Taylor Swift has been pulling a lot of her favourite people onstage during her 1989 tour recently, and last night in Los Angeles one of her special guests was Alanis Morissette.
"She defined the music of her decade," Swift said while introducing Morissette. "She inspired a generation of confessional female singer-songwriters who all of a sudden [made it OK to] actually say these raw feelings that you had. You could actually sing about your real life, you could put detail to it, you could get really, really made if you wanted to. And I think it’s fair to say that so many of the female singer-songwriters of my generation, including myself, would not write the way that we do without her and her music. And she has written some of the most brilliant music – in particular probably inarguably the greatest breakup song of all time."
While Universal Music seems to have taken down the five-minute video of the two performing “You Oughta Know” together (heartbreakers!), here is a 15-second snippet via T-Swift’s tweet.
You oughta know we really wish we’d been there.
