Pop Star Lorde Reveals Secret Onion Ring Instagram Account to Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon
NEW YORK, NY - It turns out even the rich and famous share an undying love of deep fried produce with us common folk, this time evidenced by a pop star’s secret social media account dedicated to the complex task of onion ring reviewing. In a new segment on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon featuring singer-songwriter Lorde, the host used his sharp interviewing skills to coax the singer into revealing her true identity—curator of the @OnionRingsWorldwide Instagram account.
“I was going to different places and trying the onions rings,” Lorde sheepishly explained upon realizing she had been revealed as the secret onion ring purveyor. “I don’t think they get enough credit for how delicious they are.”
The @OnionRingsWorldwide was discovered to likely be Lorde following an in-depth investigation by New Zealand-based News Hub. From tracking the star’s travel locations to analyzing the length of her fingernails, the internet was abuzz about proving Lorde’s ties to the clandestine account.
So, after all that hard-hitting investigative work, what exactly are this Lorde of the Rings’ criteria for what makes the most delicious fried onion out there?
“For my sort of semi-professional ventures, I think that a batter works better than a crumb,” she told Jimmy Fallon, asserting her expertise on the topic. “Another thing you can do to really make an onion ring magical is to lightly pickle the onion before you batter it up. It takes on this acidity and it's incredible.”
