We know Taylor just announced her fourth album, Red, will be available October 22nd. We also know that the first single off the album is called, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”. But there are probably a few things you may not know about her.
1. She’s a crime solver
Well, she actually likes WATCHING crime shows on tv. She says if she wasn’t a musician, she’d pursue a career as a forensic detective. She even starred on a 2008 episode of the television show, “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.”
2. She makes scents out of it
Taylor loves perfumes and often sprays different fragrances that she used to wear to bring back old memories. Abercrombie 8 brings back nostalgic memories of her freshman year of high school and her first boyfriend.
3. Another nostalgic side to her
Taylor loves 1940s and 1950s inspired bathing suits.
4. She’s blind as a bat
Taylor admits she’s got really bad eyesight. She bought a pair of glasses that she called the ugliest pair of glasses you’ll ever see in your life… She figured no one was going to buy them so she says she had to have them.
5. She’s NOT a coffee addict
Somehow, someway Taylor gets by without coffee in the morning.
6. She loves to express herself on a canvas
You may not know this, but Taylor says she loves to paint. She says whenever she has downtime, whenever she’s at home, she’ll turn off all the lights in the room and light candles, listen to music and paint. She says she’ll send the pictures to radio programmers or people like that.
7. Is a big fan of….
Hibachi. Does Taylor have a hibachi grill in her kitchen? Absolutely!
8. She’s a Pennsylvania girl
She is from Wyomissing, Pennsylvania. It’s also the hometown of former reality-dad, Jon Gosselin.
9. She’s also quite the poet
In fourth grade, Taylor won a national poetry contest with a poem called, “Monster in My Closet”. The first three lines read: “There’s a monster in my closet and I don’t know what to do/Have you ever seen him?/Has he ever pounced on you?”
10. Not immune to heartbreak
Joe Jonas broke up with Taylor in 27 seconds over the phone. Welcome to the club Taylor.
Something else that’s interesting about Taylor. It was a computer repairman showed her how to play three chords on a guitar, which actually prompted her interest in learning how to play.
