Lana Del Rey says Taylor Swift has always wanted to dominate the global pop sphere.

Ahead of the opening night of the UK leg of the 34-year-old superstar's 'Eras World Tour', which kicks off at Edinburgh's Murrayfield Stadium on Friday night (07.06.24), her peers have been speaking out on her domination.

Lana, 38 - who teamed up with Taylor on the 2022 track 'Snow On The Beach - has revealed the 'All Too Well' hitmaker told her she has always wanted to be the biggest star on the planet.

The 'Video Games' hitmaker told BBC News: “She wants it.

“She’s told me so many times that she wants it more than anyone. And how amazing - she’s getting exactly what she wants.

“She’s driven, and I think it’s really paid off.”

'Escapism' hitmaker Raye, 26, said: “She is just one of those rare timeless artists who gets it right every time.

“She’s an absolute powerhouse.”

Scottish singer-songwriter KT Tunstall, 48, praised the Grammy winner for having the " chutzpah to be the boss of an enormous machine."

She said: “She’s such a fantastic role model.

“She’s got the resilience and the chutzpah to be the boss of an enormous machine, employing thousands of people. To be able to handle that and handle what’s coming at her publicly, you’ve just got to be a one-off.”

Meanwhile, amid her hectic schedule, Taylor took the time to watch her close pal, Cara Delevingne, perform in 'Cabaret' in London.

The 31-year-old actress and model - who ends her stint as Sally Bowles on Saturday (08.06.24) - shared a snap of the pair sharing a hug in her dressing room at the Kit Kat Club at the Playhouse.

She captioned her Instagram carousel: "Oh Cabaret…. I will never be able to express how I truly feel. I wanted to give myself a few days to grasp the journey I have been through in the last couple of months, but my heart and brain are still buzzing. My world has been completely turned upside down by this experience. I am not sure where I begin and Sally Bowles ends and I am okay with that… this show is unlike anything else and what makes it so special is all the people involved. Thank you for all the support, laughs, tears and memories that I will never forget. I love you. I can definitely say I have been infected with the bug… mothertucker I’m ILL! I need to get back on a stage STAT. Also can someone please tell me if the songs will ever stop playing in a loop in a head? (sic)"
