Taylor Swift Rejected By Famous British Actor

Famous friend harvester Taylor Swift loves to trot out the famous friends she has harvested at each 1989 tour stop. But she doesn’t always get to harvest all the friends she wants to harvest. Recently, a very famous actor turned down her offer to appear on stage during one of her L.A. stops because he had “something else to do that night.”

Sir Ian McKellen, who of course is famous for appearing in the Lord Of The Rings and X-Men franchises, recently did the unthinkable and rejected Swift. Speaking to Gay Star News, McKellen said, “She did ask me to appear with Patrick Stewart at her show in L.A., but I had something else to do that night.” Sounds like the old “I have to wash my hair” excuse. (I would love to get a list of all the stars who’ve turned down Taylor’s cameo offers. Like, you know OMI was only a stand-in because some bigger names had to cancel.)

Well, it turns out there could be some bad blood that led to his decision to opt out of her friend-harvesting ceremony. When asked how it feels to be part of her “squad,” McKellen explained that he isn’t.

“When I was living in Peter Jackson’s apartment in New York, Taylor Swift bought it while I was there and I was thrown out before I wanted to leave! That hardly puts me in Taylor Swift’s team, does it?”

Can’t wait to see how Swift passive aggressively claps back at the old man in song.
