All Jorji Kellogg wanted for Christmas were two tickets to see Lorde live in concert.@JorjiIsAwesome/Twitter
But the Missouri teen’s parents had a different idea of what their daughter meant by asking to see Lorde perform.
As the Daily Mail reports, Kellogg tweeted a picture of the gift she received on Christmas day in hopes of opening two tickets to see the New Zealand-born singer.lordemusic/Instagram
Instead, the teen was gifted a chance to see megachurch pastor Joel Osteen perform “A Night with Our Lord and Savior” at the Sprint Center in Kansas City.JoelOsteen/Instagram
Kellogg captioned the photo: “I asked for Lorde tickets. Not The Lord.”@JorjiIsAwesome/Twitter
Included with the ticket was a card from Kellogg’s proud parents:@JorjiIsAwesome/Twitter
The note read:
Dad and I are so proud and happy that you want to grow your faith and spend time with the Lord! Enjoy Pastor Joel Osteen at the Spirit Center!
Love, Dad and Ma
Twitter loved the fast one Kellogg’s parents pulled on their daughter:
Your parents are cool! This will be a story you’ll tell your kids one day. ?

This is about as great as the the girl who got tickets to the red hot chilli pipers instead of the red hot chili peppers

Kellogg later added her parents came clean about the prank and ultimately pulled through with tickets so their daughter could see her favorite performer.
