Taylor Swift Calls for Bonding Experience During ‘We Can Survive’ Concert

Taylor Swift is a rich man, mom. That’s the joke inspired by Cher that Swift used in her “You Need to Calm Down” music video. It was also a hilarious moment during the We Can Survive concert that took place at the Hollywood Bowl this past weekend when a fan managed to pass an envelope to Swift from the front row. Swift opened it up and saw money to which she replied “You really don’t need to give me money.” The fan said something that made Swift investigate further and upon closer look, noticed that the money actually had her face on it instead of the historical past Presidents. This delighted Swift, who then took the fake money and stuck it under her shirt.

It was just one of many light-hearted moments during her short 25 minute set, that was supposed to be longer but that nasty curfew made her set list run short. Another moment came with a surprise appearance from Halsey earlier in the concert where she spoke about Swift and how excited she was to see her perform and she hopes they can collab in the future. Halsey told the audience:

I gotta be honest with you guys, like the whole new album is my shower music. Like, it’s really insane. I think that my assistant has like 100 videos from outside the door where I’m in the shower like, ‘you’re my, my, my, my, my lover.” It’s SO good! She’s definitely an artist that I would absolutely love to collaborate with at some point if possible.

Swift Wants Concert Goers To Have a Bonding Experience

Speaking of lover, Swift wanted concert goers to have a wonderful bonding experience. Before launching into her performance of “Lover” she told the crowd about the “romantic love song sway” she wanted them to all do together.

It is so good to see you Los Angeles! […] I wanna say, thank you so much to Entercom and to AMP for having this tonight, honestly, the fact that the benefits go to the American Cancer Society really just personally means a lot to me, it means a lot to my family, and I know so many people here tonight personally relate to and appreciate that this night benefits cancer research, so thank you for coming. On top of that, I was watching the show, and I was thinking that this is possibly the best line up I’ve ever seen of artists. I was watching it, there’s so much amazing music out right now, and the artists that played this show before me are phenomenal, so why don’t you give another round of applause to them, their bands, and their dancers. So um, coming out and getting to be with you tonight, standing on this stage, and getting to be in this concert environment with you, some of my favorite moments happen at concerts where we all know the words to a song, and scream them together, which is fun. You did that the first and second songs, which I appreciate. I love when everyone is dancing together, jumping together. But there’s one specific wonderful bonding experience that I really love during a concert, and that is the romantic love song sway. It’s good. Everybody is like, ‘We’re at this concert, it’s the end of the night, this is a love song, and I’m just going to link arms with the person I’m with, or with this person who seems nice, and I’d love it if you would do that for this song. It’s called Lover!

You need to calm down if you don’t agree with Swift about Love Equality!

Before performing “You Need to Calm Down” off her critically acclaimed 7th studio album Lover, Swift spoke to the audience about her views on love:

“So I just had an album come out a little while ago. The album is called Lover. Has anyone here heard of it? Um, so for me, I love to write songs, I really like to write songs about love all the different facets of love. I find that love is such a complex part of the human experience because it’s so many things. Love is chaos, love is joy, love is excitement, love is […] sometimes being so clear on something that you just know it without seeing it. And I find it so interesting that you know, one of the dreams I’ve wanted to say for a long time about what I think love is, it’s a major, major thing that love is. I think love is equality! And if anyone here disagrees with me, they need to calm down. Do you agree with me, Los Angeles?”

Swift was able to sing five songs all together and included hits from her album 1989; “Blank Space” and “Shake it Off” which was the final song of the evening. Swift told the crowd that before the curfew they had one last chance to sing loud and jump around and shake!


Taylor Swift Performs at The Bluebird Cafe 14 Years After Being Discovered There!

Great news Swifties, the Country Taylor Swift has Risen! Swift performed as a surprise guest at the Bluebird Cafe, (where she was first discovered 14 years ago), as part of a documentary to celebrate the historical 35 years of the establishment.

Swift sat alongside Chris Wiseman and told a story of their first co-write together. She came in with some ideas that he didn’t really understand, but she went home and finished the song anyway, that song was “Love Story” and it’s the song that crossed her over from Country to Pop right from the beginning. “Love Story” became Swift’s first number one on Billboard Pop Songs, marking the highest peak by a country song on the chart since Shania Twain’s “You’re Still the One”. It is her best-selling single to date! She couldn’t help but play it for the intimate crowd at the Bluebird.

The Bluebird is known for it’s Writers’ Rounds where singer/songwriters perform songs that they have written, even if they aren’t the ones who sing it on the radio. Swift shared how normally she doesn’t have those chances until Little Big Town recorded her song “Better Man.”

“I wanted to say a big thank you to the Bluebird Cafe. I think any songwriter in town would echo my sentiments and say that this is kind of the only place where this exists – this particular place where you get to come and hear the writer’s take on the songs they’ve put out into the world. When I would play writers nights … I didn’t have the experience of a writer, writing something and then it going out into the world and you earing it from someone else’s perspective until recently. Little Big Town gave me the opportunity to feel that way … to be at the Bluebird and play a song you’ve maybe heard on the radio.  I will always be forever grateful to them for that.”



Swift also performed “Shake It Off”

The Rock shares with Daily Star Uk

“I probably shouldn’t say this but we both love the music of Taylor Swift or, as us real fans call her, ‘Tay Tay’. It doesn’t matter how bad LA traffic gets, if you’ve got “Shake It Off” blasting out the radio there ain’t nothing that is going to bring your mood down.”

We can’t forget the time Johnson lip synced “Shake It Off” on the TV Show “Lip Sync Battle.”

We hope your friendship never breaks, burns or ends!
