Los Angeles (US): Basketball player Kobe Bryant surprised singer Taylor Swift by presenting her with a congratulatory banner for her record-setting 16 sold-out shows at the Staples Center, here. The 37-year-old Los Angeles Lakers star unveiled a championship banner for the “Bad Blood” hitmaker on his home turf, reported Billboard.
“Taylor Swift, Most Sold Out Performances,” the banner read.
