Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai joked in a recent interview that she deserves free concert tickets of both Taylor Swift and Beyonce.
During Saturday's episode of NPR's 'Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me', host Josh Gondelman asked Ms Yousafzai to imagine that her Nobel Prize had come with free concert tickets, but she would have to choose between Taylor Swift and Beyonce. To this, the 25-year-old activist managed to give an answer which left both parties happy.
"So when I was little, I used to, like, sing the "Love Story" song together with my friends. So that was like one of the first two songs we started singing back in Pakistan," Ms Yousafzai said, adding, "And Beyonce, I mean, she's a legend, so I would want both tickets. I have the Nobel Peace Prize and I demand both."
Moreover, when a Twitter account tweeted about her answer, the 25-year-old reacted by saying, "I would never want any bad blood between us".

When asked how she felt after knowing she had won the Nobel Peace Prize, she said that it was a "surreal moment" as it was not just about her but it was all the children who deserve to be heard.
