Lorde is still relatively new to the media’s spotlight, so we don’t exactly know what the “Royals” singer is like and what exactly makes her tick.
However, during a recent radio interview, the singer definitely didn’t back down to the nosey and rather rude interviewer.
On Monday, March 10, Lorde sat down with radio host Kyle Sandilands of KIIS FM. While there to discuss her Australian tour, Sandilands got a little sidetracked over her blossoming relationship with fellow-musician Taylor Swift.
“I see you guys’ pictures everywhere are you guys together now?” Sandilands asked. “Not together as in lesbians, I’m not talking about ‘Ellen together’ I’m talking about, like you guys are friendly right?”
Instead of fueling the radio host’s desire to know the intimate details of the girl’s friendship, the 17-year-old seemed more bothered by his phrase selection of “Ellen together.”
“What do you mean you’re not talking about ‘Ellen together,’ is there something wrong with lesbians?” she curiously asked.
Taking a moment to reply, the radio host said,”Oh my god no, I would love that!”
Obviously trying to create a story out of nothing, the host added, “Are you going to confirm now you’re in a lesbian relationship with her?”
Clearly beyond her years, Lorde replied with a smug, “Don’t even try it.”
“I do love her though, we get along well with her. She’s very down to earth, right?” Sandilands continued to ask, seemingly trying to diffuse the conversation from getting worse.
“Uh… yeah,” Lorde said, remaining short.
The radio host then sarcastically commented, “Don’t go too overboard explaining the friendship then.”
That prompted Lorde to say, “I won’t, believe me.”
While Lorde is only 17, it’s clear she doesn’t stand for any b.s. And that’s what we love about you, Lorde!
