Mitch Grassi and Scott Hoying, who form 2/5 of the a capella group Pentatonix and also collaborate together under the name 'Superfruit,' are back with a new mash-up. This time the boys mash-up Taylor Swift's "Blank Space," Nick Jonas' "Jealous," and Ariana Grande's "Break Free" to tell a tale of discovering love, infidelity and ultimately freedom. The mash-up also features Broadway vet Shoshanna Bean (whom you may recall from Wicked).

Regardless, watch the officer get down to Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off," which apparently was everyone's favorite song to dance and make videos with last year, AFTER THE JUMP...

Out Modern Family star and marriage equality advocate Jesse Tyler Ferguson took part in the Trevor Project's TrevorLIVE event in LA and decided that Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" was an appropriate anthem to perform at the event, reminding audience members that even though there are haters in the world that are gonna hate, hate, hate, sometimes you just got to shake it off. Because after all, instead of getting down and out about the liars and the dirty, dirty cheats of the world, you could have been getting down to a sick beat.
Modern Family's Sarah Hyland, who is close with Swift, shared Ferguson's performance on Instagram which quickly gained the seal of approval from Swift herself.

In these troubled times, Billy Eichner looks to Taylor Swift. Appearing on Conan last night (where he's been a regular since his Madonna-themed Super Bowl spot), Eichner confessed that he's a Taylor super fan and how in the midst of all the current national and international crises Swift can remind him that the most important thing in life is getting a text back from a boy. After some faux cajoling, Eichner then presented a live version of his Swiftian song "Glitter and Ribs", which ribs the popular songstresses style while also being a heartfelt homage as well.
Eichner's song actually debuted on the website Funny or Die last summer as a music video in which he did Taylor in drag. But now that Swift has taken over the musical universe with the inescapable hits (and parodies) from her current album 1989, this newer version seemed to work even better along with a very enthusiastic, clapping-along audience. Eichner, whose own star has been rising with a recurring role on Parks & Recreation, will soon be starring in a new comedy series on Hulu called Difficult People, produced by Amy Poehler.
