Taylor Swift isn’t letting that ongoing feud with Kanye West get her down.

The ‘Bad Blood’ singer looked like she didn’t have a care in the world on Saturday night, when she was captured having fun with partygoers at a joint birthday bash for bestie Karlie Kloss and oil heir Mike Hess in the Hamptons.

In Snapchat videos shared by onlookers at the event, Taylor can be seen jumping on stage for an impromptu duet with rapper Nelly to his hit ‘Dilemma’, dressed in a black ruffled crop top with a matching skirt and white sneakers.

At one point, the 26-year-old also strutted over to an unidentified man on the stage and gave him a quick kiss on the cheek as the crowd cheered wildly.

While Taylor and Karlie partied the night away, joined by celebrity guests including Heidi Klum and Tobey Maguire’s wife, jewellery designer Jennifer Meyer, an insider told E! that Taylor’s actor beau Tom Hiddleston was not at the event.

Taylor cosied up to an unidentified man at the party in a video captured on Snapchat.

“Taylor was in an amazing mood, and super fun all night,” the source told E! of the birthday party.

“She danced her ass off. At first she didn’t want to perform but then Nelly asked her. Everyone was super into it, the crowd loved it.”

Of course, Taylor’s willingness to jump in on a dance-off is well-documented. Before she and Tom went public with their relationship in June, the pair’s dance battle at the 2016 Met Gala went viral when it hit the internet.

Meanwhile, Calvin himself awkwardly dodged a joke about his famous ex-girlfriend while appearing at the 50th Anniversary Gala at Caesar’s Palace in Vegas over the weekend.

“That’s a nice suit. Who’s your tailor?” host Howie Mandel joked, in a reference to Taylor, as Calvin joined him on stage to accept the ‘Icon’ award at the gala.

“I already dealt with that. You had that one ready,” Calvin responded, as the crowd erupted into laughter.

Talk about awkward!
