The Victoria’s Secret Angels nailed Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” in their annual promotional video, which airs tonight on CBS.
Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel, Karlie Kloss and Lily Aldridge proved to be die-hard Swifties as they lip-sync to the 1989 track.
Swift was definitely one proud friend, and honorary angel, as she tweeted the link to the video with the caption: “Anddddd *swoon* #VSF2014.” Swift’s BFFs, Karlie and Lily, seemed to have memorized the song by heart based on their performance.
The promotional video was released last Monday, following the Angel’s 2013 rendition of “I Knew You Were Trouble.” Swift returns to the Victoria’s Secret fashion show after she performed with Fall Out Boy in last year. The 24-year-old would reportedly perform two of her tracks, “Blank Space” and “Style” during the Dream Girl section and Angel Ball finale as previously reported by Mirror.
Supermodel Behati Prinsloo, who is also Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine’s wife, was chosen to open this year’s show. The model had nothing but nice words for the pop star.
"Taylor Swift, having her back this year was great. She knows a lot of the girls personally, too, so it was really fun having her around. She was backstage a lot and hanging out and we saw her not just during rehearsals for the show but we also hung out with her. She's just great. She's got great energy, she's really fun,” she told E! News.
The singer stole the show as she strutted alongside 47 models wearing a number of racy and lacy ensembles. Truly, a far cry from her country look of cowboy boots and sun dress combination in her earlier years.
Swift’s performance in 2013 gained so much buzz that she was hailed as an “honorary angel” and even returned for another year.
One model, who seem to think otherwise was notably absent in this year’s fashion show. Jessica Hart was previously quoted saying that Swift "did not fit” as an angel. An insider confirms to the NY Daily News that the lingerie company has since fired the Australian model for her slur against the Grammy winner.
“It's not been announced that Jessica is not walking, but it was a direct request from Taylor that this be the case if she were to go. No one can know that Taylor requested Ms. Hart not be in the show; they want to keep that under wraps but that's the facts," the source revealed.
There you have it for the latest scoop on the much-awaited Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2014.
