Is she a Bravo fan? Taylor Swift didn’t just pose with Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice at Coachella. She also attended Vanderpump Rules cast member James Kennedy‘s set at Neon Carnival.

As James, 32, took to the stage at the Southern California music festival, Taylor, 34, was seen dancing to her hit “Cruel Summer” in the VIP section with boyfriend Travis Kelce, 34, when she was suddenly caught off-guard by James’ echo-heavy remix of the track.

In a video shared to TikTok, Taylor immediately stops dancing and looks into the camera that’s filming her with a blank expression.

“How dare you interrupt the Taylor Swift. You had one job,” one person wrote to James.

Meanwhile, another TikTok user appeared happy about Taylor’s presence during James’ set, saying, “MY WORLDS COLLIDING.”

As the video went viral on social media, James took to his Instagram Story to share his reaction, telling his fans and followers he was “living for this.”

While enjoying the festivities at Coachella, James and girlfriend Ally Lewber, 27, spoke to E! News about Pump Rules season 11, with him reacting to being labeled as the series’ new “voice of reason.”

“Since being crowned ‘number one guy in the group’ a little over a year ago, I did realize that it comes with some responsibility these days so I became one of the guys’ girls this season. I just wanted to be there for everyone. And honestly, the guys have been slacking a bit. Let’s be real. So yeah, switched teams for a little bit,” James explained before crediting Ally with his newfound calmness.

“This amazing, amazing girl right here … The love of my life. My rock,” he shared, pointing at his girlfriend of just over two years. “She really does make me a better man every single day. She’ll put me in my place. No cutting in lines. It starts with, ‘Behave on the plane. Don’t be too loud.’ I’ll behave as long as I can keep kissing her.”

Ally feels similarly, telling the outlet, “He brings it out of me too, even just with releasing a single and getting back into music again.”

According to James, he loves making music with Ally and can’t wait to see where their musical journey takes them.

“It’s an adventure I want to go on. I’m so proud of her. She’s so talented. She plays guitar. She’s a singer/songwriter. I’m a producer. It’s a match made in heaven,” he gushed.

Vanderpump Rules season 11 airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
