Taylor Swift may have been ‘flattered’ by ‘Saturday Night Live’s sketch that mocked her and her A-list squad, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t ready to respond to the show’s diss. The question is: will she do it on an upcoming episode? HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE details here!
Saturday Night Live didn’t hold back when they mocked Taylor Swift, 25, and her “Bad Blood” posse during the show’s Oct. 3 episode. But the ball is in Tay’s court now, and a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the pop superstar may be willing to address the diss in an upcoming episode. Get the full details here!

“They are expecting her to do a skit or appear on ‘Weekend Update,’ an insider close to SNL tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “The door is open for her to be a part [of the show] somehow and to do something fun.” Still, while they would love to have her return to the show in some capacity, our source adds that they are not “expecting her to be a host” due to her crazy touring schedule. That being said, we think Taylor might be able to make a little room in her agenda for a surprise appearance. After all, she is a huge fan of the show — she even had the honor of hosting her own episode back in 2009.
For those who haven’t seen it yet, the skit titled “The Squad” features SNL stars Vanessa Bayer and Aidy Bryant as high school BFFs, who end up getting in a car accident only to wake up to find that the entire world has joined Taylor Swift’s gang. As cool as that may sound, the new world has a creepy horror movie sort of vibe to it that just might make you reconsider your #Squadgoals.
Thankfully, Taylor wasn’t all that offended by the show poking fun at her and her infamous gang. In fact, she thought it was downright funny! “Taylor was flattered by the SNL sketch about her. You know you’ve made it when you’re being parodied by the SNL team,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She thought it was really funny, and has already been joking with her ‘Bad Blood’ gal pals about it, who are equally amused.”
If you ask us, this sounds like the perfect opportunity for Taylor and her squad to reunite and take over the SNL stage for another epic VMAs-like stunt — and we are so down for that!
