It’s been a hot second, Swiftie Nation.
The Mother of Fighting Dragons With You is having a grand ole comeback nowadays as she retakes back all her kingdoms with her latest – and definitely not her last – studio album, Lover. Although she came to slay, T-Swizzle found herself slain after Jimmy Fallon did the unthinkable. But before we get to that, let’s have a look at the blue and the pink colours of the vinyl version of Lover and talk about the upcoming tour.
So, here’s the part where Taylor is put on the spot. This one comes via Andrea Swift, her mother. Seems Taylor has had Lasik surgery and, well, she had some strong drugs after that made her loopy. Unbeknownst to her, she was videotaped by her mom who promptly took the clip to Jimmy and the rest might be comedy gold.
And finally, here’s Taylor and Jimmy doing the Name That Song challenge. Also, apparently Def Leppard knew about iPhones. They were ahead of their time for sure. Also, Jimmy had to put one last fast one over the Forever and Always Fearless One by having one last song be a version of one of her own songs… I saw that one coming a mile away but still fun to witness.
I wasn’t crazy about that suit-dress confection though. I mean, it’s not all bad but on interviews I feel one should stick to classic rather than concept. I don’t hate asymmetry but I don’t think this one worked. Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who types things on the internet and hopes someone reads them, we’re not anyone you should take fashion tips from anyways.
As far as I can tell, all the clips seem not to be region-locked, which is a first for NBC (sorry Viacom, you’re known for not letting us international fans see stuff). A shoutout to the one and only Andrea Swift for still being the only one that can embarrass the Enchantress even when she’s about to be 30 years old this December. The Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar is coming to SNL this Saturday as the musical guest.
But let’s be honest… We want Taylor to do at least a cameo on one of the skits. No idea if that’ll happen, given her crazy schedule.
