8 Times Taylor Swift Surprised Us in the Most Taylor Swift Way Possible
In honor of the singer's surprise new collaboration with Zayn Malik, we present you with the eight most glorious Swift surprises of all time
WHEN SHE SECRETLY COLLABORATED WITH ZAYN ON A SEXY NEW SINGLE
Swift surprised the whole fandom in December by dropping a new duet, titled "I Don't Wanna Live Forever," with Zayn Malik. The sexy track, which will be featured on the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack, was written by Swift, Jack Antonoff (who also produced the track) and Sam Dew specifically for the film.
WHEN SHE SANG THE SONG SHE CO-WROTE WITH CALVIN HARRIS
On Oct. 22, 2016, Swift gave her first live performance since wrapping up her 1989 tour almost a year before. On the set list of the Del Valle, Texas, show? Old classics like "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" and "Fifteen" — but also the song she secretly co-wrote with her ex Calvin Harris, "This Is What You Came for." Not sure if she was throwing shade or showing off, but we're living for it.
WHEN SHE THREW HER SWIFTMAS GIFT EXTRAVAGANZA
In 2014, the pop star outdid Santa with her Swiftmas gift-giving extravaganza, delivering fans personalized gifts all over the country.
WHEN SHE COMPLETELY TRANSFORMED HER LOOK
We did not expect to see punk rock vibes from the 1989 singer, but Swift lit the 2016 Met Gala on fire with her messy platinum bob and super dark lip.
WHEN SHE SURPRISED A SUPER-FAN AT HIS WEDDING
There is no way anyone will ever be able to top this wedding present. Swift surprised one of her all-time biggest fans — Max Singer — by showing up to celebrate his wedding, then performing "Blank Space" for the guests.
WHEN SHE THREW THE MOST EPIC 4TH OF JULY OF ALL TIME
… And turned her backyard into a patriotic water park, as we've always wanted to do.
WHEN SHE VISITED A CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL IN AUSTRALIA
This summer, Swift surprised patients at a Brisbane hospital, made a bunch of kids smile and, of course, took several adorable selfies.
WHEN SHE DONATED $1 MILLION DOLLARS TO FLOOD RELIEF
Swift donated $1 million to help those in need in Louisiana after August floods caused widespread disaster in the state, killing at least 11 people. In a statement, Swift said, "We began The 1989 World Tour in Louisiana, and the wonderful fans there made us feel completely at home. The fact that so many people in Louisiana have been forced out of their own homes this week is heartbreaking."
