MN Native’s YouTube Lorde Parody Takes Off

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A comedian from Minnesota is having a little fun at the expense of one of the biggest songs on the radio, Lorde’s “Royals.”

Molly Dworsky is a Hopkins native trying to make it big in comedy in Los Angeles. In her new parody video, she sings about not having accomplished much at 26 compared to Lorde, who is still a teenager.

She said the whole thing came together by chance.

“One of my customers told me that I looked like Lorde, like right away, right when the song came out,” she said. “I had heard it a few times and didn’t know who she was, and I went home and looked her up and listened to her song a few times and, upon further research, found out she’s only 17, and then went into a horrible depression about how I’ve done nothing with my life.”

She said this is the first major video project she’s done, and she’s excited to see it get more than 67,000 views now on YouTube.

For now, she’s happy with her first success, even though she says all of the attention is making her feel nauseated.

She did write another song –- a rap about living in Minnesota. She says now, she might come back home to put it together.
