Of course Taylor Swift's 25th birthday is going to be epic. If her current popularity growth rate holds steady, today, December 13, might eventually become a national holiday.
Taylor started off her birthday festivities at the Billboard Women in Music Luncheon on Friday, where she was honored as woman of the year (nice way to start a birthday). “Raise your hand in the audience if you’ve got a birthday tomorrow,” host Matt Lauer asked at the event, leading Taylor’s hand to shoot up. “Oh! That’s me!”
Taylor was then given a sweet birthday serenade by none other than Aretha Franklin. Just like any other 25 year old, right?
She then headed to Madison Square Garden for the Z100 Jingle Ball, and performed some of her biggest hits, including "Blank Space" and "I Knew You Were Trouble."
After dropping the mic at the Garden, Taylor headed to her downtown NYC apartment for a midnight pizza party, as one does. Of course, Jay Z and Beyoncé do not normally show up at our pizza party. Or Justin Timberlake. Or Chrissy Teigen. Or Sam Smith. Or Selena Gomez in a custom manicure. We're getting dizzy just thinking about how fun this party must have been.
Let's get to the pictures, because they're amazing.
Yes, that's Justin Timberlake wearing the poop emoji as a mask. Is this real life?
Taylor posted this adorable photo of herself as a child to remind us she's been hustlin' since back in the day (you know, the '90s).
Oh it's just Aretha Franklin singing happy birthday to Taylor. Bow down.
Selena Gomez even got a Tay-centric mani for her BFF. NBD.
