Taylor Swift launched her new album with a secret listening party for fans at her Los Angeles home on Saturday.
Fans took to Twitter to express their joy at winning an invitation to the singer’s home in a contest via her website. They listened to new record 1989 and hung out with the star for five hours.
The “Shake It Off” hitmaker introduced followers to her parents and her pet cat, Olivia Benson, baked pumpkin chocolate chip cookies for her guests, and took Polaroids with her fans.
The pictures, posted on Twitter, show attendees posing with the singer and holding her Grammy award, her cat and books.
Swift also gave the fans piles of 1989 merchandise to take home with them, including T-shirts, bags and copies of the album.
