Everyone needs a buddy at a party, even Taylor Swift. Especially when that party is the MTV Video Music Awards.
Which one of her BFF’s is best to calm her down, keep her grounded, and also make her performance stellar on Sunday, August 24th?
+ Lena Dunham
Nobody knows unabashed feminist sister power like Lena Dunham. Imagine if Dunham had been there when Kanye stole Swift’s special moment? She’d rush the stage and rip off her clothes, revealing “Free Taylor” written on her stomach.
+ Emma Stone
Similar to Dunham, Stone would keep Swift grounded in feminist realness. Like Dunham, Stone would keep it classy, and funny.
Want deep? Lorde knows deep. She’d keep Swift in check with her emotions. Maybe they could even do a duet?!
+ Jennifer Lawrence
Admit it, everyone likes to poke fun at others every once in a while. Lawrence will bring the comedy smack talk, and make the VMA’s a night to remember (especially when she “accidentally” trips).
+ Ed Sheeran
Another friend of Taylor’s who might be at the show anyway. But either way, gosh, he probably makes a great (platonic?) date!
+ Selena Gomez
“Bieber who?” is all Gomez and Swift would say throughout the night.
+ Katy Perry
Just to really show John Mayer they’ve moved on.
+ Kristen Stewart
Stewart could help Swift learn the “I’m angry at some unknown thing” resting face.
+ Gwenyth Paltrow
She could subtly call Paltrow her “mother figure” throughout the evening… though Gwen would probably not like that very much.
+ Kellie Pickler
We love Kellie Pickler, and we think the VMAs need more country music, so…
+ Meredith “The Cat” Swift
Picture it, Swift walking the red carpet, kitty in arm, no explanation. She could pretend she’s Dr. Evil from Austin Powers!
Clearly the obvious winner for who should be Taylor Swifts date to the VMAs is…… MEREDITH THE CAT!
