Mean Girls may have originally premiered in 2004, but the movie — and its many quotes and catchphrases — has become a cultural phenomenon in the years since. Who would we as a society be without “On Wednesdays, we wear pink” and “You go, Glen Coco?” It looks like we’re not the only ones whose Mean Girls obsession never waned; one of its stars recently rewrote a Taylor Swift song from the perspective of her movie character, and it’s so (you guessed it!) fetch.
As noted by Entertainment Weekly, Amanda Seyfried recently covered “Mean” at the Williamstown Theater Festival in Massachusetts with a Mean Girls makeover alongside actress Ashley Park, who played Gretchen in the Broadway musical adaptation. The two, wearing pink per Plastic guidelines, rewrote Tay’s song to include “as many Mean Girls references as possible,” and we think they did a pretty great job. Maybe they got some help from noted wordsmith Kevin Gnapoor?
Many of the most iconic Mean Girls lines made the cut in the movie-inspired rewrite, with lyrics like “All you are is mean and a liar and pathetic and a fugly slut and mean” and “You pointed out my flaws again when you wrote it in your burn book.” Of course, “fetch” does have a moment to shine; the two actresses changed the lyrics to say, “Some day, I’ll be fetch enough so you can’t hit me.”
Amanda even snuck in a reference to Karen’s relationship with her cousin (not her first cousin, remember) by singing, “I walk with my head down ’cause I kissed my cousin and I’ll never impress you.” Also sprinkled in during the performance were relentlessly quotable Mean Girls moments like “I’m sick” and “You’re like, really pretty.” You know, the ones you’ve been incorporating into your vocabulary daily since 2004?
Taylor hasn’t responded to this masterful rendition of her 2010 single (yet), but can you imagine how iconic it would be if she rewrote a verse as Regina or Cady and joined in the fun? Ms. Norbury would be proud.
