Lorde Responds To Lesbian Joke About Her And Taylor Swift
While doing press for her Australian tour, Lorde shut down a radio host over a lesbian joke.
The radio host was trying to insinuate that Lorde had a lesbian relationship with Taylor Swift.
Lorde wants to make it clear that she doesn’t like people joking about the LGBT community. She called into Australia’s The Kyle and Jackie O show to talk about her upcoming tour there.
The radio host, Kyle Sandilands, asked about Lorde’s new friendship with Taylor Swift,
“I see your guys’ pictures everywhere. Are you guys like, uh, are you together now? Not together as in lesbians. I’m not talking about ‘Ellen together.’”
Lorde’s didn’t appreciate the comment and shot back,
“What do you mean you’re not talking about ‘Ellen together’? Is there something wrong with lesbians? Is that what you’re trying to say?”
When Sandilands tried to get her to confirm a lesbian relationship with Swift, she promptly replied,
“Don’t even try it. It’s not working.”
