Taylor Swift Sets a New Record at the Staples Center

Move over Madonna, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake! Taylor Swift has arrived and she’s taken over a major record previously held by all of those famous pop stars.

After her fourth 2013 Red Tour show at the famed Staples Center in Los Angeles — slated for this Saturday (Aug. 24) —  the singer will have logged 11 sellouts total, the most of any artist at that venue besides Latin pop group Mana.

The L.A. Times reports that Swift passed Madonna and Timberlake, who each had seven capacity shows, after show Monday (Aug. 19). After Tuesday’s concert, she passed Spears, who had logged eight sellouts. Swift has two more sold-out shows on the schedule — the aforementioned Aug. 24 show, as well as Friday (Aug. 23).

Needless to say, those are some pretty impressive names that Swift cruised ahead of. Four sellouts in Los Angeles is huge, but to pass popular music icons like those puts the pop-country crossover singer on a whole other level.

Selling out the Staples Center four more times on one tour is impressive, but something tells us that Swift may nab a 12th, 13th and 14th sellout in the future, making that honor all her own.
