Is Lorde a secret onion ring fan?

Onion rings are delicious so it shouldn’t be a secret, but a report from a New Zealand news site claims the singer has an Instagram devoted to onion ring reviews.

Newshub was tipped off by a 17-year-old fan and sent questions to Lorde to confirm it was her. The account was deleted, but @onionringsworldwide allegedly only has 24 followers, and one of them is Lorde. It also had only four photos of poorly lit onion rings.

Newshub went deep, tracing one onion ring to Lorde’s recent appearance at Bonnaroo and doing forensic work on her fingers. The reviewer also gives the gas face to Burger King onion rings, describing it as having a “mulched onion filling with a distinct bitterness.”

Perhaps more clues to this greasy puzzle will be provided by Lorde’s new album, Melodrama, which comes out on Friday.
