Taylor Swift kicked off her Reputation world tour concert last night in Glendale, Arizona, and it was a true 2+ hour extravaganza. There were about eight costume changes and tweaks, a stage featuring a giant snake, and 24 songs performed by Swift. Swift’s friends and family were in the crowd, along with her boyfriend Joe Alwyn, whom many of the Reputation love songs she sang were seemingly about. Alwyn tried to be a little more discreet, standing with his baseball cap while Swift sang “Gorgeous” apparently pointed at him. A fan got footage:

Swift had several moments with the crowd. While she made headlines for her speech about Kim Kardashian, she also talked about why she took time last year to be out of the spotlight and the lesson she took from that experience.

“I decided it was really important for me to figure out how I would be and what my life would be like if I didn’t have a spotlight on me all the time,” she said via fans on Twitter. “Turned out it was really, really important for me, but I really did miss you guys!”

Her full speech on Kardashian and why she embraced the snake was as follows:

“A couple of years ago, someone called me a snake on social media and it caught on. And then a lot of people called me a lot of names on social media. And I went through some really low times for a while because of it. I went through some times when I didn’t know if I was going to get to do this anymore and I guess the snakes, I wanted to send a message to you guys that if someone uses name-calling to bully you on social media and even if a lot of people jump on board with it, that doesn’t have to defeat you. It can strengthen you instead. And I think something that came out of it that was good is that I learned a really important lesson that I’ve been telling you from the stage for 10 years, but I haven’t been able to learn myself, which has to do with how much you value your reputation. And I think that the lesson is that you shouldn’t care so much if you feel misunderstood by a lot of people who don’t know you as long as you feel understood by the people who do show up for you and the people who see you as a human being. So thank you, thank you, thank you for taking the time to get to know me, for sticking up for me, for seeing me as a human being.”
