's making plenty of friends in Boston.
The 17-year-old singer-songwriter, who was in Massachusetts to perform a Friday night concert at the Orpheum Theatre, headed to the New England Aquarium earlier in the day where she had a rendezvous
with Kit the fur seal pup, who was born last summer.
Dressed in a black knit Boston Bruins hat, shorts and a green military-style coat, Lorde got up close and personal with several animals during her visit, which included a tour of the facility.
She fed penguins some lettuce during a live presentation and took snapshots of the jellyfish in their tank.
"Jellies at the New England Aquarium, where we took a tour this morning – staff are lovely/knowledgeable and all the sea life looks really well cared for," she wrote on Instagram
Despite having fun with the penguins and seals, it looks like the frosty weather in Massachusetts wasn't quite to Lorde's liking.
"This is the coldest place I have ever [been]," she wrote in a text that she shared on Instagram
