Swift says her birthday will be 'a quiet one this year'

TAYLOR Swift said she's 'stoked' to have been able to take her crew and band on a vacation on Hamilton Island.

The music superstar also confirmed she intends to celebrate her birthday 'quietly' this year, she said on social media.


"My birthday isn't for two weeks and it will be a quiet one this year," she said on her Instagram account.

"So stoked to be able to take my band and crew on a vacation at the end of a long and wonderful tour.

"For all their hard work this year they really deserve it."

She thanked Hamilton Island for taking care of her crew and band - all 125.

It's believed Swift will perform for her fans today on the island.

Media has been banned from Hamilton Island following strict security measures.

There were reports earlier in the week that she might celebrate her birthday on the island with her famous friends including Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran.
