It’s safe to say that most of the fans in attendance at the Staples Center in Los Angeles last night were born in the ’90s. So we’re not sure if they really knew what was going on when Taylor Swift — wrapping up a five-night stand at the arena — invited up Lisa Kudrow to sing “Smelly Cat,” the acoustic coffee shop number made famous by Kudrow’s character “Phoebe” in the ’90s TV show Friends.
Swift even intro’d Kudrow as her character, which is pretty cool.
Previous Tay-Tay shows earlier in the week in LA featured guests like Beck, St. Vincent, and Alanis Morissette. But this might be the best one yet; we love it when the 1989 Tour goes full-on ’90s. Even if the teenaged fans in the audience had to ask mom, or dad, or someone, uhhh, a bit older, just WTF was going on. “Smelly Cat”? On National Dog Day, no less?
