Taylor Swifts' ninth studio album evermore has been out for less than 24 hours and it's already the internet's latest obsession. The folklore sister record sparked conversations from all corners of society, including from some of Hollywood's elite.

A number of celebrities commented on Swift's latest album and expressed their plans to play the album all day long. From admiration of folklore to love of evermore's content, praise for Swift was not difficult to find, even from some of the most successful netizens.

Hayley Williams

The Paramore front-woman Williams was one of the first celebrities to give an official critique of Swift's evermore via Twitter. She regarded it as one of the best albums Swift has ever made. "I am pretty sure evermore is the f****n coolest album Taylor has ever made," tweeted Williams

Meghan McCain

Co-host of The View McCain hadn't listened to evermore before she weighed in. Instead, the Republican commentator explained Swift's July release, folklore, was monumental in defining her year. evermore, McCain implied, would follow suit.

Folklore was the soundtrack that soothed my pandemic pregnancy nerves ~ and now I sing it to my daughter Liberty in her nursery. I can't even describe how elated I am there will be a sister album to what I consider the best and most healing music of 2020. Congratulations Taylor!

Reese Witherspoon

The Legally Blonde star apparently gave up her plans on Friday to spend time with evermore. We have to say, Witherspoon's lazy day sounds like the best way to indulge in the album.

If you need me today I’ll be in my room listening to @taylorswift13’s new #evermore album 🎶

The Chicks

Swift's former collaborators, the Chicks, were quick to point out a girl-power anthem on evermore. Known for "Goodbye Earl," the country band's approval of "no body, no crime," featuring HAIM, makes it a certified revenge bop.

Sisters before misters. 💕 @taylorswift13 @HAIMtheband #goodbyeearl #nobodynocrime #evermorealbum

Lauren Mayberry

Chvrches lead Mayberry showed off her Swift skills before evermore was released. In a video, which was liked on Twitter by Swift, the singer identified some of Swift's biggest hits and lesser-known anthems with impressive accuracy.

In honour of impending new @taylorswift13, here is me a while ago at my super-stan best. The whole video is 4 minutes long 🤦🏻‍♀️ Probably my greatest achievement of 2020...

Tegan and Sara

In a tweet, musical duo Tegan and Sara expressed their honest feelings toward evermore immediately after the album's release, and to say the least, it's relatable.

Me listening to new @taylorswift13

Kristin Chenoweth

Another musical legend, Chenoweth, whose Broadway career has led her into the Hollywood spotlight, praised Swift for the newest release. Before evermore dropped, Chenoweth shared her anticipation. The actor also issued a cryptic tweet that made some fans wonder if Chenoweth has plans for a folklore tribute of some kind.

I’ve got goosebumps!!!!!!! We’re ready, Taylor. @taylorswift13 #evermorealbum #evermore

You’ll find out. Soon

While HAIM may be biased, considering it is featured on the album, the trio of sisters applauded Swift for her songwriting capabilities in a Reels video on Instagram. They even gave an ode to Olive Garden, as mentioned in their duet "no body, no crime."

Olive Garden

Speaking of Olive Garden, the Italian restaurant chain didn't let their mention go unnoticed, either. In a series of tweets, the eatery made puns with the word evermore while praising Swift's ninth album.

We’re in love with @taylorswift13 #evermore than we thought we were.

Kiernan Shipka

Netflix's Sabrina star didn't have too much to say about evermore—beyond the very relatable excitement, she tweeted as the album released. Hilariously, one of Shipka's last tweets praised folklore pretty much the same way in July.

EVERMORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! @taylorswift13

13 Reasons Why actor and Wallows singer Minnette's short but sweet tweet summarized the basic feelings of the internet on Thursday after Swift dropped the album news on her fans abruptly.
