The Weeknd Says Drunk Taylor Swift Wouldn’t Quit Stroking His Dreadlocks

Of all the many incarnations of Taylor Swift – #squad leader, star of her generation, rumoured Mean GirlDrunk Taylor Swift is the one we want to befriend, because you just *know* she’s gonna be a good time.
Exhibit A:
The Weeknd has given a rare insight into the glorious, too-oft-hidden white girl wasted side to T-Swift in the accompanying interview to his Rolling Stone cover which, ICYMI, is EPICCCCCC:

i’m still shaking… proudest moment of my career.

In it, the ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ singer, real name Abel Tesfaye, shares the story of his first-ever encounter with TayTay – who pulled him up on stage during her 1989 World Tour starathon – at a Grammys party thrown by Sam Smith.
The Weeknd wasn’t drinking, but she *clearly* was because things took a turn for the weird and wholly uncomfortable when the stroking of his magnificent dreadlocks started.

“The whole time she was talking she was kind of, like, petting my hair? I think she was just drawn to it — she must have been a little gone off a few drinks,” he recalls. “And of course I’m not going to be like, ‘Hey, can you stop?’ I mean, it felt good! But when she started petting my hair, that’s when I was like, ‘I definitely need a drink.’” 

Apart from driving him towards a severe hangover, Swift also confessed she’s a huge fangirl of The Weeknd’s stuff.
“She actually schooled me on my own shit,” he said. “She was like, ‘I’ve been listening to ‘The Morning’ [from ‘House Of Balloons’] for years – it’s one of my favorite songs ever!’ I mean, she might have just Googled it. But she seemed genuine.”
Did she, Abel? DID SHE?
