Southern fans meet Taylor Swift
Two Invercargill girls had one of their dreams come true when they got to meet one of pop music's biggest superstars.
Brydie Morton, 8, convinced her mum to buy tickets to Taylor Swift's concert in Auckland last month.
With them went Brydie's aunt Kerri Anne McKenzie and cousin Charlotte McKenzie, 13.
Before travelling to Auckland for the show, Brydie wrote to Swift.
''I drew her some pictures and told her I was her biggest fan, and was travelling from one end of the country to the other to go to her concert,'' Brydie said.
Her mum received an email from Swift's management team, thanking Brydie for the letter and offering backstage passes for her and her family.
''We didn't tell the girls, because we didn't know exactly what it meant, and didn't want them to be disappointed,'' Mrs Morton said.
Turns out the girls got to meet Swift backstage.
They only had about a minute with her, where they had a picture taken, and a brief chat.
''She said 'I'll try to put on a good show because you've come such a long way','' Charlotte said.
The girls didn't say much to Swift though.
Both agree they were completely starstruck.When asked whether they would like to see another Taylor Swift concert, the girls were unanimous.
