They should change the name of the show to AWKWARD! With Kelly and Michael!

Because the Royals singer will defend her friend against shizz-stirrers to the death!
DJ Kyle Sandilands asked the 17-year-old about their relationship in the most cringe-worthy way possible, including lesbian undertones - and even bringing Ellen DeGeneres into the mix:
"Are you bringing your new bestie, Taylor Swift? I see your guys' pictures everywhere. Are you guys, like, uh, are you 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 fired back at the weird comments, questioning Kyle's views on same-sex couples:
"What do you mean you're not talking about 'Ellen together?' Is there something wrong with lesbians? Is that what you're trying to say?"
Still prepared to egg the performer on, Kyle responded:
"Oh my god, no, I would love that. Are you going to confirm now that you're in a lesbian relationship with her?"
And Lorde, obviously unenthused, responded:
"Don't ever try it. It's not working."
Team Lorde- 1
Team Kyle- 0
Don't mess with this feminist lass and her friends…because you will get burned!
