“I think this Taylor Swift track works on many levels,” explains the mashup’s creator. “What do you think? I love that both artists use their status as outsiders to connect with audiences despite being very much ‘insiders’. I think that dichotomy resonates with the art world attendees as well. On a lighter, positive note, I also wanted to add to the unbridled enthusiasm of the night. Everyone looked so happy & excited & alive & I wanted to capture that, for better or worse.”

What do you think of the mashup? Fits up kind of perfectly, right?
