Did Taylor Swift just get schooled by Ellen Degeneres? In a hilarious new video, the talk show host goes backstage at Tay’s 1989 Tour to give the singer a much-need lesson in the art of becoming an international pop star. The result? Pure comedy!
Taylor Swift, 25, may be a Grammy-award winning artist, but as this hilarious new video proves, she still has a lot to learn about the art of becoming an international pop star — and Ellen DeGeneres, 57, is just the one to teach her! Prior to hitting the stage at Tay’s 1989 Tour stop in Los Angeles, the talk show host paid a visit to her bestie backstage where she proceeded to give Taylor an epic lesson in how to succeed as a pop superstar (because obviously, that’s exactly what Taylor needs).

In the behind-the-scenes video, Ellen can be seen visiting Taylor backstage before the show to get the scoop on what she’ll be doing on stage that evening. Being the quick-witted comedian that she is though, it doesn’t take long before Ellen starts instructing Taylor on how to run her own show, including how to best introduce a surprise guest and how to properly walk down the runway.
Clearly, Ellen’s lessons rubbed off on Taylor, as that night’s show in LA proved to be one of her best! In addition to hitting all the right notes, Tay also totally surprised her guests when she invited Ellen to join her on stage for her hit “Style.” Ellen of course, didn’t waste the opportunity to show off her funny side, taking to the runway in a full body suit version of one of Taylor’s many glittery costumes and a tutu.
Taylor, who has been snapped in her version of the costume plenty of times since her tour started, reacted to the LOL-worthy look on Twitter, saying “When
@TheEllenShow walks out in a more sparkly outfit than yours and a tutu.”

The behind-the-scenes video is just the latest of clips and interviews to premiere during The Ellen Show‘s first week back on air. Ellen also recently say down with Caitlyn Jenner, 60, for a candid interview in which they discussed the reality star’s idea of having a family now, her views on marriage in general, and yes, her relationship with Candis Cayne, who was actually backstage at the time! Needless to say, Ellen’s lucky season 13 is off to a pretty star-studded start!
