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. (–She only wrote it to make the rest of us feel like underachievers.)

#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. (–Check out side-by-side photos.) (Zap2It)
