Lorde is a teenage girl from New Zealand and one of the most popular musicians of the day, working with SMP Boss to get out such hits as Hunger Games, Ya ya ya. She's known for her honesty, intelligence, and grace... well, until that time she rubbed her clit on television and disappointed millions of fans across the nation. Diabetes is an important issue for her, and she notably performed at the Broflovski Residence for a party in diabetic Scott Malkinson's honor. The womens' bathroom at the U. S. Geological Survey is important to her music and identity, and when it was taken away from her, even though she was offered her own bathroom, she went dark on Twitter for a week -- before releasing her biggest hit to date, PUSH. Reporter Brandon Carlile was hoping to do a big story on her but had to let it go for undisclosed reasons. One of her biggest fans was Shelly Marsh and it's known SPCPD Officer Stevens has a crush on her. Her current status is unknown.
There are those who might claim that Lorde is actually a forty-five year old fluvial geomorphologist from Colorado named Randy Marsh, who wanted to escape Hanson's toilet messes, but they are unsubstantiated.

- The real-life Lorde was a big fan of the episode: "i don't actually watch south park but from what i can tell sia was involved and someone's mum said something really nice about me.. score!" and posted clips and commentary to her Instagram later.
- In contrast to Erica Cartman, Janet Garrison and Wendyl Testaburger, though flawed, Lorde is the most sympathetic and accurate portrayal of a trans person in South Park to date.
