Lorde Rips Australian Radio Host for Taylor Swift Lesbian Joke


An Australian radio host got an earful from Lorde after joking about rumors that she and Taylor Swift are involved in a lesbian relationship, E! reports.

Said Kyle Sandilands of KIIS 1065's Kyle & Jackie Show:

"Are you bringing your new bestie, 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.' I'm talking about, like, you guys are friendly, right?"

Lorde wasn't having it:

Lorde retorted, "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?"

Sandilands explained, "Oh my god, no, I would love that. Are you going to confirm now that you're in a lesbian relationship with her?"

"Don't ever try it. It's not working," Lorde said.

  4. Good for her, I'm glad Lorde has the decency to call people out on this sort of stuff.

  5. Besides, if she were a lesbian, Lorde could do a lot better than Taylor Swift!

  6. @STYLER -- I did a bit of research and that doesn't seem to be the case. She co-wrote the song Royals with Joe Little, who also produced every track on the album. I've not read anywhere that her mother writes her music. Could you please provide the source for your allegation? Thanks!

  9. Some people are much too sensitive and can't take jokes. She needs to take that pole out of her ass.

    Don't defend me Lorde. I've got it covered.

  11. Perry: First of all she is a minor, if the old fart want to imagine some lesbian action he can go to watch porn

  14. On his radio show a few years ago, Kyle Sandilands strapped a 14 year old girl to a lie-detector and asked her whether she had ever had sex. When she replied that she had been raped as a 12 year old, he said, "Right ... is that the only experience you’ve had?" Kyle Sandilands is scum and people should just refuse to appear on his show.
