Taylor Swift Laughs Long After Jay Leno's Bad Photographer Impression (VIDEO)

Taylor Swift, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Taylor Swift thinks Jay Leno is hilarious. Only maybe not in the way he hopes he's funny. As evidenced on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), Leno clearly bombed with what he was hoping was a rather charming and funny little impression of a fashion photographer.

He was talking to Swift about her recent work for Cover Girl, which she says is a great deal of fun, and even involves a thing called a "leaping coach."

But then Leno decided to ask her if those photographers really act the way we see them in the media, saying things like "Come on, baby! Gimme a smile!"

The look on Swift's face as she just stared at him through this routine was simply priceless. He tried to continue it for awhile, but she just quietly looked at him like he'd lost his mind, or he was a poor broken man, until he finally stopped.

When he tried to steer the conversation away from the debacle that just happened and back to the leaping coach, Swift finally lost her composure. "I was still laughing at your photo shoot impression," she explained later of her sudden outburst.

The joke may have bombed, but Swift's response was beyond brilliant.

Jay Leno doesn't realize that a big part of his audience are conservative. When he upholds the radical liberal ideals of Obama and their kind, he shoves his foot deeper and deeper into his big mouth. I used to like Jay Leno, but I realize he is part of the problem...not part of the solution.

She strikes me as a nice kid and maybe a good role model for youngsters. Most kids her age could use some language skills but as long as she doesn’t turn into a Lindsey Lohan or Brittney Spears she gets 5 stars from me.

It looks like Jay saw his joke was going over her head so he just said
Forget about that. What's the big deal? There is only so much time alloted to these guests, maybe he didn't want to waste time explaining how on old TV shows the photographer in the photo shoot was portrayed this way.

What a rediculous article. It's not that there isn't plenty to actually report in the world . ..Jason Hughes?...who approved this stupid article? Are they in the third grade? Jay Leno is the best at what he does every night and they report this? Pst..
