At the tender age of (almost) 26, Taylor Swift has more awards than pretty much anyone on earth, an enviable girl squad and a disarmingly humble personality. While none of that is a revelation, we bet there are still some things you don’t know about her. In honor of her birthday, we’re breaking down some surprising facts about the girl next door.
1. She Sources New Talent Like A Pro
While she's got a multitude of heavy-hitting guest performers who join her onstage, Taylor also has an insane knack for discovering and appreciating new artists. She's introduced acts like Alessia Cara, Troye Sivan, The 1975 and Rachel Platten to her substantial social media following.
2. She's Got A Life-Size Birdcage
She is quite the interior designer, taking a very hands-on approach to decorating each of her many residences. Topiary rabbits aside, her Nashville penthouse is reported to have a human-size, pillow-lined birdcage with views of the city. Because why not?
3. She'd Rather Be Watching Friends
Despite a jet-set lifestyle and more than a few glamorous connections, Taylor is more likely to be found at home, binge-watching the cult '90s sitcom, than raging on the nightlife circuit.
4. She's A Fan Of The Mid Heel
5. She's A Queen In The Kitchen
She may not have her own line of cookies like bestie Karlie Kloss (yet), but the singer is an adept baker. She shares her favorite recipes on her Tumblr. (Side note: Does this girl ever sleep?)
