Speaking to Yahoo Lifestyle at the 2023 ARIA Awards on Wednesday, the singer-songwriter shared that he had a hilarious encounter with the popular TV host that has “stuck” with him for the past year and a half.
“It wasn’t really to the public. It was something that Sonia Kruger said when she was on the show, and I don’t know if it’s PG if I can share it, but it’s stuck with me for a year and a half,” he detailed.
“She had a very short dress on and she said, ‘Both ends are smiling tonight’. And I was just shocked, but I worked out that was just Sonia, she loves it.”
Sonia has become quite well known for her raunchy sense of humour in recent years, with a number of her X-rated comments making headlines across the country.
During her Gold Logie campaign in July, the 57-year-old left The Morning Show hosts Larry Emdur and Kylie Gillies stunned when she made a joke about her campaign slogan ‘Onya Sonia’.
“[Onya Sonya] was better than my school campaign, which was ‘Sonia, Sonia, Let Me Onya’,” she remarked.
'Sonia Kruger is my idol'
Sonia has previously said she prefers to keep things light-hearted with her sense of humour, telling Digital Spy: “I don't like it when life is taken too seriously - it makes me uncomfortable.
“When you take yourself too seriously, you're in a very dangerous place,” she continued. “[Then] it is about ego. I'm the kind of person who, at a funeral, will make some stupid joke because it's all a bit heavy.”
Fans on social media have praised Sonia for her quick wit and hilarious commentary, with one person tweeting: “Sonia Kruger is my idol! Her wicked sense of humour comes to the forefront on @dancingau and I have to say, it’s what I’ve missed in her other hosting gigs!”
