No, we’re not talking about the Hanson version, for cripes’ sake! Django Unchained bad guy Samuel L. Jackson, who’s been known of late for his cinematically expletive takes on children’s books (Go The F--- To Sleep) and political ads (“Wake The F--- Up”), took it upon himself to give Swift’s song a bit of grit when he stopped by UK radio station Capital FM. Jackson apparently was inspired when a listener called in and asked him to give a message to her boyfriend (take that, dude).
Don’t worry, no F-bombs are dropped here. Jackson does, however, lean on the PG-13 side with the interpolation “You go talk to your dumbass friends”…and yes, something does get bleeped out.
Oh Taylor--cover your ears! Or, maybe not: The singer approved heartily of the cover, tweeting an enthusiastic "YES" in response to it. (For what it's worth, she also tweeted favorably last week about Walk Off The Earth's collaborative a cappella cover of "I Knew You Were Trouble.")
