Music star Lorde did not take kindly to comments made about her friendship with Taylor Swift by a radio host, who joked that the pair might be lesbians.

The Royals singer spoke in an interview to Australian radio DJ Kyle Sandilands, of KIIS FM, during which he made a comment about the fact that Lorde and Taylor Swift had been spotted together recently.

“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 17-year-old.

She was quick to respond, saying: “What do you mean you’re not talking about ‘Ellen together’, is there something wrong with lesbians?”

Despite her reaction to his questions, the radio DJ went on to ask: “Are you going to confirm now you’re in a lesbian relationship with her?”

Lorde simply responded: “Don’t even try it.”
