Taylor Swift’s 25th birthday party was a veritable who’s who of the music world. With Beyoncé, Jay Z, and Justin Timberlake on hand, Taylor celebrated the start of her mid-20s with a bang in her NYC apartment on Friday. According to Us Weekly, a source said the stars sipped on Blue Moon and Stella beer and indulged in “about eight bags of Japanese food.” At one point, the group gathered with Taylor’s other pals — including Ansel Elgort, Sam Smith, Karlie Kloss, and the HAIM ladies — for epic Instagram snaps. The collage shows Taylor wrapping her arms around Sam and Justin, who donned a rather realistic emoji headpiece. “So this is being 25….. #WHAT #bestbirthdayEVER,” Taylor captioned the post.
Although the picture was no doubt star-studded, it didn’t feature everyone in attendance, namely Selena Gomez, Nick Jonas and Olivia Culpo, Chrissy Teigen, Kelly Osbourne, Charli XCX, Shawn Mendes, and members of 5 Seconds of Summer. Meanwhile, Matt Healy, Taylor’s rumored new boyfriend, and Jessica Biel, who has been the subject of pregnancy rumors in recent months, were noticeably absent. Taylor’s Friday wasn’t all about partying with stars, though, as the singer performed at Z100’s Jingle Ball concert at Madison Square Garden earlier in the evening. Read on to see how Taylor spent her birthday, and then check out 40 of her most jaw-dropping moments.
