1989 world tour


By now you have surely seen the pictures of Taylor Swift inviting her pals on stage as she travels around the globe with her 1989 world tour.

First we saw the likes of Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevingne joining her in front of the adoring crowd, but it seems she has even more besties then we could have ever imagined. 

This weekend saw Taylor introduce actor Matt LeBlanc and comedian Chris Rock during her performance in the Los Angeles Staples Center

They were also joined on stage by Sean O'Pry, a model who starred in Taylor's video for Blank Space. 

Ms Swift documented the moment on Instagram saying: "The #1 male model in the world, Sean O'Pry,And the #2 and #3 top male models, Chris Rock and Matt LeBlanc. Obviously."

The 25-year-old has been growing her 'squad' since she began touring in May and fans get treated to a surprise guest or two, at every concert. 

At Saturday's gig, Taylor also performed Doubt, and Family Affair with Mary J. Blige and was later joined on stage by Orange Is The New Black actress Uzo Aduba. 

Taylor said she was really moved by Uzo's talent: "I'm so blown away by the multi-talented Uzo Aduba and how she smashed White Horse tonight, and also by how incredibly down to earth and wonderfully kind she is."


This month Vanity Fair have given Taylor Swift the title ‘Captain of the #GirlSquad’ as she features on the magazine’s cover.

As she’s travelled around the globe for her 1989 tour, there has been one trend the public can’t help but notice. Taylor has an awful lot of famous friends, and she loves inviting them on stage with her.

Her posse of female celebs is, according to Tay-Tay herself, “so much more important than some guy that it didn't work out with.”

She has revealed however that there are girls in the group who share more than a love of onesies and Taylor’s company, admitting “We even have girls in our group who have dated the same people.”

We thought so. Taylor went on to say that instead of their shared love lives generating some awkward moments for the gang, she thinks they have more important things to worry about.

“Now more than ever we need to be good and kind to each other and not judge each other – and just because you have the same taste in men, we don’t hold that against each other.” The Bad Blood singer counts Karlie Kloss, Lena Dunham, Gigi Hadid, Selena Gomez and tennis superstar Serena Williams as some of the many who have joined her on tour this year.

She also said that when it came to addressing her issues with tech giant Apple, her mom was the person whose opinion she valued most.

She said she told her: "I’m really scared of this letter, but I had to write it. I might not post it, but I had to say it."  

Taylor revealed she relaxed her attitude towards love and dating in the last couple of years saying, “If I found someone who would never try to change me that would be the only person I could fall in love with.”

Considering her and Calvin Harris seemed more loved up than ever celebrating BFF Karlie Kloss’ birthday together it looks like the laid-back approach worked out.


In the last week alone, Taylor Swift has taken on music giant Apple (and won), performed five arena shows, hung out with Emma Watson and Serena Williams… and of course made a visit to our little island.

The singer hit the stage at Dublin's 3Arena last night for the first of two sell-out shows, and if she was tired after a VERY busy week, she certainly didn't let it show. Gone were the slow, softly-sung country songs that made Taylor a hit back in the day, and in their place were high-octane hits like Bad Blood, Shake It Off and Out Of The Woods, all performed with maximum energy to 16,000 screaming fans.

SHEmazing! were there to see Tay-Tay giving it socks, and if you're heading along tonight, here's a taster of our favourite bits…

1. When we realised what those weird rubber wristbands were actually for
Before heading into the arena, every audience member was given a light up band:

And a few songs in, they began syncing up to the songs for a seriously impressive light-show.



2. When Tay subtly serenaded her man Calvin during her performance of I Know Places
Spot him at the end of the video… by the sound desk, looking smitten!


3. When people in the balcony seats finally got a close-up view
If you're in the seated area tonight, don't fret, as Taylor made sure to get near to those fans too.

Very, very near.


4. When she ditched the dancing for Wildest Dreams and played the piano live instead
Talk about multi-talented…


5. When her cats Meredith and Olivia made a special appearance
They weren't the only ones who made the big screen by the way… a few of Tay's other besties were up there too, but we won't ruin it for you!


6. When the light-up umbrellas and fake rain came and everyone freaked out with the sheer amazingness of it all


7. When she KILLED IT during the finale
We won't say much, but there were some incredible graphics:

And this amazing raised catwalk:

As for the rest, you'll have to wait and see…



As if we weren’t excited enough already for Taylor coming to Dublin, it is now being speculated that Hozier may be making an appearance on stage as well. 

Tay-Tay is playing the first of two sold-out shows in the 3Arena in Dublin tonight and rumour has it that the Take Me to Church Bray-native may be joining her.

We have all seen the likes of Cara Delevingne, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid join the 25-year-old on stage throughout her 1989 tour, so it would seem fitting that Ireland’s biggest star would make an appearance.

Speaking to The Mirror, an insider explained that “Taylor and Hozier have become good friends since meeting in the US last year so it would be a fitting tribute if he joined her on stage in his home country.”

The source further revealed that Hozier has a break in his schedule as he finished up Glastonbury festival yesterday and isn’t playing again until Tuesday when he has a gig in London.

However, the Someone New singer was speaking to Dermot and Dave on Today FM and warned that fans shouldn't be getting too excited because he is in fact not in the country. 

So – is this an elaborate ruse to keep fans in the dark or have the rumours simply gone too far once again? 

Either way, we have no doubt that Taylor's concert is going to be as spectacular as always. And as for any mystery guests, we will just have to wait and see!
