Recognize anybody in that photo? Notice that the person dressed up as Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley (second from left) looks a little too foxy to be in a Kiss cover band? Your feelings are not irrational, as the person behind the makeup is none other than pop-country megastar Taylor Swift, who joined her band members in a dress-up prank earlier this week. On the final night of her tour with Keith Urban, Swift and her cohorts donned full Kiss regalia and rushed the stage during Urban’s set in Kansas City. Who knew that Swift was such a “Rock and Roll All Nite” enthusiast?
But the story doesn’t end there. As Swift revealed on her Twitter page, none other than Ace Frehley himself contacted her about the prank. “Ace Frehley tweeted me,” she wrote. “Oh. My god.” On his own Twitter, the guitarist wrote to Swift, “Saw your prank on YouTube, you looked great in my outfit. ROCK N ROLL!”
Having wrapped her tour with Keith Urban, Swift is currently enjoying some down time in Nashville (earlier this week, she tweeted about riding a jet ski with Demi Lovato). Next week she’ll cross the ocean for a pair of festival shows in the U.K. before kicking off the latest leg of her North American tour at Madison Square Garden in New York. And of course she’ll be performing at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards on September 13, where she’ll join performers like Jay-Z, Lady Gaga and Green Day. Here’s hoping that her new Twitter pal Frehley will reach out for a possible collaboration. But in the meantime, what other famous rockers should Swift dress up as?
