When Emely Paula went to work on May 29th, she was anticipating having just another day at her new job at Liquiteria. She’s a cashier at the smoothie joint but the gig is still rather new to her. Working in NYC, she’s bound to have some celebrities in and out of the store – but until Monday, she’d not yet seen anyone famous come in.
That changed when Lorde walked into the store on Memorial Day and ordered a ‘blue velvet’. Emely posted a short video clip on Twitter saying she was ‘shook’ and that Lorde was the first celeb she got to serve a smoothie to, she was clearly a big fan. She tagged Lorde in the video and probably thought that would be the last of it.
That is until she got a DM on Twitter that afternoon.
On Tuesday morning, Emely posted another Tweet that simply read ‘Woke up trying to figure out if last night was a dream or real life…’
In addition to the text, she posted three pictures. Two were of herself making a face that showed she was, in fact, trying to figure out if the events of the night before had really happened, and after reading the third picture she posted, it’s easy to see why.
That video Emely tweeted of Lorde in her store, wasn’t the end of that interaction at all. In fact, it was just the beginning. Lorde sent Emely a message on Twitter and it is easily one of the coolest things that we’ve ever seen.
Alongside congratulating Emely for the new job, Lorde asked her if she’d like to come to The Governers Ball Music Festival – on her. Now, for those of you who don’t know – that music festival is INCREDIBLE and the lineup this year is amazing. So even if you just buy a general admission pass and check it out, you’re going to have the time of your life.
However, Emely is going to be experiencing the whole thing thanks to Lorde and that in itself is something no one else can say. We anticipate seeing a lot of activity on her Twitter account this weekend, and we’re excited for her. We’re also bigger fans of Lorde after that interaction too, what she did provides Emely with a once in a lifetime opportunity.
