Several months ago, Lorde told Fuse News she has a "low tolerance for stupid people." She wasn't kidding, and an Australian DJ recently learned that lesson the hard way during a recent interview with the "Royals" singer.
Asking Lorde about her burgeoning friendship with Taylor Swift, DJ Kyle Sandilands attempted to make a joke about the two being lesbians that was immediately, beautifully and mercilessly shot down by Lorde.
"I see your guys' pictures everywhere. Are you guys, like, uh, are you together now?" After a lengthy pause, the Australian DJ dug himself deeper. "Not together as in lesbians… I'm not talking about Ellen [DeGeneres] together. I'm talking about, like... you guys are friendly, right?"
"What do you mean you're not talking about 'Ellen together?'" Lorde bit back. "Is there something wrong with lesbians? Is that what you're trying to say?"
"Oh my god, no, I would love that," the DJ replied. And once again, he just had to push it further. "Are you going to confirm now that you're in a lesbian relationship with her?"
Her perfect reply: "Don't even try it. It's not working."
Moral of the story: If you are a fool, Lorde will not suffer you gladly. Or at all.
