Lorde made her debut on the popular spicy chicken wing-eating YouTube series “Hot Ones” this week and fans could not believe how calm she was in the face of serious heat.
The pop star talked candidly to host Sean Evans about her upcoming album “Solar Power,” and the various components that went into creating it (including ― cicadas??). She also talked about fame, life on tour, her onion ring Instagram account and her recent trip to Antarctica.
But Evans seemed most shocked at Lorde’s remarkable composure while eating incredibly spicy chicken wings as they talked about the various topics during the more than 24-minute show.
Upon eating the wing doused in a sauce called Scorpion Disco, made with “one of the hottest [peppers] on earth” as per Heatonist, Lorde simply said: “That’s nice … I like it.”
Viewers were also in awe of her ability to “casually” enjoy super hot wings, and couldn’t help but remark on Twitter:
i actually can’t get over Lorde going on hot wings and adding extra sauce, taking double bites, eating more wings at the end, and reading the hot sauce labels for the notes of flavour. i dont think she took a sip of the water. grown men have cried on that show.
