You brandish that tissue, Taylor

Taylor Swift seems to be moving on from her past relationship with Calvin Harris very well – well enough for her to keep him in her professional life, albeit in a small way. At her only concert of 2016 at the recent Circuit of the Americas Formula 1 leg in Austin, Texas, the singer performed This Is What You Came For, which she co-wrote with Calvin under a pseudonym.

"I've never played this song live before," Taylor said to the crowd. "But if you know it, maybe you could sing along, and then I could get to know what that feels like to hear it sung back to me."

Taylor is also celebrating another milestone – her debut album Taylor Swift was released exactly 10 years ago today! But as Murphy's law doesn't exempt celebrities, Taylor got a cold three days before the show. She had to excuse herself to go for a tissue break. She's human, after all.

"It's been about 10 years since my first album came out when I was 16," she said. "And since then, I felt like I've been opening up my journal and letting you read it. And it's so amazing to know that 10 years later, you still feel like reading it, and you still feel like coming out and being here tonight in Austin, Texas."
