We learned last year that Lorde's star-making single "Royals" was inspired by this 1976 photo of George Brett. Worlds re-collided in Las Vegas last night, where Lorde's camp had invited Brett to come hang out before her show.
Congratulations to Lorde, your newest Pop Solo Performance Grammy award winner. She won for "Royals," which was inspired by this National Geographic photo of George Brett.
Lorde sings songs. One particularly popular song is called "Royals," which you've probably heard. Recently, she mentioned the song was inspired by a picture of a baseball player she saw in an old National Geographic. The magazine confirmed it was this picture of a happier George Brett signing autographs.
In a video probably made only for SEO purposes, three members of the Royals—James Shields, Eric Hosmer, and hitting coach George Brett—chowed down on baby food.
The 30th anniversary of the infamous George Brett pine tar game is July 24.

Upset over the rampant criticism of Royals' manager Trey Hillman, the Hall of Famer unloaded on a local tv reporter when asked about it. Total bleeps in this 80 second interview? Five.
Baseball players, you see, they're pranksters. Whether it's the hot foot, the rookie hazing or just a cream pie in the face during a television interview, those ballplayers, they like to fool around.
