The ‘Welcome Home Nikki Glaser?’ star gushed about the release of the 32-year old singer’s fifth studio album ‘1989’ in 2014 made her feel “so seen” as it debuted as she “was going through a breakup” at the same time.
The 37-year-old stand up comedian told E! News: “I was going through a breakup with this ex boyfriend when 1989 was released and I think that album coinciding with my breakup, I just had never felt so seen. I just suddenly had this artist who was writing songs for every step of my life. I’ve never been so instantly obsessed with someone and felt like I was so emotionally connected to someone. “
Nikki admitted that the pair have “similar” creative approaches – being honest about “relationships” on stage – and how she “related” to the “incredible” Grammy winner.
She said: “It doesn’t hurt that she’s a tall, blonde girl and we kind of look similar. Also, I kind of saw myself in her sense that I’m a comedian who takes to the stage and talks about men who have hurt me and my relationships and my love life. Sometimes I get people being like, ‘Oh, don’t date Nikki, she’ll talk about you.’ I related to Taylor in that way and she’s just an incredible artist. “
The funny lady shared that ‘All Too Well’ if her favorite song by Taylor but that she also had a soft spot for ‘Delicate’, which she labeled “sexy”.
Nikki said: “My favorite is ‘All Too Well’ for sure, but if we’re gonna go besides ‘All Too Well,’ which is pretty much every Swiftie’s favorite song, I will say ‘Delicate’ is the one that I was like oh this is a new sound from her. I love that song, it’s so sexy. It felt like a very grown up mature Taylor Swift to me. “
