Shake. It. Off.
I'll admit, when Taylor Swift came out with her albums Red and 1989, I was skeptical to the change. I felt as if her new sound wasn't her, but I was wrong, it was more her than anything she had ever created before. As she stated at the concert, 1989 was an all new creation, the songs were not written about a break up or a relationship but instead written about her. 1989 is the all new Taylor and she's stronger than ever. She moved to New York, chopped off all her hair, and now she's ready to take on the world with her badass team of friends. (Have you seen the Bad Blood music video?!)
The concert from start to finish was spectacular, with a few bumps in the road. The three opening acts were Shawn Mendes, Vance Joy, and HAIM. Being able to see a star on the rise perform, Riptide live, and the HAIM sisters go wild on stage was an amazing experience. Then of course Taylor was just a powerhouse amazing performer and singer. Her costumes and background dancers were just as fabulous too. Her stage? Not so cool. At one point during the first half of the concert Taylor was stuck on her catwalk portion of the stage that had risen above the crowd during her ballad of "This Love." We can all thank the DC rain for that.
If you keep up with Taylor on social media you know full well that every concert has had surprise special guests. From the women's soccer team to the Kardashians, Taylor likes to keep her fans, or friends, on their toes. DC was no different. Not only was there a musical guest, but she also flew 19 hours to DC just to perform, and she's Taylor's best friend. YES! FREAKING LORDE CAME AND PERFORMED ROYALS WITH TAYLOR! My life is complete.
So in conclusion, Taylor Swift is dominating the music industry and I clearly need to work on my model walk because hers kills.
