Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift is so popular, she's sold out more shows at The Staples Center in Los Angeles than any other recording artist.

To mark her achievement, the venue's Senior Vice President and General Manager Lee Zeidman presented the singer with a giant picture frame containing records, her albums covers, "Taylor Swift" in huge sparkling letters as well as "11 Record Breaking Sold Out Shows." She also received a Tiffany cuff bracelet.

The former record holder was Britney Spears, who has sold out eight shows at the Staples Center.

Swift gave back to her fans by offering 20 college students free tickets to her show on the first night of her L.A. run. The students are enrolled in the Recording Academy's GrammyU program.

The pop star made news earlier this week by poking fun at the now infamous Kanye West microphone-grabbing incident from the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

She made some jam for her tourmate Ed Sheeran with a label that read: "Yo Ed- I'm really happy 4 you and I'm gonna let u finish but this is the best JAM OF ALL TIME - T" she wrote.

She is nominated for Best Female Video and Video of the Year at this year's VMAs, which air on Sunday.
