Taylor Swift is still not content with ruining the music world (I kid! I love you, TSwift!) and has decided to further widen her repertoire to television, where she’ll be joining sister in whimsy Zooey Deschanel over on New Girl during the show’s upcoming season finale.

From Entertainment Weekly:

Taylor Swift is guest-starring in the May 14 episode of the Fox comedy, EW has learned. The country pop star will play a character named Elaine, who is an “important guest” at the wedding of Cece (Hannah Simone) and Shivrang (Satya Bhabha).

The singer-songwriter and  New Girl fan has been name-checked multiple times on the show this season: In one episode, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) sent Cece a text in which he said he was going through a “Taylor Swift-like range of emotions,” while in another, Nick (Jake Johnson) tried to cheer up a heartbroken Jess (Zooey Deschanel) with unfortunate dance moves while she moaned, “I just wanted to listen to Taylor Swift alone,” and “22? played in the background.

I mean, I know Taylor was in Valentine’s Day and did that whole CSI thing, but I feel like New Girl is the perfect vehicle for her particular brand of la-di-da, pixie joie de vivre, or whatever the hell it is. I haven’t watched New Girl since towards the end of the first season because I’m terrible on watching TV when it’s not something I can binge through entire seasons on, but I will get to it eventually.
