Kansas City Royals was the inspiration behind Royals

  • The popular teenage star Lorde reportedly told VH1 in September that Kansas City Royals were the inspiration behind her popular single "Royals."

    This is what VH1 said about her statement: 

    "I had this image from the National Geographic of this dude just signing baseballs," Lorde told us when we sat down with her recently. "He was a baseball player and his shirt said, 'Royals.'" Lorde was so taken aback by the image and the word that she penned the song around that idea. "It was just that word. It's really cool."
