Taylor Swift Was A No Show At Drake’s ‘Amsterdam’ Party

Nothing comes between Taylor Swift and her music — not even her bubbly new acting role.

Swift returns to the big screen in the new movie ‘Amsterdam’. But we’re told the pop star had to skip the New York premiere on Sunday because she’s being honored for her music in Nashville, Tennessee.

The Nashville Songwriters Association International will present Swift (who started out as a country artist, of course) with the prestigious Songwriter-Artist of the Decade award on Tuesday. But it’s such a big deal in music circles that she had to stay in town to prepare and couldn’t even come to New York two days before the ceremony to attend the premiere of her big movie, which was directed by David O. Russell and also stars Christian Bale, John David Washington, Margot Robbie, Chris Rock, Mike Myers and more.

Rapper Drake – who is a producer on the film – introduced the film at its Sunday premiere, but he had started celebrating early the night before. Sources told us he threw an unofficial premiere party late Saturday night at Richie Akiva’s members club The Ned. And despite erroneous reports of Swift partying into the wee hours, we were told she was instead getting ready for her big night and was actually nowhere near the Big Apple.

A source described the late night soiree as an “impromptu celebration” for the film that took place in the club’s so-called “Magic Room”. DJ Rachel Winters kicked off the evening spinning tunes before Drake’s personal deejays took over.

Kevin Durant hung out at a VIP table with Drake and we hear that Kristen Stewart and Ashley Benson also hung out on the roof of the club before joining Drake’s bash. Drake left around 3:30 am. “with his security,” a spy told us.

We think Drake went out before closing to make up for halftime for the big premiere at Alice Tully Hall on Sunday. He and DreamCrew later hosted the official after party at Zero Bond.

Spies told us he and Rami Malek were “the last ones on the dance floor,” while Baz Luhrmann and Leonardo DiCaprio were “talking around the corner.”

“The entire event was a lavish affair, complete with casino games,” the source said.

We hear that Drake and his Stake online casino are even giving away $150,000 in prizes to attendees.

Taylor, you missed it!
