Taylor Swift Makes a Pre-Single Splash With Time 100 Gala Performance


The megastar gave an impromptu speech in the midst of her performance in which she said she believes she was selected for the TIME 100 list because of “the things she writes” — mostly songs.


“For me, writing, I’ve always known it was the main pillar holding up my career,” said Swift, who took the stage in a floor-length, off-the-shoulder yellow and pink gown, with pink-dipped hair she’d earlier revealed in Easter photos on social media.


The event was to honor Time magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people of the year, an accolade she shared with non-entertainers like Donald Trump, Pelosi, Brett Kavanaugh and Alexandria Ocasia-Cortez.


Before she performed, Swift made the rounds in the room, and was spotted chatting with “Captain Marvel” star Brie Larson.


Another Oscar-winner was glimpsed enjoying Swift’s singing: “Bohemian Rhapsody’s” Rami Malek was dancing in his seat, alongside “Game of Thrones” alum Richard Madden and the Mother of Dragons, Emilia Clarke.


A countdown clock began on her website and social media exactly 13 days (13 being a lucky number in the Swift world) ahead of the release.
