We bet the drivers are raging now.

Lorde and Ellie Goulding both went unnoticed by their Uber drivers… while they raved about other celebrity passengers.

Lorde took to Twitter on Tuesday night to talk about her journey with an excited Uber driver, who was totally oblivious to who was in his back seat.

“Uber driver currently busting a nut about the fact that there was a ‘celebrity passenger’ just before me,” she wrote.

“I can tell our ride, by comparison, sparkles significantly less for him.”

The Grammy Award winner took the opportunity to put a few lines about her taxi ride together, saying:

“I can feel it from the back seat, his dazed glow. He’s probably now pretending that I am not here, that they are still together, and alone.”

Pop superstar Ellie Goulding then joined in, and replied to Lorde’s tweet saying that her driver told her he didn’t like her music, without realising it was her.

“Mine said he had someone from Ellie Goulding’s band in earlier. But didn’t like her music soooo.”

“I just winced,” replied Lorde.

Talk about awkward.
