Lorde: 'I was using parties as escapism'

  Lorde: 'I was using parties as escapism' Lorde is back with another hypnotic party anthem. Sober is the fourth song the New Zealander has shared off her forthcoming second album, Melodrama (out June 16), and it's a broody departure from towering first single Green Light. Over erupting horns and a skittering beat, Lorde (real name: Ella Yelich-O'Connor) recounts the all-too-relatable experience of being unable to express your feelings without some liquid courage.

There’s no way anyone could accomplish such a feat.

AND YET, here’s this man, proving all the skeptics wrong and basking in his fleeting internet glory.

In case you need to be caught up to speed: A gentleman, referred to only as “Brazilian man,” performed an incredible balancing act on his way through a supermarket checkout lane to save one of his items from hitting the floor. It’s a magnificent three-part kick that indicates years of hacky sack practice.

Let’s deconstruct this four-second clip. First, Brazilian man kicks the item with his left foot. Then, using his right foot, he sends it high above his head. Finally, he hits the behind-the-back right kick to launch the item back into his hands and proceed out of the store.

I can’t breathe.

Some folks out in the darkest, most cynical corners of the internet have already decried the stunt as “fake news.” And you know what? Fine, maybe it does kind of look like our hero intentionally tossed the item out of his hands so he could wow his audience of teenage bag handlers. Maybe he practiced the move at home, or maybe he’s unleashed this trick at other stores. But to call this fake news? Sorry, bucko, but it happened! We have footage! I saw it with my own two eyes, and so did the 24,000 other people who retweeted it!

Norway’s threat to Brazil: Cut deforestation, or we’ll cut your funding .
The Amazon rainforest, of which 60 per cent sits within Brazilian borders, is known as the world’s lungs. But in recent decades, the rapid spread of deforestation throughout the rainforest has threatened the Amazon and the animals and plants who live within it. Norway has recently announced it intends to cut funding to Brazil unless it makes a commitment to stop cutting down the rainforest.
