We’ve been pretty excited about Taylor Swift’s appearance on the New Girl season finale for a while now. As it turns out it's as self-referentially LOLz as we were hoping. The singer's cameo had been hyped by her co-stars with Zooey Deschanel (Jess) saying, “She’s awesome. She’s super-funny and really smart. Very professional and we loved working with her.” While Jake Johnson (Nick) admitting that her performance was “very good” and revealed that; “she had a little monologue and delivered it perfectly.” Meanwhile the show’s Executive Producer Liz Meriwether said: “She kind of came in and nailed it.”
As it turns out she was only on screen for a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it 30 seconds but most importantly her turn as Elaine – the ex of Shivrang – was a) much better than her not great turn in Valentine’s Day and b) quite clever in the way it played on her public persona as Crazy Cat Lady Singer/Songwriter. As the perky, journal writing Elaine, her scene with Shivrang (or “Shivvy” as she calls him) was very funny.
Can we suggest a new, 30 minute sitcom called TAYLOR! about a perky, journal writing country-pop star who lives with a sassy best friend (play by Zooey Deschanel)? *paging Hollywood right now*
