Lorde Talks Friend Taylor Swift: "Is There Something Wrong With Lesbians?"
Not that there's anything wrong with that!
New Zealander Lorde got into a bit of a tiff on Monday, March 10 with radio host Kyle Sandilands of KIIS FM, who sidetracked discussing her Australian tour in favor of her blossoming friendship with singer-songwriter Taylor Swift.
"I see you guys’ pictures everywhere are you guys together now?" Sandilands asked (via the Daily Mail), later clarifying, "Not together as in lesbians, I’m not talking about 'Ellen together' I’m talking about, like you guys are friendly right?"
But rather than acting offended by the radio host's initial implications, the "Royals" singer, 17, seemed more upset that he threw out the phrase "Ellen together."
"What do you mean you’re not talking about 'Ellen together,' is there something wrong with lesbians?" she asked.
"Oh my god no, I would love that!" he exclaimed. "Are you going to confirm now you’re in a lesbian relationship with her?"
"Don’t even try it," the Grammy winner calmly replied.
The shock jock continued to pester Lorde about her friendship with the "Red" singer, 24, but the breakout star remained relatively tight-lipped and understandably irritated by the entire conversation.
"I do love her though, we get along well with her. She’s very down to earth, right?" Sandilands asked.
After an awkward pause, the "Royals" crooner replied, "Uh… yeah."
The radio host then sarcastically commented, "Don’t go too overboard explaining the friendship then."
Seemingly annoyed, Lorde responded, "I won’t, believe me."
The dynamic duo were last spotted together, dancing in the streets of New York City on Sunday, March 9. And in February 2014, Lorde visited Swift in California where they were spotted frolicking on the beach in Malibu and going on a shopping spree in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Brentwood.
Lorde has been dating 24-year-old photographer James Lowe since December 2013, and though she's currently single, Swift's high-profile flames have been countlessly chronicled in her many chart-topping songs.
