Carly Simon joins Taylor Swift for 'You're So Vain'

RollingStone.com

Taylor Swift treated fans to a special surprise guest on Saturday night during her Red Tour stop in Foxborough, Massachusetts, bringing Carly Simon out to join her in singing Simon's 1972 hit "You're So Vain."

Find: Swift a victim of online prank?

"Before I bring out my special guest, I have this question that I've always, always had," Swift told the Gillette Stadium audience while introducing the famously speculated-upon song. "I think a lot of you have probably had this question too, always wondered what the answer is. Who is this song, 'You're So Vain' by Carly Simon, written about?" (Guesses have ranged from David Geffen to Cat Stevens and Warren Beatty.)

After the show, Swift's excitement bubbled over onto Twitter. "Got to sing 'You're So Vain' with Carly Simon at Gillette Stadium tonight!!!!!" she wrote. "Unreal. I could not possibly look up to her more."

In my youth i idolized Carly - the consummate story teller, songs of love and loss, and insights on life in general. Taylor is a very talented singer, but that song belongs to Carly.  I think it is disrepectful of TS to prance all over the stage and make "cute" little faces. Thank you Carly for over 40 (gasp) years of music!

Why do all the real singer-celebs encourage the likes of Taylor Swift? It's like someone telling them all to play nice, when in reality it pisses them off to condone her crappy music and no-talent voice.

 

Talent got real singers popularity and fame, marketing and Daddy's money got TS hers. Same goes for most "current" music...all gimmick, costumes and autotune...no chops!

Taylor could take a cue or fifty from Carly.  Many have speculated about who the target of "You're So Vain" is.  In contrast, you know the target of every bloody song Taylor composes. 

 

Every bloody relationship!
