The song, performed (predictably) as Swift's opening monologue on the late-night comedy show, is actually a damn catchy one, and in it the pop star finally publicly addresses the Kanye-MTV VMAs snafu, in essence, with a "whatever can be said has been said." Meanwhile, as you can see in the clip, she's got a good sense of humor about the incident, though enlists the help of the SNL cast as her bodyguards should West bum-rush the stage again.
She also tackles two other tabloid topics of interest, no longer inside jokes to her teenaged superfans. To Joe Jonas, who apparently broke up with her over the phone she gives a hardy "ha ha ha." As for the continued rumors about her dating a certain popular "Twilight Saga: New Moon" werewolf, Swift sang, "I'm not going to comment on that in my monologue," though all but confirming the romance by blowing a kiss and mouthing "Hi Taylor."
Swift is an artist on Big Machine records, while the lyrics to her "Monologue" was undoubtedly written in part by the staff at "SNL." The melody and guitar lines sound like something she'd put together, so who knows what parties could call dibs on the song. That being said, many a fan would love to download this to their iPods, so can somebody please jump on that?
We also predict some "Monologue" parodies and copycats on the YouTube, so keep your eyes peeled.
