As you’ve probably noticed, Taylor Swift is one of the most popular stars on the face of the planet. She’s basically the world’s foremost collector of fabulous female friends, constantly picking up people and adding them to her ever-growing posse (some of whom we can’t wait to see in her upcoming “Bad Blood” music video!).
But there’s one starlet who apparently got shunned from the esteemed Swift Squad — and we have some concerns about it. The woman in question is Elizabeth Olsen, who recently opened up during an appearance on “The Late Late Show With James Corden” about her awkward meeting with Taylor, one that left her “lying on the cold hard ground” (figuratively speaking, of course).
Elizabeth said Taylor approached her at a mutual friend’s birthday party, and she understandably freaked out a little (as one would; we’re sure Tay is used to people losing their ability to speak in her presence). Anyway, Elizabeth told Corden, “I really love her, and earlier in my ballet class, I was doing a dance sequence to her music… She was asking me which song it was and I couldn’t remember the song title. And I wasn’t gonna sing it for her.”
That’s when things got a bit awkward, Elizabeth said. “I just talked at her for like a long time,” she continued. “I think I blew it because we didn’t exchange phone numbers or anything… I’m still nervous thinking about it now.”
In our opinion, this is a devastating blow not only for Elizabeth, but for Taylor as well. After all, we think Elizabeth seems like an ideal member of the Swift Squad, and Tay has plenty of reasons to make this happen ASAP. Here’s why:

From Lorde to Karlie Kloss, one thing everyone in Taylor’s crew has in common is their impeccable style. Elizabeth is no exception — she’s constantly wowing us in chic, effortless, and unique ensembles that we’re sure Taylor could use as some fashion inspo of her own.

Piggybacking off the importance of #style, Elizabeth’s older sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley, are fashion designers who could totally hook Tay up with some discounts from The Row. Come to think of it, MK&A should probably just join Tay’s girl club as well. The more the merrier, right?

Elizabeth also told Corden she’s not usually one for going out and clubbing. Taylor has also admitted she’s more of a homebody, so we could totally see them staying in, having a sleepover at Taylor’s apartment, and baking up a storm.

As Elizabeth was describing to Corden, she takes ballet classes to keep in shape for her “Avengers” role. That means she’s active, graceful, and poised, which — HELLO — basically describes T. Swift in a nutshell. We could totally see these two busting out some plies together.

In other words, she’s a multitalented superhuman who — it should be noted — gets to hang out with guys like Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth. We know Taylor’s currently kickin’ it with Calvin Harris, but c’mon… those aren’t bad guys to have in your circle of your friends, Tay.

These two are constantly giving us hair envy with their cute blonde ‘dos, so they should totally be trading notes about their lobs! Lobs for life! Love your lobs!
Bottom line: Please give Elizabeth another chance, Taylor. You two are practically destined to be BFFs.
