Taylor Swift's squad goals include Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart

Is there anyone alive that doesn’t love Taylor Swift? It’s getting harder and harder to think such a person exists.

Case in point: Celeb BFFs Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart have requested to join T-Swizzle’s squad, using their recitation of her lyrics as their application.

“So @IanMcKellen recited Bad Blood and I did Blank Space on @NPRAskMeAnother. May we join the squad, @taylorswift13?” asks Stewart on Twitter. Note how perfectly polite and British he is: “May we join the squad,” indeed.

In case you’re curious, the “Bad Blood” recitation happened on Yahoo Screen and also includes some “Uptown Funk.”


And of course, who is Swift to say no to these two fine actors? She posted a tribute to them on Twitter and says, “You’ve made my day. You two are ULTIMATE Squad Goals.”

Now she just needs to find the perfect music video to ask them to star in, like how she recruited her entire cadre of besties for “Bad Blood.”
