New on Family Guy's hitlist: Taylor Swift and her very emotional breakup songs

Seth MacFarlane's show Family Guy has a unique specialty: to mock celebrities and popular figures.

Trump, Sarah Palin, Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Julia Roberts; all have been on Seth MacFarlane's hit list.

So it was no surprise that the latest episode of Family Guy featured pop-icon Taylor Swift. The season 15, episode 6 titled 'Chris Has Got A Date, Date, Date, Date, Date,' the singer and Chris Griffin share a romantic night together.

Even in the animated world, Taylor still is heartbroken and continues her 'bad habit' of creating revenge songs for her ex-boyfriends, and this time it is for Chris. the song is called 'The Boy In The Giant Tux,' and Chris is horrified as he listens to the lyrics: 'Cause I know you're just blubber in a dress shirt / He licked his armpit and then ate all my dinner and desert'.

Chris goes on to confront her and she tells him, 'I'm sorry, I always do this,' she said. 'I ruin relationships with nice guys and John Mayer just so I can write songs about heartbreak and moving on.'

She apologises and resolves to write a positive song for Chris, which she plays at a concert the following night.'I'm pretty and I'm rich and I'm in love, me Taylor / I've met the guy that I've been dreaming of, me Taylor,' she begins. But she and Chris realise that her fans only love her when she is miserable and Chris lets her continue writing a breakup song painting him as a bad guy in her songs:

This isn't the first time Swift appeared on the show; in 2014, both she and a 'mentally challenged' Taylor Not-So-Swift popped up for a cutaway gag.
