Howard Stern: Singer Lorde a 'S***head' for Cancelling Israel Show

Stern and his co-hosts labeled Lorde a one-hit wonder, pointing out that she has no issue playing shows in Russian Federation despite their influence on the US election and their role "planting all kinds of problems around the world, all kinds of terrorism".

Stern labelled the Kiwi singer a "s.head" and a one-hit-wonder in a foul-mouthed tirade earlier this month on his U.S. radio show.

The 21-year-old Kiwi singer last month announced she would be canceling a planned show in Tel Aviv because of an "overwhelming" number of messages from fans asking her not to play.

Earlier in the month, supporters of the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement had encouraged her to boycott the country to signal her disapproval of its government's policies oppressing Palestinians.

Stern, a Jewish radio host and media personality with links to the US Libertarian Party, took exception to her decision. The latest to speak out against the pop star is Howard Stern, who did not mince words during a January 3 segment on his radio show.

"F.k her. Royals. One f.ing hit song this girl is living off". I don't even know.

"It's like when Lorde suddenly figures out her political view-point, it's like the Kardashians, maybe we should consult them on North Korea", he said. What's the one thing about Israel that's different than all other places?

Stern said he hopes Lorde "has a good time in Russia", then claimed she only had one hit song.

"I don't know how she's doing a concert. You know, there's Jews there".

Stern also has dumped on Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters for his vocal criticism of Israel and effort to get various artists to cancel concerts there.

Comedian Roseanne Barr described the Kiwi singer a "bigot" for her decision, while high-profile rabbi Shmuley Boteach took out a full-page ad in Washington Post criticising the cancellation.
