Taylor Swift's girl squad sends birthday wishes

TAYLOR Swift's girl squad has paid tribute to her on her 26th birthday.

The 'Shake It Off' hitmaker turned 26 on Sunday (13.12.15) and to celebrate, some of her closest pals including Selena Gomez and Jaime King, took to social media to share sweet messages.

Selena posted a picture of them together and wrote on Instagram: "I don't know life without you Taylor. Happy birthday!"

And 'Hart of Dixie' actress Jaime shared a picture she took of Taylor and penned an emotional message.

She wrote: "Dear Tay- Tomorrow is your birthday and I will be in the air. This picture I took of you brings back the fondest of memories. It captures all of your beauty that I know, that the world knows, in one photograph. You have the uncanny ability to just get straight into the Soul's of us all in one shot. With your music, you grab the hearts of countless hearts & don't let go. As my sister, with your irresistible enthusiasm, unbeatable passion and true honesty, feels like home.

"To have changed the perception of female friendships (even in the smallest way) because somehow, in this crazy world where women want to hurt each other, we have a thoughtful group of friends where we have chosen to love each other through it all, and support our peers along the way & with open arms you bring this sisterhood to life Intimately and sincerely, I love you, I am profoundly proud of you, your Light is a rare and brilliant gift. Happy Birthday!!! (Your always sensitive, expository and teary eyed friend;) xo Jaime @taylorswift (sic)."

Taylor - who has jetted back to Los Angeles after wrapping up her '1989' world tour - marked her birthday by posting a picture of herself as a child with the caption: "Today I begin my 26th year of freaking out over stuff."
