Taylor Alison Swift looked like an absolute angel last night at the TIME 100 Gala, where she was honored as one of the world's Most Influential people.
But the snake queen [butterfly queen?] didn't just attend -- she also performed a breathtaking acoustic set featuring ~*iCoNiC t-SwiFt BoPs*~ such as Style, Delicate, Love Story & Shake It Off.
"I look at songwriting as protective armor, which is weird -- because you think of writing about your life as vulnerability," Taylor told the crowd in-between songs. "I use it as a way of justifying things. I like to honor the good times and process the bad times when I write." [A hint at what's to come on 4.26?]
