6 Celebs Who Attended Taylor Swift’s Concert But Weren’t Invited Onstage


Tue, August, 25 by


Taylor Swift’s 1989 tour has been a tour de force of power pop anthems and surprise celeb guests. Over the past few months, publications everywhere have been covering the celeb appearances to the point where the history of the phrase #SquadGoals have somehow been rewritten to include Swift. (Please note that she did NOT coin or popularize that phrase, though.)

From close friends to odd but enjoyable cameos, Swift’s tour has given fans something exciting to look forward at every stop, but of course Swift is only one person and the stage is only so big (well, okay, it’s pretty big) so she can’t invite all her famous pals up.

Below are a few celebs who attended Taylor Swift’s 1989 tour, but unfortunately wasn’t invited up onstage. This isn’t to say these people aren’t cool enough to grace Swift’s stage or to insinuate any beef. Not at all! All we’re saying is that we would’ve like to have seen these faces up onstage, too!

Hilary Duff
Two nights ago, Hilary Duff posted a photo of Taylor Swift’s show in L.A. but instead of being up onstage with her, the pop star was in the crowd amongst the fans. While Swift invited artists like Alanis Morissette and Natalie Maines to join her onstage, Duff was left out but she still had a great time regardless! She even calls Taylor a “total G”!

She's a total G @taylorswift you were … #taylorswift

Kate Hudson
The actress enjoyed the L.A. show with her children last night, but Hudson is no stranger to music world either having performed on the TV show Glee and 2009’s Nine.

Whitney Port
Fashion maven and ex-star of The City and The Hills Whitney Port attended a Taylor Swift show two nights ago, but was up in the crowd as opposed to up close onstage. We’re not sure if Taylor Swift ever watched The Hills or The City, but we think they’d make the perfect BFF duo. Taylor, hit up Whitney ASAP!

Mark Wahlberg
The actor took his daughter Ella to see Taylor Swift recently and while he didn’t get to walk the long runway in front of thousands of fans, he did give his daughter the ultimate early birthday gift: a wicked photo with Taylor!

Mission accomplished– happy early birthday Ella!!! Thanks so much @taylorswift

Adam Scott
Walhberg isn’t the only one taking his kids backstage to meet Taylor Swift: Adam Scott also snapped a pic with the pop star with his wife and kids!

Janel Parrish
The Pretty Little Liars star didn’t get to hit the runway, but she did get to enjoy the show from a VIP lounge!

Taylor Swift last night at the Hyde Lounge was so damn fun. Thanks for having us @tbahama! @itsskylershaye
