The hit TV show New Girl is literally bringing in a new girl for their season finale
on Tuesday (May 14) night — Taylor Swift. All we know so far about
the episode — called “Elaine’s Big Day” with Swift playing a character named Elaine — is that it takes place at Cece and
Shivrang’s wedding. That’s not much to go on. One possibility could be that Swift plays an outsider because while all the
women at the wedding are in traditional Indian saris, Swift is just wearing a plain peach lace dress. Then again, she could
be Shivrang’s long-lost sister for all I know.
The show’s creator did share
this with E!: “Our set is a fun set to come to, but it’s also a little bit crazy because there’s a lot of improv and people
shouting out extra jokes and she completely held her own,” Liz Meriweather said, “and did such a great job with it.”
Meriweather told EW.com that she is a big Swift
fan herself. “I was fully geeking out about meeting [Taylor]. I didn’t go to meet her right away because I kind of had to
compose myself. There’s a 14-year-old girl inside of me,” Meriweather admitted.
