Lorde, Defender Of Homosexuals, Has Zero Tolerance For Lesbian Jokes

lorde-1024x930Grammy award-winning teenage prodigy Lorde has found a new bestie in singer/songwriter Taylor Swift — the two have been nearly inseparable for the last few months.

But let it be known that this is not the beginning of a superstar lesbian relationship! Swift may be a professional serial dater, but she’s certainly not playing for both teams (at least not in this case, according to Lorde).

The 17-year-old songstress appeared on Australia’s KIIS FM yesterday to talk about about her new tour Down Under with host Kyle Sandilands, and set the record straight, so to speak, in a response to some pretty offensive questions.

Sandilands asked “I see you guys pictured everywhere, are you guys 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 was not having any of it:

Lorde: “What do you mean you’re not talking about ‘Ellen together,’ is there something wrong with lesbians?”

Sandilands: “Oh my god no, I would love that! Are you going to confirm now you’re in a lesbian relationship with her?”

Lorde: “Don’t even try it.”

Sandilands: “I do love her though, we get along well with her. She’s very down to earth, right? Don’t go too overboard explaining the friendship then.”

Lorde: (agitated) “I won’t, believe me.”

And there you have it, folks! Lorde: Heterosexual, defender of Ellen, and fearless female with zero tolerance for bullshit.

      Sometimes it’s important to stop digging as Sandilands probably now knows.

      Even Howard Stern isn’t this much of a dickbag. Thats a really bad sign Mr. Sandilands.

      Let this be a warning to other Dick Jerks (isn’t that what DJ stands for in radio lingo?): Lorde can handle herself AND you. She’s a very cool young woman.

      The friendship between the 2 women is perfectly understandable. Who has the experience of blowing up worldwide as a 16/17 year old with all the stress and problems that come with that kind of fast fame? Probably no one out there other than Taylor Swift has lived through what Lorde is going through now and handled it with such equanimity and grace. Lorde should aspire to what Taylor has done (highest earning woman in music in 2013 by 2 to 1 margin over Beyonce) and the kind of genuine, down to earth young woman she has grown to become.

      Kiisfm broadcasts to Sydney metro, please don’t blame the rest of Australia for shock-jock Sandilands.

      It’s a common misconception overseas that Australia begins and ends just outside Sydney Harbour,
      whereas in fact Sydney only represents roughly 25% of Australia’s population. It was reported that at the current rates of growth Melbourne ( 4.3mil) will overtake Sydney (4.6mil) as the largest city by 2016.

      Many Australians view Sydney as crass, loud, money driven and self obsessed, the cities love of shock-jocks like Sandilands& Alan Jones only proves that stereotype.
