Drunk Taylor Swift Singing “You Need to Calm Down” Will Give You Life

Laverne Cox, Hayley Kiyoko, and T-Swift walk into a bar...

Taylor Swift can’t calm down about those 10 MTV Video Music Award nominations.

The “Me!” singer invited a bevy of her besties—including a handful of LGBTQ celebs—to a party in honor of her 10 VMA nods, the bulk of which came from her queer-friendly hit single “You Need to Calm Down.” A large number of guests at the shindig actually appeared in the track’s pastel-hued music video, which dropped back in June.

“Threw a party to celebrate with the people who made the Me! & YNTCD videos with me—and we had so much fun that ’Drunk Taylor’ is trending on Twitter,” the 29-year-old singer wrote on Instagram, champagne emoji and all. “Cheers.”

Attendees at the bash, which took place at Beauty & Essex restaurant in Los Angeles, included Orange Is the New Black alum Laverne Cox, “I Wish” singer Hayley Kiyoko, queer MUA Chester Lockhart, Panic! at the Disco frontman Brendon Urie, and more.

Cox posted about the festivities on Instagram, drunkenly dancing and singing along to “You Need to Calm Down” with T-Swift in an adorable video.

“When your song comes on and you’ve sweat out your cute new ’do,” she wrote, “and it don’t matter cause your song is on.”

Other partygoers shared snippets from their nights, too, including RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 11 contestant A’keria Chanel Davenport.
