Taylor Swift To Be A Dr. Seuss CharacterS

Sometimes your childhood memories have a beating heart, throbbing, full of joy and love. And sometimes those memories live snuggled deep inside you, safe and warm, protected. But sometimes, quite suddenly, one of those memories will be pierced with a sharp knife of terrible information, flaying open that soft organ, exposing the tender flesh and killing the goddamn thing. Today is that day, friends: Taylor Swift has joined the cast of the CGI-animated movie The Lorax. You may be thinking, there are no females, or even country singers in The Lorax! Just a boy, some Bar-ba-Loots, a flock of Swomee Swans, the Lorax and the Once-Ler. Yeah, I know. Now it will have Zac Efron, Danny DeVito and the Swift. Sorry. (ETA: It is now a love story, with Swift as the girl of the little boy's dreams. Sob.) [The Hollywood Reporter] (Want to watch the original film? Click here.)
