She may not be 22 anymore, but she’s still America’s Sweetheart.
With four best-selling albums under her belt, we wouldn’t be surprised if Taylor Swift decided to take a break. Alas, she’s as hardworking as they get as the 24-year-old singer simultaneously announced and then dropped the first single and music video, titled “Shake It Off,” from her fifth studio album, 1989.
In honour of all the great pop hits she’ll surely release in the coming years, Taylor Swift is this week’s Woman Crush Wednesday!
Here’s just a few reasons why she’s crush-worthy:
She’s A Talented Musician
With four number one albums, three tours and four Grammy awards sitting on her mantle, it’s no surprise that Taylor Swift knows how to rock out with the best of them. She can sing, play the guitar, the piano, the ukelele… she can do it all.
While many artists simple cover other songs during performances, Swift mashes them up with a of her own. Just check out how amazing she is when she mashes up her own tune “You’re Not Sorry” with Justin Timberlake’s “What Goes Around”:
She Can Act
Truthfully, Taylor hasn’t had many acting gigs but she was great in the few she did manage to land. From a role opposite her then-boyfriend Taylor Lautner in Valentine’s Day to lending her voice to The Lorax, we definitely give her props for going beyond her comfort zone!
Here’s just a snippet of Taylor’s role in The Giver:
She’s not America’s Sweetheart for nothing. When it comes to her Swifites, Taylor will do anything to meet them, including pushing a security guard away from her fans.
Taylor even surprised one lucky Swiftie at a bridal shower!
Taylor also topped DoSomething.ORG‘s Top 20 Celebs Gone Good 2013 list for a second year in a row! Among her many charitable acts, she also donated $100,000 to the Nashville Symphony in honour of her 24th birthday.
Now that’s something to look up to!
Her Love For Cats
We here at ANDPOP love cats, so it’s safe to assume we get excited for every single one of Taylor’s cat updates.
She even starts off her day by saying “Good Morning” to all her fans with her cat by her side:
Just look at how adorbz Taylor and her second cat Olivia Benson are:
BFFLz w/ Everyone
We always love it when our favourite celebs are friends with each other. And thanks to Taylor’s sweet nature, it’s no wonder why she’s BFFLs with every celeb possible. Her friend circle includes fellow pop stars (Selena Gomez), Oscar winners (Jennifer Lawrence), cultural juggernauts (Lena Dunham), and even supermodels (Karlie Kloss).
Here’s just a couple of photos of her famous friends:
Just how cute are Lorde and Taylor baking together?!
Ed Sheeran, Taylor, and CATS?! This is what dreams are made of.

WE’RE SO JEALOUS.
You can easily say Taylor has her own, unique style. Whether it be rocking a simple tees and jeans, or a cute dress, Swift knows how to style each outfit to make it her own.
Oh, Taylor. We knew you would be trouble when you walked in, but in the best way possible!
