Inspiring Drinks & Onion Rings: Lady Gaga & Lorde’s Delicious Side Projects
Lady Gaga and Lorde don’t only deliver delightful bops that sate our musical cravings. Both of them have also been working on delectable side projects. Let’s start with Lady Gaga. Earlier this year she revealed a tendency to fry bacon while topless and now the Joanne songstress announces a partnership between her Born This Way Foundation and Starbucks. They’ve collaborated on the Cups of Kindness collection — a line of colorful drinks that promote unity.
The collection features two new drinks, a “Matcha Lemonade” and a “Violet Drink.” In a press release, Gaga revealed that the lemonade is her favorite beverage. “We’re healthier and happier when we live our lives with compassion and our communities are stronger when we treat one another with generosity and respect,” Mother Monster preached. 25 cents from each sale will be donated to the pop star’s foundation to help create an environment that fosters positivity. Such generosity.
Meanwhile a New Zealand website is speculating that Lorde runs an Instagram account dedicated to onion rings. The account, aptly titled @OnionRingsWorldwide, vowed to rate every onion ring the account owner’s mouth ever encountered. Lorde was one of 24 Instagram users to follow the account, and the publication cited several other pieces of evidence that implied she was secretly running it. If she was, Lorde is one tough critic. None of the four onion rings rated received a perfect score.
Unfortunately for those looking for the one onion ring to rule them all, the account has been deactivated and Lorde’s management is remaining mum on whether she ran the page for its brief tenure. Guess they’d rather focus on the release of her upcoming LP Melodrama, but that seems rather boring in comparison to discussion of crispy, fried deliciousness. The New Zealand hitmaker unleashed the album’s final promo single, the fan favorite “Sober,” last week, and the album follows this Friday (June 16). Here’s to hoping that it contains tracks as tasty as the onion rings she has reviewed.
