Lorde puts Kyle Sandilands in place over lesbian question

TEENAGE pop star Lorde and her new bestie Taylor Swift were snapped together again in New York on Sunday and have hinted a musical collaboration is in the works.

But the way an Australian radio host questioned the pair's relationship was slammed by the 17-year-old Kiwi.

Kyle Sandilands interviewed the Royals singer on his KIIS FM show on Monday about her upcoming Australian tour.

But Lorde, who is in a relationship with photographer James Lowe, was quick to stand up to the 42-year-old shock jock.

She wouldn't stand for his crude line of questioning when he pressed her for details of her relationship with 24-year-old Swift, trying to imply the pair were dating.

"I see you guys' pictures 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?" Sandilands asked the young Kiwi.

However, Lorde hit back: "What do you mean you're not talking about 'Ellen together', is there something wrong with lesbians?"

He continued to grill her on the growing friendship between the two Grammy winners, asking: "Are you going to confirm now you're in a lesbian relationship with her?"

But Lorde was having none of it, warning the presenter: "Don't even try it".

The young pop star, whose US tour is currently receiving rave reviews, has maturity beyond her years.

On her decision to turn down an offer to be Katy Perry's support act, Lorde said in the interview: "I think in the really early stages of any artist's career it's important for them to establish themselves for themselves.

"I'm just basically really stubborn and I want to be really independent and so I wanted to be headlining my own shows as opposed to supporting someone else."

Lorde will tour Australia in April and May, and yesterday M.A.C Cosmetics announced they are collaborating with her on a limited product collection out June 5. World's her oyster.
