Now that we’ve all had a day to discuss enough of Harry Styles’ album of the year win at Sunday night’s Grammys, it’s time for us to turn our attention to everything that happened during the ceremony.
There was the awkward moment when Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were apparently caught fighting on camera, Adele and The Rock became instant BFFs and Lizzo made her red carpet debut with her new boyfriend, Myke Wright.
Then there were host Trevor Noah’s jokes throughout the show, which included references to Prince Harry’s “frozen penis” and the recent talk that M&M’s had gotten “too sexy”.
He also spent time having one-on-one conversations with A-list attendees seated in the crowd, but not all of his punchlines landed.
And one of the most uncomfortable moments to go viral since Sunday’s ceremony was Trevor’s conversation with Taylor Swift – where she seemed to have no idea what he was talking about.
Taylor looked awkward and remained impassive as the host reminisced about her fans, who recently made headlines for suing Ticketmaster after the singer’s messy presale of the upcoming Eras tour.
“I just wonder once they’re done with this, can you get them to manage the price of the eggs?” Trevor asked Taylor, which obviously refers to the recent spike in egg prices across America.
(For context, the cost has risen from around $2 to $7 per dozen in recent weeks, and Forbes previously explained, “The main reason egg prices remain high is the spread of a bird flu that started in early 2022.”)
But Taylor just stared blankly at Trevor, before replying, “There’s really nothing they can’t accomplish.” They’ll get on with it, just tell them what you need.
“Swifties: Egg prices down! You’re chasing those chickens,” Trevor told the camera as Taylor stared at the camera and made a confused face while shaking her head, suggesting she was taken aback by what he said.
At first, people watching at home were also surprised by this reaction, but soon realized that there was an obvious reason why the multi-millionaire didn’t get Trevor’s joke.
“I love her but I know she’s so out of touch she didn’t get the egg thing at all,” one fan commented on a TikTok of the moment.
Someone else added: ‘with peace and love, taylor doesn’t know how much the eggs cost.’ Someone else wrote: “No for real she didn’t even understand what he was talking about bro 😂😂😂”
Another referred to a famous Development stopped scene as they tweeted, “I mean, it’s an egg, Trevor. How much could it cost, 10 dollars?
“Ugh it was so hunger games 😵💫,” one person said of the obvious wealth divide, while it was also pointed out that Taylor was far from the only Grammys entrant. who wouldn’t be aware of something as basic as the price of eggs.
Some have also speculated that Taylor pointedly made a face at the camera to let her fans know that the mention of the “eggs” was not a pre-planned “easter egg” to find.
If you’re a total Taylor Swift newbie, the star is famous for sneaking hidden clues into her music, social media posts, and public appearances so her fans can map out her plans for the future.
“I think his reaction was a mix of ‘what are you talking about, what’s going on with egg prices’ and like ‘no guys this is NOT an easter egg, dismiss That! ‘” Said a Swiftie.
Another agreed: “The look of ‘it’s not an Easter egg! lmao 😂”
Meanwhile, others simply heard the call to action and were ready to start fighting, with one TikTok user concluding, “I mean honestly, we could probably lower the price of eggs.”
And eggs weren’t the only “regular people” joke that was thrown over Taylor’s head on Sunday, with the star also looking confused when Trevor mentioned Southwest Airlines.
The low-cost carrier recently made headlines for canceling 16,700 flights over the holiday season.
Trevor said in his opening monologue that Taylor had “sold more albums than any other human being on the planet this year. That’s right. More than anyone. The only music we listen to more than Taylor’s music was Southwest Airlines’ music on hold.
But instead of laughing at the joke, Taylor – who apparently wore $3 million worth of jewelry to the Grammys – looked confused and remained silent.
“taylor swift being completely unaware of what trevor noah’s overpriced egg jokes and southwestern airline customer service hotlines mean because inflation and public transportation are completely lost for her,” one viewer tweeted.
“no but trevor noah jokes about the poor around taymoney…..she doesn’t know anything about the southwest or eggs omg 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭” another echoed.
And it wasn’t long before last year’s expose that Taylor is the celebrity with the worst CO2 emissions from private jets – with an average flight time of just 80 minutes – was brought up.
“Good, like she’s not about to take a private jet to the after party down the street,” one person joked.
Someone else observed, “I love how the Southwest and egg jokes went over Taylor Swift’s head. Miss private jet was so confused.
“How does Trevor tell Taylor the Southwest Airlines joke expect her to get it smh she hops on her private jet for her morning coffee everyday,” someone tweeted. other.
And in the meantime, we better get on with fixing those egg prices.
