Earlier this week, Australian radio host Kyle Sandilands didn’t resist asking Lorde during an interview if she and her new ‘bestie’ Taylor Swift were “dating.” Considering Swift’s track record of publicly failed relationships, perhaps this wasn’t the most absurd and left field question we could expect.
“Are you bringing your new bestie, Taylor Swift?” Sandilands asked. “I see your guys’ pictures everywhere. Are you guys like, uh, are you together now?” After a pause, he continued.
“Not together as in lesbians. I’m not talking about ‘Ellen’ together.’ I’m talking about, like, you guys are friendly right?”
“What do you mean you’re not talking about ‘Ellen together’?” she asked. “Is there something wrong with lesbians?Is that what you’re trying to say?” the “Royals” star fired back.
“Oh my god, no, I would love that,” he added. “Are you gonna confirm now you’re in a lesbian relationship with her?”
“Don’t even try it,” Lorde said. “It’s not working.”
Lorde sounded unamused and seemingly annoyed with the Australian radio host. Nonetheless, there was no confirming or denying whether or not she and Swift have developed an intimate relationship.
One thing’s for sure–Lorde is not for the gossip game!
