Lorde’s planned appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards on September 12th has been canceled, announced the award ceremony on Friday (September 3rd). “Due to a change in the production elements, Lorde can no longer perform,” tweeted the VMAs. “We love Lorde and can hardly wait for her to appear on the VMA stage in the future!”

Lordes Solar Power arrived last month. Your video for the title track has been nominated for best camera by the VMAs. The visual was shot by Andrew Stroud, who also worked on the clip for Mood Ring. Pitchfork emailed Lorde’s agents for more information about the cancellation of the VMAs.
