When two female celebrities hang out together more than once and there are pictures to prove it, does that mean they could possibly be more than friends? A (male) KISS FM radio DJ thinks so, as he asked 17-year-old pop singer Lorde about her recent hangtime with Taylor Swift (who, for the record, has a lot of female friends). Here’s how the convo went:
DJ: “I see you guys [in] 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?
Lorde: What do you mean you’re not talking about “Ellen together?” Is there something wrong with lesbians?
DJ: 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.
Lorde: 1, DJ: 0. She totally handled it in the best way possible: She challenged that douche, just like she’s taken on others in the past. Last year she told MTV:
“I was on the internet the other day, and I saw that someone had made up a quote about me not liking gay people, and I was like ‘Wha?!?’” she sighed. “Now there are probably a bunch of people out there who think I hate gay people now, which is ridiculous. But you have to let it go. I just want to continue making music; it’s the reason I’m here in the first place.”
