Lorde Shuts Radio DJ Down After Taylor Swift Lesbian Relationship Joke
Lorde didn’t mince words earlier today (March 10) when an Australian DJ joked that she’s more than just friends with fellow musical sensation Taylor Swift. Here’s the situation: Lorde called in to The Kyle & Jackie Show, a popular Down Under radio program.
One of the hosts, the Kyle one, asked the Kiwi if she was bringing her “new bestie” to her upcoming New York City concert. “I see your guys’s pictures everywhere. Are you guys, like, uh, are you together now?”
In the awkward silence that followed, Kyle tried to clear up what he meant only to end up digging himself a deeper hole. “Not together as in lesbians…I’m not talking about ‘Ellen together,’” he said, referring to famous funny lady Ellen DeGeneres and the very lucky wife of Portia de Rossi. “I’m talking about, like, you guys are friendly, right?" he added of TayTay.
Then Lorde called Kyle out on what exactly he’s talking about. “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?” she replied.
When he tried to spin the joke, asking her if she’s going to “confirm now that you’re in a lesbian relationship with her,” Lorde proceeded to shut him down even more. “Don’t ever try it,” she said. “It’s not working.”
