Taylor Swift is returning to “The Voice” as a mega mentor in the upcoming 17th season of the NBC singing competition series.
The “Blank Space” singer will offer advice to each team of artists as they prepare for the knockout rounds in the show.
Coaches John Legend and Blake Shelton took to Instagram to share a promotional video with the news. In it, the singers act as if they have no clue who the pop-star mentor will be.
“I heard we have a mega mentor? I heard it’s supposed to be one of the most successful people in music,” Legend says before Swift nonchalantly walks out of the trailer behind them as her latest chart-topping single “Me!” featuring Brenden Urie begins playing.
Kellyanne Conway trolled Taylor Swift with a rendition of a line from the pop singer’s latest hit, “You Need To Calm Down.”
“I actually like the new Taylor Swift song that is You Need to Calm Down,” she said. “I can sing it for you. Where she says, ‘If you say it on the street, that’s a knock out, if you put it in a tweet, that’s a cop-out.’ I love that. That’s basically Washington in a nutshell. But she’s welcome to her opinion.”

Pop megastar and left-wing activist Taylor Swift took a not-so-subtle shot at President Donald Trump’s administration on Monday night from the stage of the 36th annual MTV Video Music Awards.
“I just want to say that this is a fan-voted award. So, I first want to say thank you to the fans because in this video, several points were made, so you voting for this video means that you want a world where we’re all treated equally,” “Regardless of who we are, regardless of how we identify, at the end of this video there was a petition — and there still is a petition for the Equality Act, which basically just says we all deserve equal rights under the law,”
“And, I want to thank everyone who signed that petition because it now has half-a-million signatures, which is five times the amount that it would need to warrant a response from the White House,” said Swift, gesturing toward her watch.
Pop superstar Taylor Swift has admitted she is “very remorseful” about her refusal to get involved in the 2016 presidential election, but has pledged to “do everything I can for 2020” to promote progressive candidates and public policy.
She said her negative public image at the time made her feel “just useless. And maybe even like a hindrance”, adding that she felt “really remorseful for not saying anything”. She confirmed that she would otherwise have endorsed Hillary Clinton for president.
The Guardian met Swift as Tennessee lawmakers were voting to impose a near-total ban on abortion in the state. “Obviously, I’m pro-choice,” Swift said on the matter. “I just can’t believe this is happening.” She pledged to “do everything I can for 2020”.Source: Taylor Swift: Trump thinks his presidency is an autocracy
