The heavenly match — bear with us — was made possible by the folks at Yahoo, who posted a video of the esteemed actor reciting the lyrics to Swift’s “Bad Blood”.
Sir Ian finished his impressive performance with the lyrics to Marc Ronson’s and Bruno Mars’s “Uptown Funk,” stating that he is going to “uptown funk you up.”

It seems that British knights have a bit of a soft spot for Taylor Swift — Patrick Stewart has also been giving her lyrics his unique interpretation this week. The thespian read “Blank Space” on NPR’s “Ask Me Another” show.
Sir Patrick later tweeted: “So @IanMcKellen recited Bad Blood and I did Blank Space on @NPRAskMeAnother. May we join the squad, @taylorswift13?”
Swift wasted no time in replying: “Thanks for reciting my lyrics, @IanMcKellen and @SirPatStew! You’ve made my day. You two are ULTIMATE Squad Goals”.
