We Are Here for the Lorde Onion Ring Conspiracy Theory

There is a theory from NewsHub in New Zealand that the recently shuttered @onionringsworldwide Instagram account was run by none other than witch icon Lorde, and you know what? Yes. This is the reality we are now choosing to believe in, get on board or get out.

NewsHub has a lot of evidence to back up the claim that Lorde is a secret onion ring connoisseur. A pic of onion rings enjoyed "on a plane from Tennessee to New York" was shared right after Lorde left Bonnaroo. Lorde and many of her friends were some of the account's only 24 followers. One of the hands holding an onion ring had super short nails, just like Lorde. And the account also spelled it "flavour" like someone from New Zealand.

Perhaps the most damning evidence is that as soon as NewsHub contacted Lorde's team about the account, it was ~mysteriously deleted~.

We are true believers now, and are looking for evidence anywhere we can find it. Here's a photo Lorde shared on Twitter of her going to a Sonic, which serves onion rings.

Here's her eating small bagels, which are the same shape as onion rings.

Here's an Instagram of her enjoying a post-show cheeseburger, which traditionally can be accompanied by onion rings.

Like, honestly, do you need more evidence?
