10 Things You Didn't Know About Taylor Swift

Oct 23, 2012 -- 5:44am



Taylor Swift is permeating the media this week promoting her album"Red" . . . so why not test your Taylor trivia with the "10 Things You Didn't Know About Taylor Swift".  A couple of them actually surprised me.



#1.) She's an award-winning poet.


In the fourth grade, Taylor's poem "Monster In My Closet" placed first in a national poetry contest.  Here's the poem:  "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?"



#2.)  Taylor's dad owns 3% of her record label.


He was an early investor in Big Machine Records.



#3.)  Taylor's brother Austin is a student at Vanderbilt University.


He transferred from Notre Dame.



#4.) The Dixie Chicks were a major influence.


There are others . . . but she ranks the Chicks way up there.



#5.)  She wrote a novel when she was 12.


It's 350 pages and it's DONE. 



#6.)  Taylor's grandmother on her mom's side was an opera singer.


Taylor's grandma Marjorie Finlay was an "accomplished opera singer" . . . and Taylor looks EXACTLY like her.  I swear.




#7.)   Her first job involved tons of bugs.


She knocked praying mantis pods out of trees on her family's Christmas tree farm.



#8.)  Taylor Swift was the first "Saturday Night Live" host to ever write their own monologue.


It was song she wrote called "My Monologue Song".



#9.) The thought of a real tattoo actually terrifies her.



#10.) She's sort of blind.


When she's not wearing glasses, she's wearing contact lenses.
