "Blank Space," and her acceptance speech later on was just as fiery as her set! Taylor was honored with the Dick Clark Award for Excellence, and she took a major swipe at Spotify after graciously accepting the award from R&B legend Diana Ross.
"To the fans who went out and bought over a million copies of my last three albums, what you did by going out and investing in music and albums is you're saying you believe in the same thing I believe in – that music is valuable and that music should be consumed in albums and albums should be consumed as art and appreciated," she said. Well put!
Beyonce had a good night as well, snagging the Favorite Album and Favorite Female R&B Artist awards ... Click thru to see the complete list of winners!

Kim Kardashian is in Dubai and Kanye West is in China, but luckily there are no shortage of Kardashian family members to look after the supercouple's darling daughter Nori!
On Sunday the 17-month-old celebritot hung out with cousins Mason and Penelope while a very pregnant aunt Kourtney Kardashian and grandma Kris Jenner kept a watchful eye. The group stopped by Kidz Korner in Calabasas, and when it was time to leave, Nori threw a little bit of a fit when Kris separated her from her cousins.
We know Yeezy was on a biz trip in Asia, so what was mother of the year Kim up to? Partying it up with sister Khloe's boyfriend French Montana in a skintight white dress:

These two get along perfectly!
The best way to get over an ex is by hanging with your closest friends and that's exactly what Selena Gomez did on Friday night when she linked up with Taylor Swift to check out The 1975 concert at The Hollywood Palladium.
The duo, who were reportedly at odds for a myriad of reasons, showed no signs of a rift as they looked extremely jovial in some snapshots Swift posted to her Instagram account with the caption, "The 1975 at The Palladium. @selenagomez @elliegoulding."
Clearly these two were meant for each other as they seem to remain tight through thick or thin (or embellished reports).
Everyone needs a go to pal!
