Has Lorde Been Secretly Rating The World's Onion Rings on Instagram?

Has Lorde Been Secretly Rating The World's Onion Rings on Instagram?

Now, a Lorde superfan is convinced that they've found her secret Instagram account that's dedicated to onion rings!

Before the account was taken down (after Newshub sent a request for comment to Lorde's management), it had a grand total of 24 followers - Lorde was one of them.

Here's what we know about Lorde: She makes excellent music to weep by, her style is undeniable, and there's an 80 percent chance that she's a middle-aged dad from South Park named Randy Marsh (hey she admitted it herself).

Lorde would be someone who was too cool to know that Burger King sold onion rings, wouldn't she?

According to New York Magazine, some of the 'grams in question were also liked by Lorde's assistant and her makeup artist. The site also notes that many of those onion rings, which come from eating establishments around the world, come from places within driving distance from wherever Lorde was at the time, like a "charter plane from Tennessee to NY".

Newshub went deep, tracing one onion ring to Lorde's recent appearance at Bonnaroo and doing forensic work on her fingers.

This onion-ring-account operator could be based anywhere in the world, but two of the four posts are US-based.

Someone, allegedly Lorde, was running an Instagram account where onion rings of the world would be rated.

"The young detective told Newshub that "[Lorde's] fingernails look the same" as those shown on the mystery onion ring account.
