It’s always a blessed day when I get the chance to write about Taylor Swift twice. Earlier this morning I mourned over the fact that the sex tape floating around did not actually feature her and Harry Styles, but rather a morass of spam and surveys. And now on the same day when I thought all was lost, I get the opportunity to write about her 15 best friends. 15! I didn’t even know best friends came in numbers so high.
While talking to Ryan Seacrest during their couples pedicure sesh today, Taylor shared some fun facts about her new album.
And while Taylor probably won’t be receiving a V-Day card from her ex, Harry Styles, she has “like 15 best friends” that make her happy. In fact, her next single, “22,” is written about her massive posse of BFFs. “Finally I’ve got this amazing group of girlfriends and we tell each other everything,” she said. “We’re together all the time. I think that was kind of the marker of me being 22—having all these friends and there are a lot of question marks in your life…but the one thing that you have is you have each other.”
First of all. WOW. I’m still stuck on the number 15. Like if they get bagels from their slumber party brunch, Taylor would have to say “one dozen bagels please, plus three.” Can you believe that? Here’s how my bagel orders go: “excuse me, may I have one bagel all the way. And another one to go. Well, for that one-to-go, can I freeze it? Does it stay go in the freezer? You know what? Two bagels for here, I’m hungry!”
Second of all, how are they possibly together all the time? Logistically speaking I just find that very hard to believe. 15 people can really coordinate their schedules that well together?! Are my friends lying about all these birthday dinners and work commitments and family emergencies that always get in the way of our big group dinners? And by big, bear in mind, we’re not even close to hitting that magical 15 number.
Third of all, will this be the first song on her new album?
Fourth of all, does she run all her thoughts through a 7th-grade translator so she sounds just right for her target demo?
Fifth of all, 15!
