Starring Taylor’s #squad
This is actually becoming a “thing” for me now. I even decided to follow Taylor’s Instagram account because I’m so curious to know every night who she’s going to bring out! Honestly, when I attended her concert last week, I think my co-workers have never seen me more excited for her to announce who the guest was and it’s weird because if I had to designate myself a percentage for how much of a fan I am, it’s 57%.
So last night, Taylor brought out the STARS! Uzo Aduba joined her as they sang “White Horse” together. Mary J. Blige sang two songs! And then Taylor brought out Sean O’Pry – the actor from her “Blank Space” video and … wait for it – Matt Leblanc and Chris Rock. HOW random is that? Now, I really suggest you watch the video above this because it. is. awkward. I was left with so many questions afterwards that I think I’m now starting to wonder if D-list stars are paying TAYLOR to appear at her shows. Man, she’s so powerful. And this video is so lol.
I think this just made my entire Friday! A 7-year old boy who was diagnosed with autism at age 4 loves Taylor Swift so much that he memorized this piano medley for her of 1989. And it’s actually incredible.
Taylor has since responded to the young boy via Twitter and has invited him to one of her shows!
Sometime last year, my co-workers had bought 24 tickets to Taylor Swift. At the time, I was like “Oh, nah I don’t want to go. I hadn’t even listened to 1989 really.” Then the week before the concert was actually happening, a serious wave of FOMO fell over me. I needed a ticket. I wanted to go, but I didn’t want to say anything because I had turned it down so hard before! Luckily, someone pulled out in that final week and a spot had opened up to which I quickly accepted. Even in the time since the album was released, I still hadn’t listened to it that much other than the songs that had gotten radio play, but I was still really excited. I’ve heard such good things about Taylor as a performer and I really wanted to see it for myself!
As a group, we held a “Taylor Tailgate” prior to going into Levi’s Stadium. The demographics around us? Young girls and their parents, as expected! This was still one of the most fun things that I’ve been a part of this summer though :)

Wow! I think this is the first time we’ve hit all 5 Yow Yow! categories!
I’ve loved Alessia ever since I heard her single “Here” and this cover of Bad Blood does not disappoint. I can’t wait to hear more from her in the future.

Wow, Balmain though was really havinga night with the celebrities especially since Kendall announced that they were going to be the next H&M collaboration! Zendaya looked amazing on the red carpet last night, but one of my biggest disappointments? That she was not interviewed by Giuliana for the E! Red Carpet show. The drama was heard ’round the world, but this was a huge missed opportunity for both parties to squash all of that and they didn’t. Leaving her out of the segment is now going to make people speculate a little bit I’m sure.
Talk about some serious build-up, I feel like we’ve been waiting for this music video for over a week and the anticipation was only slightly killing us. I didn’t even see all of the celebrities that were featured in it. Meredith, were you even there?! It’s a pretty extravagant video, but here’s how we felt about it afterwards:

So having two best friends on the cover of Vogue is awfully sweet and kind of adorable. How can we hate it? The editorial is even better because the two friends ventured all the way to Big Sur for this photoshoot. Check out the goods underneath the cut!
The secret’s out! Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift are Vogue’s March cover girls! In this short clip by Vogue, the two compete for the title of the “best best friend.”
So Taylor released her music video for “Style” this morning and it’s not really anything we expected. I mean it’s not a masterpiece or the most original thing we’ve ever seen either, but it didn’t blow us a way. Things I wanted to see: either a hotter guy or a Harry Styles look-a-like because c’mon, we all know this song is about him, right?
Okay, now excuse us while we go listen to this jam 10x in a row.
