Everyone’s favorite street interviewer, Billy Eichner, gave us quite the laugh on ‘Conan!’ The huge T-Swift fan performed a musical treat just for her — watch it here.
Comedian Billy Eichner, 36, showed his love for all things Taylor Swift, during Conan on Wednesday, Dec. 3. He credits his musical stylings to the beautiful pop singer and wrote “Glitter and Ribs” just for her! Trust us, you’ll want to hear this.
Billy Eichner Disses Taylor Swift
Move over Taylor, there just may be a new American sweetheart in town who understands the female emotions.
Funny man, Billy Eichner won our hearts during his Conan appearance on Dec. 3. The “Billy on the street” host admitted that without Taylor, no one would know what to do when your “boyfriend doesn’t text you back.”
“There are so many disturbing, upsetting things happening in our world right now in our country, internationally, but Taylor Swift is writing about the most important topic, which is what happens when your boyfriend doesn’t text you back?” Billy joked to Conan. “And I think that’s so essential, Conan.”
He has a valid point.
With little persuasion, Billy took to the stage to perform “Glitter and Ribs,” a song he wrote from Taylor’s perspective. Right from the start, he hooked us, “With burgers on the grill and sparkles on my eyes… He served me a fib with a side of lies.” Classic T-Swift!
Billy Truly Gets The Female Brain
At one point we actually thought he was talking directly to us, “You can’t tell me I wasn’t feeling the feelings I felt.” So powerful! It’s as if he is singing right from Taylor’s shoes.
But the line that really had us laughing was when he sang, “And looking back I should of known that I’d be fine, because I was only 16… and you were 49.”
We truly hope Taylor has witnessed this epic performance and takes Billy up on his offer to sing his song.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers, could you see Taylor Swift singing “Glitter and Ribs”? Let us know.
