Swift also shared a sweet moment before her performance, where she was with Paula Abdul and her two cats Olivia and Meredith. Swift captioned the photo, “I’m trying to give them a normal upbringing but when the little ones and I ran into the flawless @paulaabdul on the way to red carpet we STRAIGHT UP had to get a pic.”
Swift recently shared the meaning behind her new single to Ryan Seacrest, saying, “This song is such a celebration and it’s so playful. What I wanted was to make people happy about themselves because I think right now everyone literally is so neurotic and insecure and anxious about things, you know? I think there should be like a way for us to have a song stuck in our heads that reinforces the fact that we’re individuals, we’re different and obviously there are a lot of songs about ‘I’m special,’ but I hadn’t heard one recently that was about I’m special because of who I am.”
Her new song broke YouTube records and amassed 65.2 million views in just a short while, allowing Swift to become the all-time leading female and solo 24-hour debut for the streaming platform.
Swift and Urie are also scheduled to perform at iHeartRadio’s Wango Tango on June 1 in Southern California.
