A Day in the Life:
Taylor Swift is a woman of many talents. As a world famous singer-songwriter, accomplished businesswoman, and fitness guru, Swift has risen to become one of the world’s most renowned celebrities.

Whether she is playing with her two cats, Skyping with celebrities that we could only imagine meeting in person, or meeting fans, she remains constantly busy. Having countless commitments to balance at once, Taylor Swift understands the importance of maximizing her day.
“To me, Fearless is not the absence of fear. It’s not being completely unafraid. To me, Fearless is having fears. Fearless is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, Fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death.”

“For me, running is about blasting a whole bunch of new songs and running to the beat. It’s also good because it makes me find a gym wherever I am.”

If you know Taylor Swift, you know she loves brunch. Often, she invites a few of her closest friends to visit one of the many trendy eateries in New York City.

This is what Swift lives for. She says being on stage and sharing her music with fans is her favorite part of the day.

“Fans are my favorite thing in the world. I’ve never been the type of artist who has that line drawn between their friends and their fans. The line’s always been really blurred for me. I’ll hang out with them after the show. I’ll hang out with them before the show. If I see them in the mall, I’ll stand there and talk to them for 10 minutes.”
1:30 AM: Go to Sleep
After an exhausting day filled with time with friends and family, meeting fans, exercising, and performing, Swift is more than ready for bed. She has become accustomed to these late nights. It’s now time for her to get rest so she is prepared for another productive day!
