Turns out Lorde was behind the onion ring Instagram account, after all!

During a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Lorde confirmed the rampant theory that she was running a secret Instagram account that rated different establishments and their onion rings.

“I have to explain for a second. Here’s the thing: I sort of naively didn’t realize it would be ‘a thing’ that I was going to different places and trying the onion rings at each of those places,” Lorde told Jimmy Fallon about her rumored onion-ring critic past.

In case you missed it, earlier this week Newshub uncovered the Instagram account @onionringsworldwide and speculated that the singer was the one running it. Despite the fact that it’s since been deleted, Fallon brought it up and Lorde eventually copped to her onion-ring loving side gig.

“It’s me. It’s me,” she finally admitted. “I feel like it reads like the kind of thing a pop star would do to look relatable. Which I wasn’t doing. It was a funny thing with my friends on the tour. I was like, ‘This is a good past time.’”

The “Green Light” singer then explained that although she deleted the account, she will never stop eating onion rings.

“I’m still going to keep eating onion rings because they’re my favorite,” she said.

If you too love a good onion ring, you should listen to Lorde’s tips for the perfect, crispy treat.

“A batter works better than a crumb. It’s a bit lighter,” she told Fallon. “The other thing you can do to make an onion ring magical is lightly pickle the onion before you batter it up.”

Who knew Lorde was such an onion ring expert?
