Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart Give Dramatic Readings of Taylor Swift Lyrics So They Can Join Her #Squad

This needs to happen.

You know who’s a glaring omission from Taylor Swift’s glamorous friend circle? BFFs Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart, obviously! This week the two decided to audition for Tay’s crew by doing dramatic readings of “Bad Blood” and “Blank Space,” giving 1989 the Shakespearean gravitas we never realized it needed.

And judging by Taylor’s reaction, it seems like two spots just opened up in her squad. Brace yourselves for Bad Blood: A Tragedy in Five Acts, starring Tay, Ian, and Patrick, coming to a Shakespeare in the Park near you.
