The country-pop princess and the goth God Of F*ck posed together for a pic taken backstage at Los Angeles festival Wango Tango, contrasting hilariously with T-Swizzle frocked up in a bubblegum pick tassled jacket and Manson (naturally) clad head to toe in black.
The two are not known m8s, so we can only presume they joined forces for the culture-clashing snap to troll us all. And it worked.
The memes and Twitter reactions are coming thick and fast:
