Taylor Swift collaborates with Def Leppard

Taylor Swift—that’s a thing, right? Your little sister’s favorite Teen Country Music Superstar Who Isn’t Technically Fictional will be collaborating with that band that your mom loved when she still smoked Marlboro Reds and rode around in an IROC-Z with a roadie who became your father. The 19-year-old singer will be performing “Photograph” with Def Leppard for the CMT Crossroads special airing this Nov. 7. Fans of contrived, vaguely creepy forced collaborations won’t have to wait that long though as the video will start airing on CMT and Lisa Frank-themed MySpace pages this Friday.

Maybe it would help to actually listen to a Def Lep song b4 you bash them.

They sounded great and she was perfect doing lead on their songs. They let her lead out the whole way and she did well plus she has the perfect look to work with a group like def lep.


To me she looked like she really got into the music and really enjoyed the experience of performing with Def Leppard. It would appear to myself that the original author of this article had a predetermined stance against the older band. Maybe a lack of self confidence to stand up and appreciate something that the
