Taylor Swift Treats Lucky Fans to Intimate Acoustic Set at SiriusXM
Swift’s set included songs from ‘Reputation,’ as well as a cover of Tom Petty’s 'American Girl.
Taylor Swift entered the SiriusXM fishbowl mid-afternoon Friday (Nov. 10) to play an intimate, short set for a select few fans. To celebrate the release of her sixth studio album, Reputation, the singer played stripped down versions of the final two tracks and one cover in the glass-walled NYC studio. Rocking the coolest dark plaid trousers and button-adorned heels, Swift first sat toward the front of the fishbowl, pointing out that she was basically on the set of her “…Ready for It?” music video, ready to break through the glass. Then, in a single sentence she confirmed many fan theories, and explained that the album was representative of her life, beginning at the first track with where she was and how she felt when starting the album, and following the drama through to the present time with track 15.
“Call It What You Want” became all-the-more endearing as Swift plucked at her acoustic guitar, backed up by a small group of vocalists, another guita, and cello. At the close of the song, Swift joked about making a smooth transition and made her way to the grand piano at the center of the fishbowl.
Ivory candles sat on platters covered in flower petals of the same hue on top of the grand piano, a detail which Swift complimented SiriusXM for. Before playing “New Year’s Day,” Swift explained she had a few lyrics rattling around in a notebook that she’d wanted to put into a song: “Please don’t ever become a stranger/ Whose laugh I could recognize anywhere.” She explained that she was enamored with people’s obsession with who they’d kiss on New Year’s Eve, when in reality the person that matters is the one who will give you the Advil the next day.
Rather than play another Reputation track after “New Year’s Day,” Swift played a beautiful rendition of Tom Petty’s “American Girl,” opting to take it slower and remain seated at the piano.
After the performance, Swift left the fishbowl to take photographs with the lucky concertgoers, who were able to briefly hang out in the lounge at SiriusXM and eat Magnolia cupcakes adorned with the album title in its classic gothic font. Swift’s parents, Andrea and Scott, were both in attendance and hung out until the meet and greet ended, along with publicist-pal Tree Paine.
davepastern: The Ready for it... video was good (but I loved Ghost in the Shell so that was gonna always be a given lol), not really a fan of End Game (the song or video). Sorry, but it's my least favourite song on Reputation, and joins the ranks of a few other songs

davepastern: that I dislike (should've said no, better than revenge, holy ground, and style).

neoswiftie: no need to be sorry, wasn't my favorite song on reputation either, but I do love the video, especially the London sequence

neoswiftie: Hi StarlightDreamer, I'm not a member there... but I'm pretty sure some of our members are there too, I guess they prefer to be on both fora. Why do you ask?
Jan 16, 2018 7:22:53 GMT -5
neoswiftie: I don't mind that you promote your forum and everyone can join here and stay a member there too, I really don't mind, there is also taycon.proboards.com/ they were first
Jan 16, 2018 7:26:25 GMT -5
swiftvote: I've been here from the start... no drama like on TC or the new 'The Swift Life' app, I don't need another forum
Jan 16, 2018 7:37:49 GMT -5
swiftvote: I guess most swifties are now on tumblr and The Swift Life, but they are also chatting in 'private chatrooms', problem with those chatrooms is that 1 person has to approve who is allowed in, and who is allowed to stay, heard that there was drama there too.
Jan 16, 2018 7:41:24 GMT -5
neoswiftie: When there are a lot of members, doesn't matter where, you are gonna get drama... that's why certain topics are better avoided
Jan 16, 2018 7:43:25 GMT -5
neoswiftie: Here we have a safe place for everyone that loves Taylor for who she is, what she does without having to whine about the 3 things other 'huge' fora forbid... Po Ra Re, there are enough other places for those topics
Jan 16, 2018 7:46:23 GMT -5
swiftvote: Agreed, those topics are what causes the most misery on TSL
Jan 16, 2018 7:48:31 GMT -5
twothirtyam: I like TSL but you can't really connect to anyone, short conversations are possible on someone's post... but once you go somewhere else it's not possible to find it back
Jan 16, 2018 8:30:58 GMT -5
neoswiftie: Lol now they have a problem with Joseph Kahn, you know... the one friend who defended Taylor through thick and thin, you know... one of her REAL friends

neoswiftie: Because he said that pitbulls are dangerous, and I know he is exaggerating but what sane parent would leave his/her baby/todler alone with a pitbull? Just imagine a child who doesn't know how to behave around an animal, poking in it's eye... or worse!
Jan 16, 2018 11:14:50 GMT -5
neoswiftie: Some breeds have a bite and jaw that can kill, Joseph is not saying every pitbull would do that, just saying you never know what might happen, and if something happens what then?
Jan 16, 2018 11:17:40 GMT -5
neoswiftie: Is anyone on the TSL app? If so, did you get free packs and picks today or yesterday?
