While it’s hardly uncommon when Kyle Sandilands finds himself in another controversial scenario, it’s less common when the notorious big-mouthed radio host is put in his place by a 17-year-old.
Lorde, everyone’s favourite teenage sensation, spoke to The Kyle & Jackie O Show yesterday about her upcoming Australian tour. Sandilands steered the conversation to Lorde’s personal life, when he brought up the musician’s friendship with American singer Taylor Swift.
“Are you bringing your new bestie Taylor Swift?” Sandilands asked. “…Are you guys like, together now?” Greeted by silence from the singer, Sandliands blundered on. “Not together as in lesbians. I’m not talking about ‘Ellen together..'” Sandilands said.
Amazing that we could still understand him even with the giant foot in his mouth.
Lorde then decided to answer.”Is there something wrong with lesbians? Is that what you’re trying to say?” to the radio hosts answer of “Oh my God no, I would love that!” (Creepy and slightly pedophilic Kyle, nice save.)
Sandilands, true to form, never knowing when to stop, then asked “Are you going to confirm now you’re in a lesbian relationship with her?”
Lorde won the round with the final put-down. “Don’t even try. It’s not working.”
