Taylor Swift knows how to make an audience lose their sh*t.
In her 1989 world tour, she has been bringing guest celebrities on stage to sing a duet, or dance together, or chant around a fire as initiation into Taylor’s Cult Of Famous Friends.
Ellen DeGeneres. Alanis Morrissette. Mary J Blige. Singers, models, TV hosts – you never know who Taylor might be hiding backstage.
And soon, the glorious Taylor will be in Australia. Or Aus-Taylor-ia, as we may have to start calling it – because prepare yourselves for total domination when she dazzles us with her sequinned costumes and catchy songs.
We know that she will be on the lookout for powerful women she can duet with. And for the love of wombats, we hope they are Aussie.
Taylor, if you’re reading this, we have some suggestions.
Eight Aussie women we’d like to see twerking with Taylor.
One of our favourite funny women – she never disappoints. Watch her in this video when she surprised Heath Ledger on the red carpet. Well, technically, it wasn’t really Magda. It was Sharon Strzelecki.
We’ve never seen her dance, but we have seen her talk. We’d love to see her Shake It Off. And as the only woman in Australia to have ever taken the top job, Julia Gillard deserves some Taylor love.
