Taylor Swift, one of country music's biggest stars, is celebrating her 21st birthday today. As the recording artist and all around sweetheart turns this rite of passage, Swift has many reasons to celebrate. Swift has sold multi-platinum records, won Grammys, topped Billboard's music charts, dabbled in acting, donates her time and resources to charity, and has even found a new beau: actor Jake Gyllenhaal.
Swift told Us Weekly precisely how she intends to celebrate her twenty first birthday. Swift stated she wouldn't partake in a booze fueled bacchanal like most of her peers. Instead, Swift opted for a "Christmas themed birthday" as she told US because she loves "Christmas as much as my birthday. Combining the two just seems like the perfect festivity."
Happy Birthday, Taylor!
