OFFSTAGE: Taylor Swift: The Cosmo Quiz

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

Taylor Swift is on the cover of the December Cosmopolitan. But if you don’t want to buy the semi-racy magazine, I’ll tell you almost everything you need to know from Swift’s handwritten 10-question Cosmo Quiz. Like how, if her house was on fire and she could only save one thing, it would be her cat Meredith. “She’s the only one who understands me. And she’s so funny-looking,” Swift wrote. And how she loves a lot of things about being world famous, such as having people know her wherever she goes. “I love it. Can’t lie,” she said. And how it was Jay Leno who gave her the best relationship advice: “It’s easy. Just marry your conscience. Marry the one who makes you want to be a better person,” she said he told her. As for the craziest thing she’s ever done for love? Swift just wrote “Yet to happen.”

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
