During her concert in Los Angeles on Monday, Taylor Swift surprised audiences with guest appearances by Ellen DeGeneres and Alanis Morissette; last night’s inclusion of more surprise guests was thus a little less of a surprise — though the guests themselves were, perhaps, more surprising. Beck and St. Vincent joined Swift onstage at the Staples Center to sing Beck’s “Dreams.”
Following the performance, Swift tweeted:
With Haim having opened for Swift that night and in previous performances along the tour (they also have two upcoming dates), and then with these two mainstream-indie guests, it can be said that Taylor Swift has gotten very deep into the seemingly oxymoronic goal of gaining indie cred via a stadium tour. And hey, it’s pretty fun to watch her attempt to achieve it.
