Taylor Swift appeared on “SNL” Saturday night, singing a 10-minute version of the song about her breakup with Jake Gyllenhaal … and wow, the words and the emotions behind it are biting.
Swift performed “All Too Well,” a cut from her new, re-released version of “Red.”
You’ve heard the song before, but watching Taylor perform it has gotta be pretty blistering for Gyllenhaal … it’s really raw.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
Taylor also got in the act during a sketch with Pete Davidson … a sketch called “Three Sad Virgins.” It’s a roast of 3 dudes on the show — Martin, Ben and John … skewering them for not having game.
The fact that so many brands/official accounts are putting “taylor’s version” in their account names because they are openly endorsing taylor and HER 👏 OWNERSHIP 👏 RIGHTS 👏 #TaylorsVersionpic.twitter.com/W3gCJiQryM
The re-mastered version of “Red” dropped Friday … and tons of corporations got into the act by changing their Twitter names to support the album … corporations that include Starbucks, Sour Patch Kids, Olive Garden, Etsy, Panera Bread, Chips Ahoy, Taco Bell and even the Kansas City Chiefs.
As for “Red” … as you know, Taylor’s re-recorded lots of her own songs from the elusive masters she doesn’t own, and it’s gone over big.
Taylor’s been on “SNL” 5 times now … her first appearance was way back in 2009.
