Yes, one of them is a kangaroo.

Congratulations are in order for Taylor Swift this morning, as she racked up a slew of Grammy nominations for her album 1989. Swift’s seven nominations include nods for album, record and song of the year. After her showstopping teal Elie Saab gown at this year’s Grammy Awards ceremony, we can’t wait to see what she chooses for the 2016 ceremony as a nominee.

In other Swift news, while in Australia for the latest stop on her 1989 world tour the star has added a new member to her squad, according to Instagram. Blake Lively, also in the country shooting scenes for her upcoming movie, The Shallows, visited a theme park in Queensland with Swift, who posted an exuberant photo with her new pal wearing their summer-friendly short shorts (the current season down under) — but not before posting images with a koala, a cockatoo and a kangaroo.

I didn't know 'kangaroo selfies' were a thing. But they are and this is one.
