It was all just speculation at first, with fans doing their job by tracking where she would have been during what time she posted each shot... and they all started to add up. Especially when they compared her fingernails to the ONE shot of someone's hand in the onion ring Instagram.
Honestly, fans are better detectives than detectives are.
Now, while appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Lorde confessed!
How did it all start then? Well, with her friends. “It started as a funny thing to do with my friends while on tour and I was like, this is a fun pastime,” she revealed.
Unfortunately, as people found out it was her, she deleted the account.
The singer admitted, “I just felt like everyone knows about it now and I didn’t want it to be seen as something I’m doing to crave fame.
“Then people were going to be throwing onion rings at me while on tour,” she continued to say.
Watch the interview below, and strangely, crave some onion rings:
