South Park reveals Lorde isn't who you think she is

Posted on

Comedy Central

Lorde fans: You’ve been living a lie. Oh, you thought you were smitten with a darling 17-year-old pop star from New Zealand? Nope. As South Park revealed last night, you’ve been deceived by a middle-aged Colorado man—Stan Marsh’s dad, Randy, to be exact.

The show explains that Randy created Lorde as an alter ego so he could use women’s bathrooms. To make his masquerade more believable, Randy wrote songs and Auto-Tuned his vocals to obscure his voice.

Read the EW Community’s recap, watch the scene below, and—if Lorde’s true identity hasn’t deterred you—listen to the pop singer’s new single.
