Taylor Swift Drinks Beer, Cheers New Hometown at a N.Y. Knicks Game


Taylor Swift enjoys a beer courtside.

After relentlessly promoting her new album 1989, Taylor Swift deserves a bit of a break! The singer is projected to once again break the 1 million mark in album sales, and no NYC victory lap is complete without a stop at Madison Square Garden.

Swift let loose with her bestie, supermodel Karlie Kloss, at Wednesday night's Knicks game against the Chicago Bulls in New York's most famous arena, where she was snapped cheering and enjoying a beer courtside.

Yes, this is Taylor Swift boozing it up.

The singer's eventful night also included getting caught adorably flirting with a Knicks player, and sitting by Ben Stiller and his son Quinlin, 9.

"Karlie and I had the time of our lives at the Knicks game tonight," she posted on her Instagram Wednesday.

Two players we know Taylor definitely cheered on are Amar'e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony, who hilariously assisted the lanky, 5'10" star learn to dunk.

But it's not all photo ops and fun for Taylor in her new hometown -- she's also pledged to donate proceeds from the song "Welcome to New York" to local schools.
