Im your biggest fan and I hope you can sign this for me one day, Jacobsays in the clip while holding Swift’s 1989 album. I hope we can jam and I can play something for you and it goes something like this.
“I HAVE to give you a hug for that beautiful piano medley you did! Please come to a show on my tour and say hi to me? My treat,” shetweeted on Wednesday.
