On Thursday night, after wrapping a show in Brooklyn, New York, Lorde posted a photo of a bath and captioned it "And iii will always love you." While she meant she loves taking baths, her followers thought the reference was in poor taste, considering Whitney, who performed "I Will Always Love You," was found dead in a bathtub at the Beverly Hills Hotel in 2012.
