Swift has had a heck of a year. The “Lavender Haze” singer released her tenth album “Midnights” in October, announced her first global stadium tour in half a decade, and she now has to worry about a pending lawsuit; a copyright lawsuit over her 2014 hit “Shake It Off” was dropped after five years!

Before we get the scoop on how Swifties are celebrating the “Fearless” singer’s birthday, let’s take a look at some of Swift’s recent triumphs!
Swift Has Written An Original Film Script And Will Direct A Feature Film!
Swift’s work ethic is definitely one for the ages; two years ago, she memorably released two full-length albums in a single year, and now she’ll be able to add ‘film director’ to her resume!
According to The Blast’s recent report about Swift’s latest career milestone, Swift’s upcoming film will be released via Searchlight Pictures.
The company’s two presidents David Greenbaum and Matthew Greenfield described working with Swift as “A genuine joy and privilege to collaborate with [her] as she embarks on this exciting and new creative journey,” via a statement (per The Hollywood Reporter). The duo also describes Swift as “A once-in-a-generation artist and storyteller.”
The birthday woman had previously expressed her desire to step into the director’s chair during an “In conversation event” during the Toronto Film Festival in September.
Swift revealed her gravitation toward films centering around “human emotion” over action films.
“I will always want to tell human stories about human emotion,” she said during the event, citing a number of female directors, including Nora Ephron, as inspiration.
When discussing the idea of jumping into the director’s chair, Swift explained, “If it were the right thing, it would be such a privilege and honor.”

There could be lots of happy Swifties this holiday season!
In spite of many triumphant career moments in 2022, Swift has had to endure some hurdles as well. After announcing ‘The Eras Tour’ last month, the conversation surrounding the tour was quickly overshadowed by ticket sale struggles per Ticketmaster.
Almost immediately after ticket presales began, fans began experiencing a staggering amount of difficulty acquiring tickets after Ticketmaster began experiencing technical difficulties resulting in a crash. Ticketmaster now faces a lawsuit filed by fans for the outlet’s cancellation of a scheduled sale day.
According to our report on the situation, fans allege Ticketmaster “misrepresent[ed] their services,” and allege the company collided “with scalpers for their own profit.”
A little over a month after ticket sales originally took place, Ticketmaster is now giving Swifties another chance to acquire tickets for the ‘Eras’ tour! Yesterday, the company announced a “limited opportunity” for fans to “purchase up to two tickets each,” according to NBC News. The outlet also reported the opportunity was made at the request of Swift’s team.
