Lorde's spokesperson has dismissed claims about her 'bizarre requests' at a Las Vegas gig.

The 17-year-old pop sensation took the stage at Cosmopolitan's Boulevard Pool Sin City on Tuesday.

The performance was soon subject to speculation she demanded the venue not sell beer cans, among other requests.

However, a spokesperson for the star has brushed off the claims.

'This is not true at all but thank you for checking,' her representative told PageSix.

Lorde did have plenty of fans in the crowd, however, including former Kansas City Royals baseball player George Brett, the inspiration for her chart-topping track Royals.

The New Zealand singer recently revealed it was a National Geographic photo of Brett wearing his 1976 jersey that helped her dream up the tune.

She said at the time she had no clue who he was, but admitted she was captivated by the image and the name of his team.

'His shirt said 'Royals.' It was just that word. It's really cool,' she told VH1 back in September.

PageSix reports Brett 'was very casual watched the show with a small group from a VIP cabana' before the pair posed for pictures backstage.

Lorde meanwhile has been enjoying her 'wild' life in the wake of her sudden super-stardom following the release of her debut album Pure Heroine, which won her two Grammy Awards this year.

The jet-setting star recently spoke to Teen Vogue about how grateful she is to be pursuing her love of music professionally, and insists she doesn't take it for granted.

'Living in New Zealand, you don't get these experiences. I spent so much time in my room before,' she explained in the May 2014 issue.

'My life is so wild right now. For me to be able to do something I really enjoy and for that to get me out in the world - to South America, to here, to London - every day I kick myself, I'm so lucky,' she said.
