​Taylor Swift shares adorable throwback Thursday photo celebrating ‘1989’

Not since 2002 has an album sold as many copies as Taylor Swift’s 1989. To celebrate, the singer posted a throwback Thursday photo of herself from that year on Instagram – and 12-year-old Taylor couldn't be cuter!

Sporting her wavy blond hair in trendy cornrows, the baby-faced middle schooler had no way of knowing the success that lay ahead of her - and the milestone she'd achieve more than a decade later.

The 2002 album in question is Eminem’s The Eminem Show, which sold more than 1.3 million copies in its second week. To compare, 1989 has sold more than 1.2 million copies its first week – and it’s still climbing the charts.

Meanwhile, the 24-year-old pop star has revealed her 2015 world tour dates for the now-platinum album, which will include Canadian stops in Montreal, Ottawa, Vancouver, Edmonton and Toronto.

Taylor isn’t the only cutie-patootie celebrity who’s shared a throwback Thursday snap recently. Scroll through the gallery below to see more vintage snaps of your favourite stars!
