New Besties?: Taylor Swift And Carly Simon Perform ‘You’re So Vain’
Taylor Swift has made a new friend. And a very cool one at that.
The hot-pants lover, cat lady, and “22” performer took to the stage in Foxborough, Massachusetts for her RED tour on Saturday, but she wasn’t alone. Taylor had a very special surprise waiting in the wings: Legendary singer-songwriter Carly Simon.
“Before I bring out my special guest I have this question that I have always, always had,” she said to the crowd while introducing Simon. “I think a lot of you have probably had this question, too, and always wondered what the answer is: Who is the song ‘You’re So Vain’ by Carly Simon about?”
The duo went on to perform Carly’s famous breakup anthem, and they seemed to be enjoying their on-stage time together. At one point, the singers embraced and jumped up and down in unison like two longtime gal pals.
Taylor wore signature stripes, while Carly rocked a sequined skirt and a jaunty hat with a feather. Carly wins.
Tay is known for calling out her exes through song, and she expressed her admiration for the great Carly’s writing style in a sweet backstage interview with MTV. “That is the most direct way anyone has ever addressed a breakup,” she gushed about the tune. “It’s amazing.” Watch her and Carly discuss their duet, below.
