Taylor Swift has brought her Red tour to Los Angeles, and beyond the fact that she's returning to the city where she's spent considerable quality time onstage, in the studio and just hanging out, Swift's stint at Staples Center this week has earned her a special distinction.

Taylor Swift has built a career dropping hints to the identities of bad boyfriends in hit songs as an example of the adage for the broken-hearted, “Don't get mad - get even.” Last weekend when Swift's “Red” tour reached Foxborough, Mass., she brought out Carly Simon, the woman who has kept listeners guessing for more than 40 years about the subject of her kiss-off song “You're So Vain.” “When I heard 'You're So Vain,' I thought, that...
