Happy 30th Birthday, Taylor Swift!

 

 

 

 

The birthday celebrations kicked off on Thursday when Taylor was awarded with the first-ever Billboard Woman of the Decade Award.  It was inside the Hollywood Palladium, Taylor gave a heartfelt speech, voicing her opinion(s) on sexism within the music industry, “When this decade began I was 20 years old.  I saw that as a female in this industry, some people will always have the slightest reservations about you.  Examples include questioning whether a male producer or co-writer was the reason for your success, or whether it was a savvy record label [responsible for your success]. It wasn’t.  People want to explain away a woman’s success in this industry.”

 

 

 

Taylor also posted this adorable photo of herself on Instagram and the caption reads, “Who’s gonna tell her she’s thirtay now.”

Afterwards, Taylor posted photos on Instagram, writing, “Honestly spending my 30th with the fans who have made my life what it is at jingle ball, then throwing the most aggressive holiday party known to womankind… I just.. seriously feel so lucky for you all and will spend forever trying to find ways to say thank you. *cries in Christmas tree*
