  1. Heartbreaking Clown Earns Internet Fame for Cover of Lorde Hit

    A 7-foot singing clown has stolen Lorde’s thunder. Puddles, the sad clown with the golden voice, was already well-known in his native Atlanta, but thanks to his cover of the soulful teenager’s song “Royals,” he’s now a YouTube icon. Although journalists are dying to learn more about Puddles, the clown refuses to speak. At all. His “associate” Mike Geier says there’s no reason to talk about Puddles anyway because it’s like trying to describe the sunset — “just watch the sunset.”
