Taylor Swift has been called out by critics for her seemingly confused reaction after Trevor Noah instructed his fans to lower the price of eggs, but it’s his fans who seem to have the final say.
The “Anti-Hero” singer attended the 64th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, Feb. 5, where she won Best Music Video for “All Too Well: The Short Film.”
Swift appeared to be having a blast at the awards show, from dancing at the opening performance of Bad Bunny to catching up with her former fling, Harry Styles. However, there was a moment during the Grammys when her fans and critics spoke online.
One of the night’s most uncomfortable moments happened when Grammys host Trevor Noah gave a subtle nod to the Ticketmaster fiasco, which saw Swifties – the nickname for Taylor Swift fans – file a lawsuit accusing Ticketmaster of “intentionally and deliberately” allowing scalpers and bots. to buy concert tickets.
“You have the best fans in the world,” Noah told Swift. “What they’ve done with Ticketmaster…is amazing. I’m just wondering once they’re done with this, can you get them to handle the egg price? »
“There’s really nothing they can’t accomplish,” Swift said into the microphone in response to the host’s joke. “They’ll get on with it, just let them know what you need.”
Trevor added: “Swifties: Egg prices, down.”
After her response, Swift turned to the camera and appeared to roll her eyes, before shaking her head and taking a sip of her drink. The singer’s reaction amused some fans, while others interpreted her deadpan expression as confused. Then the critics seemed to think they had a reason.
“I mean, it’s an egg, Trevor. How much could it cost, 10 dollars? read a tweet, which referenced a famous scene from Development stopped.
“This woman doesn’t know the price of anything sir for real,” another person tweeted.
“Does she even know the price of eggs?” someone else asked.
A third user wrote: “Hahahahahaha. It was hilarious. Too bad Taylor was oblivious to what he was talking about.
However, it looks like Swifties have indeed got down to business, after it was revealed earlier this week that the price of eggs had indeed plummeted. Egg prices have more than doubled over the past year due to a lingering outbreak of bird flu, combined with soaring feed, fuel and labor costs. In fact, the national average price for a dozen eggs hit $3.59 in November, up from $1.72 a year earlier, according to the latest government data.
Now reports show wholesale egg prices have fallen more than 50% since peaking in December 2022, hitting $2.61 just a day after the Grammy Awards.
Following the news, Swifties replied, “It’s us, hi. We are the answer, it’s us.
It wasn’t Swift’s only viral moment at the 2023 Grammys. Her reaction to Dr. Jill Biden’s appearance at the awards show also garnered social media attention and scrutiny after some claimed the singer looked “unhappy” to see the first lady.
When Biden took the stage to present two major awards — Best Song for Social Change and Song of the Year — Swift stood and clapped for the first lady alongside the rest of the audience. She then looked down at the floor with what some claimed was an unimpressed look.
Many viewers slammed the ‘Lavender Haze’ singer for appearing disappointed, with one person tweeting, ‘Does Taylor Swift have a personal issue with Jill Biden? Why did she look like this when FLOTUS came out?
Others, however, defended Swift, with many fans noting that she voiced support for President Joe Biden, while others said she may have been nervous about her potential award as she was up for song of the year.
