Taylor Swift has long reigned supreme as #SquadGoal Queen, but the songstress just blew all our expectations out of the water.
Ahead of her 26th birthday and the conclusion of her global tour next week, Tay Tay decided to whisk away all 125 members of her crew to a getaway on the Great Barrier Reef’s Hamilton Island.
Taking to Instagram, she said: “So stoked to be able to take my band and crew on a vacation at the end of a long and wonderful tour. For all their hard work this year, they really deserve it. Thank you to Hamilton Island for taking such great care of 125 of the people who work tirelessly to make sure the 1989 World Tour stage gets built, the lights are on, the costumes are made, the guitars are tuned, and the show goes on.”
But despite having A LOT to celebrate from the past year, Swifty has shut down reports from the Australian press that the crew festivites will continue into a “celebrity-studded birthday bash.”
Within the same Instagram post, she added: “Aussie press, I love your enthusiasm but my birthday isn’t for 2 weeks. And it’ll be a quiet one this year. Let’s take it down a notch.”
Whether or not we believe that or not is another case. The New York Daily News reports that Swift will be flying boyfriend Calvin Harris and BFFs Selena Gomez and Gigi Hadid to join her on the island.
And apparently her squad isn’t limited to just humans. The record-breaking pop star (she was recently tipped as the world’s highest-earning music star, FYI), just uploaded a snap of herself and a cockatoo on her beach retreat captioned: “Making friends on Hamilton Island.”
Clearly it’s not as hard to become a Swifty squad recruit as we thought..
