Taylor Swift has done it again! The lyrical genius just debuted her 10-minute version of the song All Too Well. But before performing the anticipated hit track on Saturday Night Live, Swift made a hilarious appearance on Pete Davidson's skit. Here's everything you need to know.
The bit started with The King of Staten Island star asking three of his friends - the newest SNL writers - to join him in a parody music video. Of course, they said yes (how could they say no to Davidson?). Sadly for them, the comedian used this chance to make fun of the writers, calling them the Three Sad Virgins. And so the triad of Ben Marshall, John Higgins, and Martin Herlihy decided they wanted the whole thing to stop. "We can't do this anymore; it's humiliating," they all agreed. Davidson allowed the song to end, but "only after we do the bridge," he said.
And so our girl Taylor entered the picture, known for her jaw-dropping bridges. The artist joined the sketch, singing her version of Three Sad Virgins. It's no secret the record-breaking singer is a total icon when it comes to singing about men, but this latest track is her most LOL-worthy of all time.
The 11-time Grammy winner continued wowing the SNL audience with the live showing of her latest release. On Friday night, Red (Taylors Version) finally came out. Swifties were thrilled because not only did we get the re-recorded version of the album, the Love Story singer blessed us with unreleased songs, and most importantly, the unrecorded parts of All Too Well.
As Swift performed, the short film for the song, starring Dylan O'Brien and Sadie Sink, played behind her. The video went viral almost immediately after it was debuted. Sink played 21-year-old Swift, while O'Brien played her then-boyfriend, Jake Gyllenhaal. It has been speculated since 2012 that the song is about the Prisoners star.
The music video showcased what went down in the past relationship that happened a little over a decade ago. The clips correspond to the lyrics, from "singing in the car getting lost upstate" to "you said if we had been closer in age, maybe it would have been fine." If you didn't know, the pair had a 9-year age difference, with Gyllenhaal being 30 at the time.
The song became an ultimate hit after its first release in 2012. And now, Swift says, "this song is 100% about us, and for you," referring to her devoted fans. The Shake It Off singer has given us yet another astonishing record. Swifties can now deal with heartbreak by listening to the extended song, All Too Well.
We'll be over here steaming Red (Taylors Version) and supporting this talented queen.
