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.
