Taylor Swift has had a fulfilling year: this year was the first time she released an album she owned outright. It came to light this year shortly before Swift was set for her August release of her seventh studio album, Lover, that Scooter Braun, famous manager to clients such as Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber, had purchased her masters.

Taylor made a lengthy statement regarding her old record label executive, Scott Borchetta and Braun himself, saying Braun was the “last” person she thought Scott would sell them to because they only had “negative” conversations about Braun. Swift has been privately battling for the rights to her music with Braun, because of his ability to control what songs she sings or not. With so much going on regarding her biggest passion, Taylor took time to fly to Japan to promote her album and enjoy her fans.

In the first post to social media, Swift can be seen taking a selfie in front of a bunch of fish aquariums captioning it, “Have arrived in the land of cat cafes and external cuteness TOKYO HI. I’m off to stare into pastel aquariums and hug all the people CAN”T WAIT TO SEE YOU GUYS LATER.”

Swift also posted a picture of herself posing in a sequined jumpsuit, clearly feeling herself evident in the sassy hand on the hip. She thanked “all the moms” who take pictures of their “adult daughters” because “they are feeling their outfit.”

Swift later posted pictures at a promotional event with her fans for Lover where fans looked so ecstatic to see her, and she looked equally as happy to be there.
