We wish we knew!


What we’d give to have witnessed this star-studded wedding roast…


According to Page Six, Taylor Swift gave a 15 minute toast-turned-roast at Margaret Qualley and Jack Antonoff’s wedding last weekend. Given Swift’s penchant for cleverly spinning grudges into lyrical gold, we bet it was an absolute blast.


No one’s given reporters the full tea yet, but insiders have shared one funny moment from Swift’s speech…


Pop icon Swift apparently teased fellow musician Jack Antonoff for never thanking her during his numerous award acceptance speeches, despite the fact that she often mentions him in her own (so said so-called wedding ‘spies’ to Page Six). 


For those not in the know, Swift and Antonoff are close friends and have collaborated on multiple musical projects in the past decade, including several tracks on 1989, Folklore, and all of 2022’s Midnights.

Actor Margaret Qualley is well known for her performances in 2013’s Palo Alto, HBO’s popular series The Leftovers, and 2021’s hit mini series Maid. She and now-husband (and longtime Swiftie) Jack Antonoff began dating publicly in August of 2021 (via People). Antonoff’s band, Bleachers, and his work as a producer for some of pop’s biggest names, are legendary. 


Also in attendance, according to Page Six, were Lana Del Rey, the bride and groom’s parents (Andie MacDowell, Paul Qualley, Rick Antonoff, and Shira Antonoff), Cara Delevingne, Zoë Kravitz, and Channing Tatum. Andy Snyder, a friend of the couple, served as wedding officiant.
