Pop star Taylor Swift’s love life, her squeaky-clean image and her penchant for writing “revenge songs” about ex-boyfriends, has become the butt of jokes in a Family Guy episode. In the new episode of the animated series’ 15th season that was broadcast on Saturday, titled “Chris Has Got a Date, Date, Date, Date, Date” – a pun on Swift’s “Shake It Off” hit – the Griffins’ eldest son Chris gets a date with the 26-year-old pop star when he asks her to the school prom.
But even though they have a nice time, Chris wakes up the next day to find that Swift has written one of her by-now trademark “moving on” songs about him, called “The Boy In the Giant Tux”. Family Guy creator Seth Macfarlane didn’t hold anything back, as evidenced by what the animated Swift says when Chris confronts her and asks why she did it. “I’m sorry, I always do this,” she says.
“I ruin relationships with nice guys and John Mayer just so I can write songs about heartbreak and moving on.” In the end, Swift apologises and writes a nice song about Chris, but is then bottled off stage when she performs it live. This episode of Family Guy will premiere on Star World Premiere HD.
