Turns out that Lorde is as scared of snakes as the rest of us.
She went over to Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's house for a BBQ with US comedian Stephen Colbert's The Late Show. He tried to pull his classic "snake-in-a-can" prank on Jacinda - but in the end it was Lorde who took the bait.
Stephen Colbert visited New Zealand back in October - after Jacinda invited him over and even promised to personally pick him up from the airport. His adventures are being featured on The Late Show as part of "New Zealand Week'.
