This weekend, two Gawker staff writers who shall go unnamed but who look remarkably like they could be sisters of Cara Delevingne and St. Vincent will attend different Taylor Swift concerts in New York, one on Friday night and one on Saturday night.

It is well documented that Taylor Swift has “lots of friends” that she does not pay to bring out on stage with her during her shows, and that with every city the ante is upped and the special guests become even more special. This weekend, Swift’s shows at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey will surely be filled with New York’s finest, a veritable who’s who of Swift’s east coast “real New Yawker” squad. They are here to party and they love nothing more than Taylor Swift and bialys and Central Park. Will any of these people be her special guests, do we think?
