They have won two BRIT awards, three Teen Choice awards and three MTV Video Music Awards. They have even managed to break a Guinness World Record when they became the first British band to debut their first album at number one in the US charts.

“Taylor Swift has been reportedly being transported in a huge suitcase from her Tribeca apartment into her truck. A fleet of cars including two large Cadillacs and three SUVs arrive at Tailor Swift's apartment in Tribeca to move a large suitcase from apartment to truck. Almost a dozen of Taylor Swift security guards were present to move this package carefully as Taylor Swift remains to be unseen for a long time.”
