WASHINGTON — Taylor Swift took a break from work in New York City to attend the premiere of “I Saw You Last” at the National Geographic Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History on Tuesday night.
To promote her new video, which stars Blake Lively, the 26-year-old pop star had rehearsals with the actor, according to her Instagram account, while Swift waxed poetic about the importance of nature. “If you care about so many things but only one of them is growing old,” she wrote. “Puzzling and terrified of that last critical chapter.”
Lively, 30, plays Swift’s mother in the song. She recently appeared in “mother!” with Jennifer Lawrence.
