Lorde surprises shop assistant with Governors Ball invite

Emely Paula Medina, an employee at NY smoothie store Liquiteria, said Lorde was the "first famous person" she had served a smoothie to and declared herself "shook" in a video posted to her Twitter feed with the caption "She made my morning".

Emely Paula Medina originally posted a video of her serving Lorde, saying she was "shook" to be in her presence.

Liquiteria employee Emely posted a video saying the singer was the first famous person she'd ever served.

Lorde will be attending the upcoming Governors Ball with a special guest - the cashier she met when she went to go get a smoothie.

After the surprise visit, Lorde then messaged her on Twitter and invited the worker to her forthcoming show at the Governors Ball on June 2. She responded to the musician writing, "No way- this is a joke right?".

Foreign fighters among militants in Philippines
A number of foreign militants have had a presence in the southern Philippines for decades, including some of Asia's most-wanted. Hapilon, an Arabic-speaking Islamic preacher known for his expertise in commando assaults, pledged allegiance to ISIS in 2014.

It seems like Emely is going to take Lorde, real name Ella Yelich O'Connor, up on her offer as she informed her followers she had invited her best friend along too.

Needless to say, Medina has accepted Lorde's kind invitation, and posted again to Twitter the morning after her fantastic celebrity encounter, saying "Woke up trying to figure out if last night was a dream or real life".

Lorde is in NY this week to perform at the upcoming Governor's Ball in the area this weekend. "To celebrate ur new job [sic]".

Other performers across the weekend include Chance the Rapper, Phoenix, Tool, Childish Gambino, and Cage the Elephant.
