Watch: Taylor Swift is more Minnesotan than you

Author:

There are two reasons Taylor Swift is getting extra attention today if you live in or near Minnesota.

First, tickets for her 2015 St. Paul shows (back-to-back Sept. 11-12) went on sale to the general public today, and then she added a third date for September 13, tickets for which go on sale December 12.

Second, someone went into the Internet archives and pulled out a clip of what is reportedly Swift doing a (pretty amusing) "Minnesota soccer mom" impression.

Watch here:

And listen right here:

According to BuzzFeed the clip is from 2009, when Swift – 19 years old at the time – was doing an interview on BBC Radio.

Why the Pennsylvania-born singer decided to do a Minnesota accent for a British audience, we don't know. But it should be enough to earn her at least a recurring role in season two of "Fargo."

What do you think? You betcha that was spot on, or oh geez was it bad?
