From Sports Illustrated's Extra Mustard:
In an interview a few months ago with VH1, Lorde (real name Ella Yelich-O’Connor) explained how she “had this image from the National Geographic of this dude just signing baseballs. He was a baseball player and his shirt said, ‘Royals.’” “It was just that word. It’s really cool.”
