Happy 30th birthday, Taylor Swift!
The pop superstar spent her 30th birthday in New York Friday night (Dec. 13), performing for thousands of adoring fans at the 2019 Jingle Ball at Madison Square Garden. After the show, Swift celebrated with other acts on the bill, including Camila Cabello, Halsey and 5 Seconds of Summer.
“Honestly spending my 30th with the fans who have made my life what it is at jingle ball, then throwing the most aggressive holiday party known to womankind… I just.. seriously feel so lucky for you all and will spend forever trying to find ways to say thank you. *cries in Christmas tree*” Swift captioned a series of backstage photos on Instagram.
During the middle of her seven-song Jingle Ball set, Z100’s Elvis Duran wheeled out a giant birthday cake covered with images of Swift’s cats. He then led the 20,000-person crowd in a happy birthday sing-along.
“That was the most beautiful song I’ve ever heard,” she said, grinning ear to ear. And the birthday wishes didn’t stop there: Once Swift left the stage, a 90-second video with shout-outs from Katy Perry, BTS and several more stars played.
Swift, who recently received Billboard‘s Woman of the Decade Award, later posted a photo of her feline-covered cake on Instagram. “Fur real guys this was my cake,” she captioned the pic.
Other celebrities spotted in Swift’s celebratory birthday photos included musician Jack Antonoff, actress Blake Lively and model Gigi Hadid, among others. See the photos from her backstage birthday celebration below.
