Does Lorde Secretly Review Onion Rings?

There is some compelling evidence out there at the moment suggesting Lorde might spend her spare time reviewing onion rings on Instagram. That's right, those — hopefully — thick-cut, fried root vegetable delights that have been satisfying both pub fare and fast food lovers for years, have the New Zealand songstress in such a trance that she simply can't avoid writing about them — or at least that's what the internet is insinuating — and who could blame her?
Here's what we know:
Recently there was an Instagram account known as @onionringsworldwide, which had a staggering 24 followers, many of which were associated with Lorde in one way or another. It did what any account named @onionringsworldwide, took pictures of onion rings around the world, and shared its thoughts on the crunch, chewy treats.
Anyways, a New Zealand website, let's call it Newshub, contacted Lorde's management to find out if the Instagram was hers. Here's where things get a bit odd, instead of simply denying it or copping to it, the Instagram was mysteriously taken down over night.
Now this could have been the end of the whole thing, but the good people over at Newshub would not let it be swept under the rug so easily. The news site started looking closer and noticed that these photos and reviews of onion rings were happening very close to where Lorde could have been when the review was made.
One more point Newshub makes is that the fingers of the individual holding the onion rings looks very much like Lorde. Is it really Lorde who has been reviewing these onion rings? Or does she have a thumb clone somewhere out there? Take a look and decide for yourself.
Lorde's sophomore album Melodrama comes out this Friday, June 16th.
