OFFSTAGE: Taylor Swift Is So 22 Right Now

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Right after midnight, when today (Dec. 13) had just begun, Taylor Swift tweeted, “I’m so 22 right now.” And before that, she’d even given her 9.7 million followers a heads-up on the upcoming birthday when she took to Twitter to say, “CMT Artists of the Year premieres tomorrow, December 13th, at 9/8c. #CMTAOTY. Also on the schedule for tomorrow is me turning 22.” Now that her tour is over, it seems like Swift has some downtime to do regular 22-year-old things. Like adopt kittens, get haircuts and go crazy at Williams-Sonoma, where she stocked up on ginger molasses cookie mix, hot chocolate mix and peppermint cremes. Somebody’s going to have a happy birthday and a merry Christmas. Send her your own very best b’day wishes in the comments section below.
