Thanks to her authentic lyrics and clever songwriting, Taylor Swift has garnered a loyal following all over the world. In fact, she's such a brilliant storyteller that even some of the biggest Filipino celebrities can't help but ~stan~ her as well! These stars are certified Swifties through and through, as evidenced by their envy-worthy merch collections and relatable reactions to Taylor's new drops.
In honor of the upcoming "Midnights" release, we've rounded up seven Filipino celebrities who love Taylor as much as you do:
1. Maris Racal
It's been nearly a decade since Taylor last visited the Philippines, so we don't blame Maris for flying to Tokyo just to watch her perform live. She even joked about breaking up with her boyfriend Rico Blanco when Taylor released "Red (Taylor's Version)."
2. Alexa Ilacad
Alexa's another proud Swiftie who enjoys collecting official merch! Fun fact: She also did an amazing cover of "All Too Well" back in 2020.
3. Julia Barretto
Fine, we admit that we were low-key jealous when Julia had the chance to meet Taylor up close a few years ago. Of course, she also graced the concert as a VIP guest!
Like Julia, Kathryn is a lucky fangirl who got to take a photo with her favorite artist. She even went to the meet and greet with her bestie Arisse de Santos. Talk about BFF goals!
As a fellow singer-songwriter, Jayda apparently draws lots of inspiration from Taylor's music. In a previous interview, she also admitted that "august" is a mainstay in her Spotify rainy day playlist.
Andrea's known for being a die-hard BLINK, but did you know that she's a dedicated Swiftie, too? She loves referencing Taylor's songs on her TikTok and IG posts!
@blythe Happy RED day ! ( yes i know wonderland is from 1989 draft pa toh hehe ) #fyp #taylorswift #redtaylorsversion @imsethyboy Hannah Dulcie Sound - Hannah ???? ????
7. Janine Gutierrez
ICYDK, Janine's actually been listening to Taylor's music since 2011! As expected from an OG Swiftie, she had the most relatable ~kalat~ reaction to Taylor's "Fearless" re-recording last year.
