Yeah, you heard me. Last night at L.A.’s Staples Center Taylor Swift brought out surprise guest Alanis Morissette, and the two took the stage to perform an epic duet of her 1995 classic, “You Oughta Know.”
WHY DIDN’T I BUY TICKETS TO THIS?! Taylor also said a couple words before the duet…
“She defined the music of her decade,” Swift, told the audience (of 10 years olds who probably had no idea what was going on). “She inspired a generation of confessional female singer-songwriters who all of a sudden felt like you could actually say these raw feelings that you had. You could actually sing about your real life, you could put detail to it, you could get really, really mad if you wanted to.”
The “Bad Blood” crooner added, “I think it’s fair to say that so many of the female singer-songwriters of my generation, including myself, would not write the way that we do without her and her music. And she has written some of the most brilliant music—in particular probably inarguably the greatest breakup song of all-time.”
HEAR HEAR. Unfortunately there was no “Ironic” encore, but I’m including the original video for all you YOUNGINS to enjoy.
Taylor Swift released a little MTV teaser for her newest music video/single, “Wildest Dreams” and it feels very animal and romance heavy (you know, like Taylor).
Earlier this month she announced that this song was going to be the next single but she didn’t mention that Scott Eastwood was gonna be featured. And so it is, and so it goes (sexily, with lots of Zebras).
Britney Spears has some really important issues to discuss with you. World peace? Civil rights? HELL NO. She wants to talk Taylor Swift and being a movie star, DUH.
“I love Taylor Swift,” the “I’m a Slave 4 U” pop star said during the Teen Choice Awards. “I think she’s adorable. I love her music. Her music makes me so happy. She’s very level-headed. She’s a very, very smart girl, very wise.”
“I think the writing is so simple and so endearing and it’s funny!” Spears said. “I started watching the show before it got really big and I was telling everyone about it. They were all like, ‘What are you talking about?’ and then it got really big.”
Then she went on to talk about the Greek financial crisis.
“I used to watch a lot of TV shows,” Spears said. “I watched Once Upon a Time and Revenge and Californication…I haven’t watched a lot of TV shows lately.”
Taylor Swift stepped out for dinner with her beau Calvin Harris yesterday, rocking a very pricey outfit. But don’t worry- pricey doesn’t always mean sexy. In fact, it was more cat lady than anything.
The “Blank Space” songstress, 25, held Calvin’s hand while modeling a white Elizabeth and James “Aisling” crop top (which is sold out, but a near-match from the label sells for $245 at NeimanMarcus.com). With her white (and believe me, the girl LOVES white) she wore flared, light-blue Kimchi Blue skirt—only $49 at UrbanOutfitters.com. But that’s not what put the price tag on the outfit into the thousands…
It was those cat accessories that REALLY did her in, according to Us Weekly. Swift worked a blush crossbody purse and ivory satin heels, both of which, by Charlotte Olympia, boast embroidered kitten features (and ears!). While the “Kitty 100″ shoes sell for $950, the “Feline” purse rings in at $765.
