You might remember that, earlier this week, an Instagram account surfaced featuring onion ring reviews by someone who may or may not have been Lorde. Well on Thursday night, Lorde herself went on Jimmy Fallon and CONFESSED to running the account.
“Okay, I have to explain for a second,” she says. “I sort of naively didn’t realize it would be a thing. I was going to different places and trying the onion rings at each of those places!”
Lorde says she shut down the account because she didn’t want it to be a big thing and that maybe fans would throw onion rings at her on tour. But in the process of reviewing rings—which she says are underrated—she learned she likes a “batter better than a crumb.” And lightly pickling the onion doesn’t hurt as well.
“I feel like it kind of reads like the kind of thing a popstar would do to look relatable which I wasn’t doing! It was a funny thing with my friends on the tour and I was like, this is a good pastime.”
