The weekend’s 5 most Taylor Swift-y Taylor Swift moments
1. Recounting her first tour, Swift told the crowd on Saturday night, “When I came here on my first tour, my best friend Abigail and I talked about how much we wanted to move to Minnesota.” And then she added the main reason why: “We really, really liked the Mall of America.”
2. Sandwiched between video clips of celebrity friends such as Selena Gomez and Lena Dunham talking about how much they love her, Swift held up her two cats on screen and talked about how much she loves the felines — including the one that fought appearing on camera. “No cats were harmed in the making of this video,” the video board read. “Just one pop star.”
3. Not a lot of today’s pop stars could pull off a solo acoustic segment in their concert, and no one pulled theirs off like Swift. Eschewing the usual humble, stripped-down, sit-down approach, she floated high above the crowd on a runway stage that rose up like a rocket launchpad and rotated 360 degrees around the center of the arena.
4. The dramatic ballad “Wildest Dreams” started with Swift seated at an ornate silver piano wearing a large, poofy chiffon-style elegant skirt, but by song’s end she had taken the skirt off to strut around in a sleek gold-spangled bodysuit.
5. Swift’s all-male dance troupe came out waving giant paper-airplanes on sticks during the concert’s penultimate song “Out of the Woods,” and soon thereafter confetti also shaped like small paper-airplanes fell from the ceiling.
