Taylor Swift and Avril Lavigne performed a duet of in her live 1989 concert. Video and photos which you can see here are going viral, as not only was the performance amazing, but the coziness of the two pop music superstars on stage squashed the feud rumors.
Yes, another ‘1989’ concert night and another surprise memorable moment that lives on in social media! Taylor Swift is a master at this already, and only getting better. What other music artist has brought out so many high caliber music artists, celebrities and public figures? Yes, exactly. Taylor Swift is in a class by herself.
This time, in San Diego at Petco Park on a Saturday night, as it came time to introduce her illustrious surprise guest, Swift said of her, “She’s one of my favorite artists, and we’ve been texting all week. Today, I got to meet here. Please make some noise. Avril Lavigne is here!”
Yes. “texting all week” making sure the rumor mongers heard that one. It was seemingly the final word to squash the alleged feud between the stars, and we do mean alleged. Like more than a few such feuds, it all began with interpretations and misinterpretations after Swift herself “liked” a fan’s post on Tumblr which was lavish with praise as to how she treats her fans and drew an unfavorable comparison with her Lavigne treated her fans. Well, this led Lavigne to Tweet, “Comparison is judging and judging a person does not define who they are it defines who you are. We all Love our fans.”
And with that bit of on stage editorializing the two singers performed Lavigne’s 2002 smash hit ‘Complicated.’ It was a trip down the fairly recent memory lane of the early ’00s, those days when even MySpace didn’t exist let alone YouTube or Instagram. But thankfully now, in the 2010s, we can relive those moments a gazillion times in a gazillion ways.
And naturally the stars themselves weigh in. Taylor Swift Tweeted, “So incredible sharing the stage with @AvrilLavigne! ‘Complicated’ is such a brilliant pop song and I just love her.’ And for her part, Lavigne, took to Instagram in a caption which you can see below, “Such a Pleasure to perform “Complicated” tonight with @taylorswift on her #1989 world tour! She ROCKS.’
