The lovely internet meme we didn’t realise we needed is drunk Taylor Swift
An American singer-songwriter with the name of Taylor Alison Swift. She has a diverse repertoire, and her narrative songwriting—often influenced by her own experiences—has garnered critical acclaim and press attention. Swift, a Pennsylvania native, relocated to Nashville at the age of 14 to pursue a career as a country musician.
We’ve all been there: several drinks later on the dance floor, suddenly driven to dance. Along with dancing, you should also put on some sort of loosely interpretive performance that incorporates acting out the words to the music that is playing. Your endearingly cringe-worthy output will be uploaded to the ‘gramme by your slightly soberer friends, and the next morning you’ll have a terrible hangover and a lock screen full of alerts.
You’re fortunate to not be a celebrity, though. If you were Taylor Swift, for example, you would go viral and become a meme that will probably last for a very long time. Turns out she knows all about this hypothetical predicament because a night out earlier this month worked out very much like that.
Swift was caught on camera by drag queen A’keria Davenport performing a dramatic version of her own song “You Need To Calm Down” at New York club Beauty & Essex at the beginning of August as she celebrated being one of just two artists to receive 10 nominations for the 2019 MTV VMAs.
She appeared to be intoxicated. Although we can’t be certain, the internet has determined unequivocally that Taylor Swift is our all-drinking, all-dancing spirit animal and that her outrageous gestures can be completely reframed to fit any circumstance we damn well please, from how emotionally charged Swift’s music makes us to having to face yet another workweek to the expectation vs. reality of adulthood.
