The "Shake it off" singer was overwhelmed when the basketball player Kobe Bryant came out on stage to commemorate the Swift's achievement.

The singer was performing here on Saturday night when Los Angeles Lakers superstars Kobe Bryant came out on stage, saying that "16 sold out shows at the Staples Centre is the most of any artist ever", reports mirror.co.uk.

The crowd was screaming and Swift could barely contain her excitement as a banner dropped from the rafters to mark the occasion.

Swift even posted an image of the banner on photo-sharing site Instagram. "The banners up at Staples Center right now because WHAT IS LIFE EVEN (sic)," she wrote.
