Lorde's face right now. 

For some celebrities, getting recognized everywhere is one of the biggest downsides of being famous. But it sounds like not getting recognized is almost just as bad. 

Lorde recalled a hilarious encounter with an excited Uber driver on Tuesday, who told her he’d just driven someone famous before he picked her up. Get it? Because Lorde’s a celebrity. 

The singer shared her unfortunate experience in a few funny tweets: 

She even composed a little fan-fiction about the sad, wistful driver and their ride. 

Ellie Goulding then chimed in with a great story of her own, telling Lorde about an Uber driver who didn’t recognize her, either, and then insulted her. 

We guess they’ll never be royals recognized by some people.
