"I am SO sorry everyone this was a deeply poorly chosen quote about my love of bathing", she commented.

Lorde might have forgotten how Whitney Houston died when she shared a photo of her bathtub on Instagram along with a very iconic lyrics of the late American singer.

The 21-year-old New Zealand-born singer took to her social media account on Thursday, April 5 to share the picture of the bathtub filled with water. She was found in a bathtub and according to the autopsy report died from drowning, cocaine and atherosclerotic heart disease.

Her daughter with singer Bobbi Brown, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was also discovered unconscious in a bathtub in January 2015 before dying at the age of 22 six months later.

The post was swiftly deleted upon her exit from said tub but not before a tsunami of commenters screeched in one collective, horrified voice.

The film will be released in cinemas on 6 July 2018.

This isn't the first time Lorde has inadvertently put her foot in her mouth. Lorde was just trying to celebrate her day off with a relaxing bath when she made one of the most cringe-worthy errors we've ever seen.

Of course many took to social media to express their outrage at Lorde's reference mishap. Most fans seem to think that Lorde's apology was honest and that she really was just excited about taking a bath. Such a post was truly disgusting.

Lorde is now in the midst of her Melodrama World Tour and is expected to perform at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, tomorrow night.
