The rumors are true!
Lorde, who is currently promoting her sophomore album Melodrama, revealed on Thursday night’s Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon that she is the mastermind behind an Instagram account dedicated to reviewing onion rings.
The now-deleted @onionringsworldwide account was discovered earlier this week by a New Zealand news site which, after some serious sleuthing, was convinced it was Lorde herself running the page. The account had 24 followers, consisting of Lorde's band members.
The “Royals” singer also opened up to Fallon about her struggle with fame, and why she took three years off and moved back to New Zealand.
“I just really felt like the whole thing was not really for me when I didn’t have to do it,” she explained. “I’ll do it when I have to do it, and when I don't have to I’m just gonna peace out and go 10 thousand miles away.”
As for her onion ring obsession, the pop star says that won’t be stopping anytime soon.
“I’m still gonna keep eating onion rings because they’re my favorite,” she admitted. “I think they’re underrated as well. I don’t think they get enough credit for how delicious they are.”
