Call us clinically insane, but if Taylor Swift suddenly crashed our swanky rich person nuptials, we know exactly to do: demand Taylor perform, force our wedding planner to go buy an acoustic guitar and then cry to the dulcet strains of “Love Story” while eating three pieces of cake. Duh. That’s Like Unexpected Taylor Swift 101!
Guess not everyone agrees, seeing as how Taylor’s appearance at the wedding of Liam Kerr and Kyle Kennedy, daughter of the late Michael Kennedy, this past weekend is causing a bit of a kerfuffle, even though she was obviously there as Conor Kennedy‘s date. “[Conor and Taylor] texted me an hour before the wedding and asked if they could come. I responded with a very clear, ‘Please do not come.’ They came anyway,” mother of the bride Victoria Gifford Kennedy complained to the Boston Herald. “I personally went up to Ms. Swift, whose entrance distracted the entire event, politely introduced myself to her, and asked her as nicely as I could to leave. It was like talking to a ghost. She seemed to look right past me.” According to Swift’s rep, however, “Taylor was invited to the wedding and the bride thanked her profusely for being there.” Hmmm, this all sounds kind of fishy. We understand that it was Kyle’s day, but we suspect there could have been a few other reasons Taylor wasn’t exactly welcome at the wedding:
- The bride and groom took Taylor’s presence as some sort of dark omen portending doom for their relationship. (Most likely scenario.)
- They knew Taylor might attract a lot of paparazzi. And if you thought the bride freaked out over the wrong table clothes…
- The Kennedys didn’t want to give Swift any song fodder! Up until now, her most recent influences have been the complexities of Massachusetts real estate law.
- Taylor looked so good, she risked upstaging the bride. Okaaaaaay? Seriously though, if Taylor Swift came to our wedding, we’d ask that she be seated behind some kind of Japanese folding screen so no one could look at her hair during the exchanging of the vows.
It has to be one of these, because…come on, it’s Taylor Swift. It’d be like having a magical singing bunny at your wedding! Just enjoy it. Jeez.
