- Amanda Seyfried just revamped Taylor Swift's "Mean" to include as many Mean Girls references as possible in the lyrics.
- And yeah, the resulting song is pretty magical!
Sure, Mean Girls came out 15 years ago, but that doesn't mean that we're any less obsessed with the masterpiece of a movie. Also still very into Mean Girls? Amanda Seyfried, who any real fan will know played plastic Karen Smith.
Earlier this week, Amanda made an appearance at the Williamstown Theatre Festival's late night cabaret to sing a rendition of TSwift's "Mean" with Ashley Park, who starred as Gretchen Wieners in the Broadway musical based on the movie. The catch? they gave the classic song a twist, packing in "as many 'Mean Girls' references as possible."
That means the line "Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me" changed to "Some day, I’ll be fetch enough so you can’t hit me," and the line, "All you are is mean and a liar and pathetic" was changed to "All you are is mean and a liar and pathetic and a fugly slut and mean." Amanda also referred to Karen's iconic romance with her first cousin by altering the line "I walk with my head down, Try to block you out 'cause I never impress you" to "I walk with my head down ’cause I kissed my cousin and I’ll never impress you," and Ashley changed the line "You have pointed out my flaws again as if I don't already see them" to "You have pointed out my flaws again when you wrote it in your burn book."
Amanda also sprinkled in some A+ lines from the movie throughout the performance, saying, "You're like, really pretty," "I'm sick," and "Boo, you whore." Basically, it's pretty amazing. Watch the whole performance here:
