Taylor Swift Shut It Down Last Night (Really)

Taylor Swift may be singing odes to New York City, but she's still got mad love for Los Angeles (L.A. drivers, on the other hand, not so much). Last night, the pop star shut down Hollywood Boulevard to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. Traffic was stopped, the crowd outside went wild, and patrons at the Hard Rock Cafe no doubt felt totally justified in choosing such a touristy restaurant for dinner.
Some 15,000 fans came out to watch Swift perform "Shake It Off" in a black bustier and matching trousers. The 24 year-old also sang "Out of the Woods" live for the first time. We guess "Welcome to New York" would have been a tad inappropriate for the West Coast crowd.

"I honestly, in my life, never thought that I would see Hollywood Boulevard filled with people as far as I can see, just to see us play a few songs," Swift told Kimmel of the experience.
Feel free to swing by NYC, Tay. Just maybe not during rush hour, okay?
