From Georgie: I went to Taylor’s Adelaide concert and she was absolutely amazing! We lined up at 8 AM and had friends who had been lining up since 4:30 AM and we all received pit passes while we were waiting for Taylor to arrive. The pits were located in an exclusive sectioned off part of the floor and we had great views for the whole concert. She interacted with the crowd really well. Her singing was also incredible and her band was super nice.
She took our Caramel Tim Tams because they are her favourite Australian biscuit. After the show, we followed a car full of luggage that parked outside the Hilton, where she was staying. Taylor, her mum and all of her band members were so nice and they shared the packet of Tim Tams with us that we gave her earlier! We spoke to her for about 10 minutes before she went inside because she was flying out to Japan the next day.
Also pix of Tay arriving at Narita International Airport in Japan. Taylor has come under fire from Australian environmental activists after feeding wild possums. On Wednesday Taylor visited a park and Tweeted: 'Tonight the band and I played a show, then hopped in the van and headed to the park for some midnight wild possum feeding.' Spokesperson for Environment Department said:
'We know people who feed wild animals often have the best intentions and that it is attractive to tourists who want to interact with Australian wildlife. However, DSE advises people not to feed wild animals. It can disrupt their natural behavior and it can cause some animals to lose their natural fear of people, making them vulnerable to attack.'

ABOUT 15 girls got picked out to go into this pit where she sang we spoke to Taylor's mum for about 15 minutes and she was so sweet she was telling us about their trip and how they love Australia. Newcastle from Kasey & Adelaide from Patricia!
Yahoo! rounded up the critical reviews of Taylor Swift's performance in Valentine's Day. Variety: 'Some teen viewers may be drawn by the lure of the two Taylors, but their time onscreen together arguably reps the film's low point.
Swift, especially, seems entirely undirected, as she jumps around, makes faces and jabbers on inanely. If she's to have a film career, she needs to find a skilled director to tamp her down and channel her obviously abundant energy.'
The Observer: 'This labored artifice strings together an 'all-star cast' (by today's dubious definition, anyway). That runs the gamut from tone-deaf Flavor of the Moment Taylor Swift and movie werewolf Taylor Lautner to veteran Oscar winner Shirley MacLaine.'
OK! Magazine: 'Taylor is not an actress, a regrettable performance. The movie isn't awful, and nor is it an award winner. Unless you count Swift's frontrunner status to add a worst supporting actress Razzie to her shelf full of Grammys.'
Time Out New York: 'Blond awards-magnet Taylor Swift reveals an unexpected gift for self-deprecating sunniness, chattering vacantly in an elevator to a stranger.' Anyway, all that matters is if her fans enjoy the movie :]
Naomi Judd, who's daughter Winona said Taylor Swift had 'too much too soon' @ the CMAs, came to Tay's defense. She told E! Online: 'Remember the puzzles, 'What's wrong with this picture?' You search for faults, ignoring the overall picture. Not only sings well enough to strike a chord with a huge audience.. she writes, dances, acts, and is a dazzling performer.
Taylor is the best-dressed young female artist today, in league with Hollywood's most glamorous stars. When I met her, I was impressed by her sincere transparent niceness. Taylor's a lovely young lady.. Smarts, manners,
..and class.. If there's an award for being the best role model for her generation, I'd like to be the one to give it to Taylor Swift.. Having sung many times at the Grammys, I can tell you that the stress and anxiety of performing in front of the world's top artists in every genre of music is tortuous for even the most seasoned singer.'
Taylor Swift dished to BOP! about how to throw the perfect slumber party! Tay loves hosting slumber parties when she is at home: 'I think slumber parties are awesome when you bake things!
I was always obsessed with baking, so I would be the one at the sleepover who never stopped eating. That's always fun!' What not to do? 'Don't convince everyone that you saw a ghost, because all the moms will hate you.'
