Taylor Swift’s fourth studio album, Red, has been certified triple platinum by the RIAA for three million U.S. shipments.

International sales have exceeded 1 million units to date, pushing the singer’s overall worldwide numbers past 26 million albums and 75 million song downloads.

For Swift’s North American tour, tickets continue to be a hot commodity, having sold-out Philadelphia’s July 20 Lincoln Financial Field stop in five minutes. Due to the demand, an additional date at the stadium has been added for the night prior (7/19). A complete listing of tour dates and on-sale information, is available here.

On Monday (12/3), Swift received The Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights’ Ripple of Hope Award in New York, recognizing her international leadership for social change. Twenty-two-year-old Swift is the youngest winner of the prestigious award, alongside other recipients Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Bono and George Clooney.

Tonight, Swift will co-host The GRAMMY Nominations Concert Live!! – Countdown to Music’s Biggest Night, with LL Cool J, airing from Nashville at 9 p.m. CT on CBS. At the end of the year (12/31), she will headline New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2013, live from Time Square in New York.
