Taylor Swift celebrated her 26th birthday on Sunday, Dec. 13 and the end of her 1989 world concert tour with a throwback childhood picture and concert movie films plans.

The singer took to Instagram on Sunday to share a cute picture of herself as a child which showed her depicting her classic “surprised” face, E!News reported.   In the throwback photo, the much younger Swift had her mouth open in a surprised “O” as she stood with a hand braced on a wall.  Swift looked adorable in the picture with her blond hair all wavy around her face, as she wore a pink and blue dress which had Disney’s “Little Mermaid” printed on the front. 

She captioned the image, "Today I begin my 26th year of freaking out over stuff.”

According to E!News, the Instagram picture was an early depiction of Swift’s surprised face which she would typically display when accepting awards during events.  So far, the pop singer has collected more than 70 awards which includes 7 Grammys, 11 CMA Awards, 22 Billboard Music Awards and more. 

Apart from sharing a cute throwback picture to mark her 26th birthday, the singer also gave her fans a treat when she announced her plans for a 1989 concert movie.  Swift also shared a short clip on Twitter of the upcoming tour film project.  She wrote, “Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes. I have a little surprise for you.  #1989WorldTourLIVE @applemusic.”



Swift’s "The 1989 World Tour Live” will debut exclusively on Apple Music on Dec. 20.  According to the New York Times,  the exclusive streaming deal marks the deepening ties between Swift and Apple.  In June this year, Swift wrote a blog post in which she called out Apple for not paying the artists royalties during the free trials in Apple Music.  Shortly after the singer’s post, Apple decided to change its policies.  Apple Music eventually became the only music streaming platform for Swift’s 1989 album.

Meanwhile, Swift recently wrapped up her 1989 worldwide tour with a final performance in Melbourne on Friday, Dec. 11, Music Times reported.  The pop singer even shared a big group hug on stage with some of the members of the 1989 concert tour crew.  Swift also took to Instagram to thank her Melbourne fans for their support.

She wrote, "Melbourne, the first two nights with you have been magical. Tonight we play this show for the very last time.  I'm so honored I get to share the last night of the 1989 World Tour with all of you. This has been the most incredible adventure. Thank you for all of it."
