A month and a half after releasing her world-beating album 1989, Taylor Swift is still breaking records. The "Blank Space" singer recently announced that she will be headed back to Australia next winter, a trip that will make her the first female solo artist to play back-to-back stadium tours in the country.
Swift last played for the Aussies in 2013 on her Red Tour. Billboard points out that she was the first female to play stadiums there since Madonna's Girlie Show two decades earlier.
Taylor's 1989 tour has now reached 63 total dates in eight countries and four continents with the addition of four Australian engagements.
Here are the schedule additions:
11/28/15: Sydney, Australia @ ANZ Stadium
12/5: Brisbane, Australia @ Suncorp Stadium
12/7: Adelaide, Australia @ Adelaide Entertainment Centre Arena
12/11: Melbourne, Australia @ AAMI Park
It seems like Taylor can pretty much do whatever she wants at this point, but there is one dream she will not accomplish: playing Joni Mitchell in a feature film.
In an interview with The Sunday Times,via NME, Mitchell revealed that she has pulled the plug on the project, citing the casting of Swift as one of the primary reasons.
"I squelched that!" Mitchell said. "I said to the producer, 'All you've got is a girl with high cheekbones.' It's just a lot of gossip, you don't have the great scenes."
"There's a lot of nonsense about me in books," Mitchell went on to say, "assumptions, assumptions, assumptions."
From our own Joey DeGroot: "The now-halted film was based on the book Girls Like Us by Sheila Weller, which followed the rise of Mitchell and her singer-songwriter contemporaries Carly Simon and Carole King during the 1970s. Swift was cast as Mitchell back in 2012, with Mad Men's Jessica Pare cast as Simon and The Newsroom's Alison Pill cast as King.
