Taylor Swift just managed to dispel my long-held belief that all her fans are 13-year-old girls. Sure, most of them are. But apparently there’s a 96-year-old grandpa out there who shakes his replacement hips to Shake It Off. And today he’s making all the other senior Swifty fans at Shady Pines jealous.
On Boxing Day, Taylor visited a 96-year-old WW2 veteran named Cyrus Porter. Taylor found out about Cyrus after his love of Taylor was profiled on a local news station last week. Cyrus says he’s known for two things: being a WW2 veteran and loving Taylor Swift. Cyrus has seen Taylor twice in concert with his daughter and two of his grandkids, driving more than two hours to see her each time and his daughter says he danced his 96-year-old butt off at both concerts.
When Taylor found out about Cyrus, she decided to drop off a Swiftmas™ gift in the form of a visit from herself and Cyrus looks beyond thrilled! Sorry, whoever gave Cyrus a pair of socks and a can of almonds for Christmas, your gift totally just got pushed under the couch.
Grandpa Cyrus even got a little living room concert too for himself and almost 60 of his closest relatives:
I wonder if he’ll be joining the squad?!
