The #FreeLorde Hashtag Has Fans Worried for the "Royals" Singer

By

It appears that New Zealand-born pop singer Lorde may be involved in a bit of Melodrama right now.

On Monday, Oct. 7, a hashtag that simply read #FreeLorde went viral on Twitter. And as you can probably imagine, fans of the 22-year old "Tennis Courts" singer immediately began to panic. 

So, what happened? Was Lorde arrested? Here's everything you need to know.

Those who have loved Lorde from the very beginning know the singer, songwriter, and notorious onion ring fanatic began her career at the young age of 16, when she released her very first studio album called "Pure Heroine." 

The album gained a tremendous amount of popularity shortly after its release, according to The Spinoff. So, Lorde got the Green Light to abandon her 13th year at Takapuna Grammar, to further pursue her budding music career.
