Taylor Swift: How She Handled a Stage Malfunction

Taylor Swift suffered a bit of a malfunction during the Washington, DC stop of her 1989 world tour on July 13th. They presented the hostess with a Swift#13 jersey. Good for Swift for inviting the USA Women’s World Cup soccer team on stage over the weekend, but where was their invitation when they were just a bunch of scrappy athletes, and not World champions being honored with a New York ticker-tape parade?


The Pennsylvania native sang over 18 songs during her kitty cat performance and shared opening acts with Shawn Mendes, Vance Joy and Haim.

The megapopular pop star was clad in high waisted white shorts and a matching strapless top – both of which were rimmed with diamond piping.

1989 has sold over six million copies to date.

And while that’s disappointing in one sense, it was encouraging on Monday night to see Swift doubling down on the most recent entries in her songbook. The blonde beauty, who was joined by her musical friends, Haim, showed off her endless legs as she left her apartment in a tiny pink lace mini dress from Free People.

Taylor later took to Instgram to thank her best friend. I know you already know the answer and you’re probably going to hate Lorde for singing this song for the trillionth time but, it’s been over a year (right?) since she has performed “Royals” anywhere.

Alongside not one, but six heart emojis, Lorde posted on her account, “Looking over at my girl like “can u believe this is the kind of fun stuff we get to do for a living””.
