Lorde is among those being honored at Variety’s 2021 Power of Women: Los Angeles event later this month.

Other honorees include pop star Katy Perry, TV executive Channing Dungey, poet and activist Amanda Gorman and actress Rita Moreno.

The live outdoor event, in partnership with Lifetime, will celebrate each honoree’s philanthropic work. It will take place at the Wallis Annenberg Center on September 30.

The honorees will also be featured on the cover of Variety‘s “Power of Women” issue, out September 29.

Lorde, meanwhile, announced last week that she’ll no longer be performing at this weekend’s MTV Video Music Awards due to what the show is calling a “change in production elements.” Other VMA performers include Foo Fighters, Twenty One Pilots and Machine Gun Kelly.
