Taylor Swift Ends Week of ’90s Nostalgia with Lisa Kudrow ‘Smelly Cat’ Duet


Born in 1989, as her latest album’s title attests, Taylor Swift was a small child for most of the 1990s. But during her five-night run at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the singer brought out a treasure trove of special guests who hail from that decade, culminating with Lisa Kudrow, in character as Phoebe Buffay from Friends, to sing her one and only hit, “Smelly Cat.”

Earlier in the week, Swift welcomed Alanis Morrisette for a collaboration on “You Oughta Know” and The Dixie Chicks’ Natalie Maines for “Goodbye Earl” (which technically came out in the year 2000, but still.)

If that wasn’t enough, the week also included appearances from such 90s heavyweights as Mary J. Blige, Beck, Justin Timberlake and more:

I have no way to deal with this. Justin Timberlake is the BEST.
