Listen to Taylor Swift Radio on iHeartRadio

Taylor Swift Radio

Taylor Swift was honored at the Billboard Women in Music Awards this morning with fellow iHeartRadio Jingle Ball performers Charli XCX, Iggy Azalea and Ariana Grande... and she got an extra special surprise when Aretha Franklin sang happy birthday to her in honor of her 25th birthday!

"She did it, she fully went for it!" Taylor gushed to Elvis Duran backstage at iHeartRadio Jingle Ball hosted by Z100 New York. "I wanted to hug her, like, 'til the end of time. I had to stop through or I would've gotten a restraining order."

Dang - even her response to the Queen of Soul is perfect...just like the rest of her.
