Taylor Swift, possibly the singer who best embodies the adorkable ethos of in her public persona, will guest-star in the "New Girl" Season 2 finale.Swift will arrive just in time to be a guest at the wedding of Cece (Hannah Simone) and Shivrang (guest star Satya Bhabha), EW.com reports. Going by the name of Elaine, all we know is that Swift's character will be an important guest at the ceremony. Could we be about to meet another of Cece's model friends?

But as we learn in "Chicago," maturity is a relative concept -- as in, what is immature among your peers counts as mature with your relatives. Nick is, as it turns out, the mature... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/03/new-girl-death-is-funny-and-kind-of-amazing-in-chicago.html
