Lorde called into an Australian radio show yesterday and laid into a female host for asking some questions about her and Taylor Swift. The DJ asked "Are you bringing your new bestie, Taylor Swift,". "I see your guys' pictures everywhere." She went on to ask Lorde if she and Taylor were "together" and, after an awkward pause, tried to backpedal saying "Not together as in lesbians... I'm not talking about 'Ellen' together."
The remark seemed to set Lorde off. She retorted, "Is there something wrong with lesbians? Is that what you're saying?" The interviewer immediately backed off, attempting to laugh off the incident, but changed topics quickly after getting more short and snappy responses.
