The post continued:
Someone knocked on the door and said, ‘I’ve got a girl named Taylor, and she’d like to come in and sing for you.’ I said, -Of course!!!-‘
Britney, 41, continued:
“He comes in and she’s singing a beautiful song with the guitar. I thought wow, she is amazing!!! We took a photo and later she became the most famous pop girl of our generation. He plays stadiums so well, I prefer his videos to movies any time. Awesome!!! A woman in love’.
