OFFSTAGE: Taylor Swift Takes London

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

So where did Taylor Swift go when she was in London this week? I think the better question is, “Where didn’t she go?” It seems like she hit every hot spot in the city — the zoo (in jeans and a wine-colored duffel coat) and some cool shops like Alice’s and Charbonnel et Walker on Portobello Road (in a little skirt embellished with kittens). And, E! is reporting she wandered through Hyde Park looking pretty as a picture under her umbrella on a gloomy, rainy, foggy day. She visited the Princess Diana Memorial Fountain. No one seems to know for sure why Swift is across the pond. Maybe meeting with the producers who want her to star in their Les Misérables film. Maybe not. I’m just happy she found some down time to take in some tourist attractions. And because the curiosity is killing me, I’m dying to know what she was listening to on her iPod while she was out and about.
