Maybe you heard that Taylor Swift was on Martha’s Vineyard serving as a bridesmaid at the wedding of her BFF Abigail Anderson?

What you didn’t hear was her funny and profane toast to the bride and her husband, Matt Lucier. To be honest, we didn’t either, but a snippet of Swift’s speech has leaked online and it seems she told an intimate story about the amorous couple.

“She’s running after him, there’s falling, there’s stumbling,” Swift says, referring to Anderson. “They make it to the bathroom and I can hear sounds that I can never unhear . . . and then there’s silence.”


In the clip of the speech, Anderson and Lucier can be seen laughing, so no harm no foul. The bride, by the way, is a longtime friend of Swift’s who’s immortalized in the song “Fifteen” with the lyric: “And Abigail gave everything she had/ To a boy who changed his mind.”

The wedding, at the Old Whaling Church in Edgartown, came just days after Swift’s new single, “Look What You Made Me Do,” dropped to mixed reviews.
