Taylor Swift and Cats

Taylor Swift's Instagram announcement that Benjamin Button has joined the family.

Megastar ailurophile Taylor Swift has revealed that she went to 'cat school' for her role as Bombalurina in the soon-to-be-released Cats film.

The film, which also stars stars Idris Elba, James Corden, Rebel Wilson and Dame Judi Dench, is an adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's iconic stage show.

There were on-set cat classes to teach the actors how to act like felines.

Singer Taylor loves cats and now has three. Benjamin Button recently joined Meredith and Olivia in the Swift household. She made the announcement "and then there were three" on Instagram.

She told TIME's Three Things That Have Influenced Me series: 'I have cats, I'm obsessed with them. They're just a real joy to live with.

'And I love my cats so much that when a role came up in a movie called Cats, I just thought like I've gotta do this. Like this is my calling in life, to do this for the ladies.

'And so I went to cat school which they have on set, readily available for us and learned how to be as much like a cat as I possibly could and yeah cats are just really cool.'

Olivia is named after Law and Order character Olivia Benson, played by Mariska Hargitay, and Meredith is after Meredith Grey, the Grey's Anatomy character  played by Ellen Pompeo.

Taylor has recently released a new song called ME! The beginning of the video features Taylor arguing in French with song collaborator Brendan Urie of Panic At The Disco.

As Taylor storms out of the room, she yells 'not in front of our daughters' while the camera pans to her two cats Meredith and Olivia sitting on the couch! See the video below:

  1. Not all "daughters" anymore, unless Benjamin has become a girl's name when I wasn't looking.

  2. I had no idea a Cats movie was coming out. EXCELLENT!

  3. I hope the movie is as good as the Broadway show was.

  4. I have a DVD of Cats the show and also saw it at a local theatre - it was excellent. Will look forward to the movie.

  5. Brendan Urie is awesome! Fun post, my dear.

  6. I thought that film came out a while ago. Is it released later in your country?
