DC Has a Message for Taylor Swift:


Traffic is backing up. Newsfeeds are being flooded. Little girls are elated. Iran is getting ignored. Why? Taylor is in town.

Last night, T-Swift performed for the capital and of course, FamousDC was there. Aside from the other 45,000 fans at the sold out Nationals Stadium, it was basically like she was giving us our own private show. Taylor performed better than ever belting out hit songs like Blank Space, Clean, Romeo and Juliet among other fan favorites. The biggest surprise of the night? Lorde appeared as the guest star performing a duet with Taylor, bringing fans to their feet and lighting up the entire park with 45,000 LED concert bracelets and Snapchatting cellphones. One thing’s for sure- there is definitely no “Bad Blood” between T-Swift and DC.


Everyone’s tweeting about it:

@taylorswift13: When your friend flies across the world to surprise your crowd with ‘Royals’ bc she’s a wondrous angel. @lordemusic

@lordemusic: just laughing like “this is our job how lucky are we/this stadium is so loud and pretty/we are best buds/KILLING IT”

@lordemusic: but seriously, @taylorswift13 is the leader of a great and beautiful galaxy that i’d live in forever


That stage equipment malfunction? pshhh ain’t no thang. #shakeitoff

I’ll just be here forever, stuck up here, unless I choose to jump down,” the star said to the sold-out crowd when she found herself stuck in mid air on a small platform, extended out over the audience, and unable to get back to the main stage. As a only a true performer can, she took the malfunction with stride and used it as opportunity to break out into song. Oh Taylor, you amaze us.


And guess what- it’s all happening again tonight.
