Chinese New Year 2021: Taylor Swift, Rina Sawayama & More Celebrate

Rina Sawayama

Happy Lunar New Year! The holiday officially ushers in the year of the ox starting Friday (Feb. 12), and artists from Taylor Swift to Rina Sawayama are wishing fans a safe celebration.

Swift, who’s on the heels of her own celebration after re-recording her 2008 romantic classic “Love Story,” shared a video message on her Instagram Story. “Hey guys. I just wanted to say happy Chinese New Year. I hope everyone is staying safe and happy, and I’m wishing you all the best,” she said.

Sawayama used her platform to shine a light on the growing number of hate crimes committed against Asian-American communities, especially those targeting elderly individuals, amid the COVID-19 pandemic. She shared a GoFundMe page that plans to raise $150,000 for Bay Area, LA and NY organizations committed to empowering the community in various ways.
