Lorde does not mess around when it comes to her pal Taylor Swift .
The "Royals" singer was interviewed on The Kyle & Jackie Show on Australia's KIIS 1065 radio station today and got defensive when asked about her growing friendship with the country crooner.
The shock jock did his best to crack a joke (albeit a really bad one) about the fact that the two stars have been inseparable lately—and Lorde just wasn't having it.
"Are you bringing your new bestie, Taylor Swift?" Kyle Sandilands asked about her upcoming New York City concert.
"I see your guys' pictures everywhere. Are you guys, like, uh, are you together now?"
There was an awkward pause before Sandilands continued, "Not together as in lesbians…I'm not talking about 'Ellen together.' I'm talking about, like, you guys are friendly, right?"
Lorde retorted, "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?"
Sandilands explained, "Oh my god, no, I would love that. Are you going to confirm now that you're in a lesbian relationship with her?"
"Don't ever try it. It's not working," Lorde said.
And after trying to salvage the situation, Sandilands went on to gush about T.Swift, saying that she's a "gorgeous creature" and "no wonder you guys get on."
Sensing Lorde's irritation, Sandilands sarcastically joked, "Don't get too overboard with explaining the friendship, though. We haven't got all day."
"I won't, believe me," she told the radio show host.
