Uzo Aduba’s Experience Performing with Taylor Swift Described in 9 Rebecca Black GIFs

One does not simply get down on Friday.

On Saturday, Aug. 22 Uzo Aduba was inducted into the Taylor Swift Hall of Fame when she performed a most unexpected duet of “White Horse” with Swift at the Staples Center. The Orange is the New Black star opened up about her 1989 World Tour experience in a brief interview with Vulture, which is best illustrated in a series of GIFs featuring Friday spokeswoman, Ms. Rebecca Black.

Aduba told Vulture, “I woke up one morning and I just had a message from her. She’s like, ‘Do you want to come sing? Want to sing together? Let’s do something.'”
