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!

4. Kathryn Bernardo 

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!

5. Jayda Avanzado

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.

6. Andrea Brilliantes

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!
