The Reason Why Taylor Swift Had A Dance-Off With Tom Hiddleston At The MET Gala Is Super Sweet

Leave a comment


The Met Gala is known to be attended by a dazzling array of celebrities, and at this year’s event, an unlikely duo made headlines with an epic dance-off.

Tom Hiddleston, that’s right, LOKI, ended up shaking it off with the queen of the dance floor herself, Taylor Swift. So how did this terrific twosome find themselves cutting loose in New York City? Hiddleston, who admitted to the Press Association that he hadn’t danced for a long time prior to the gala, said he was talked into busting a move by the always persuasive Swift.

“I was [at] a table with Taylor Swift, and The Weeknd was playing, and she said, ‘The thing about these parties is nobody gets up to dance,'” the actor recently told the Press Association. “She, as a musician, was like, ‘We’ve got to dance for The Weeknd.’ So we got up and danced. I didn’t know it was going to ping round the world, but it’s all good.”

But ping round the world it did thanks to Valentino brand ambassador Carlos Souza, who captured the dance-off on camera.

To his credit, Hiddleston, who recently portrayed country-western singer Hank Williams in the biopic I Saw the Light, did a pretty good job of keeping up with pop star. And as for Swift? Well, let’s just say we love the fact that her enthusiasm in supporting her fellow performers isn’t just reserved for awards show.

Now, here’s hoping the duo meet up at another gala again soon. We need a dance-off sequel asap!
