10 Secret Facts About Taylor Swift She Doesn’t Want You To Know
Love her or hate her, Taylor Swift has become an American icon and everything she does is a headline. Unlike many of today’s celebrities, she’s talented and tries to keep a wholesome image as much as possible. But is there a dark side to Taylor Swift she doesn’t want you to know about? Yes. For the first time we reveal the hidden secrets she doesn’t want you to know. Here are 10 facts about T. Swift she hoped would remain locked away forever.
1. Taylor was actually named after the late Taylor Negron because her parents were such big fans of his performance as Skeletor in the 1987 film “Masters of the Universe.” Unfortunately, Taylor Negron wasn’t in that film. They mistook him for Frank Langella.
2. When Taylor wrote the song “22,” it contained some troubling lyrics. At the end of the song, she sings, “It feels like one of those nights, we ditch the whole scene, we won’t be sleeping.” Originally the lyrics were “It feels like one of those nights we hide Devon’s body in a bog, authorities will never find him.” Oddly, Taylor’s friend Devon went missing shortly before the song was written and Taylor felt it was in bad taste to include the totally non-related, innocent lyrics. If you have any information on Devon’s whereabouts, contact your local authorities.
3. While Swift has been praised for her fresh and honest lyrics, some fans were shocked to find out that over 90 percent of her songs are actually about the show “Family Matters.” If you listen closely at the end of each album you can hear Swift softly whisper, “Where did you go, Harriet Winslow?” This is obviously a reference to Jo Marie Payton leaving in the middle of the last season of “Family Matters” because of creative differences.
4. Taylor is known for her many highly publicized dating relationships, but in a 2011 interview she revealed that her romance with Taylor Lautner was accidental. She thought she was carrying a bag of damp towels until it was later revealed to actually be Lautner. But by then the two had already been dating for three months.
5. She’s stated several times that her favorite dessert is cheesecake, but few realize she doesn’t actually mean the traditional cheesecake we know and love. Taylor’s preferred recipe is simply a Kraft Single on top of a crab cake. Technically it’s not even a dessert, but no one has ever had the heart to tell her.
6. Taylor and her family moved to Nashville when she was 14, but it wasn’t related to her music career. She had developed a troubling obsession with the television program “Nash Bridges” and threatened to run away if the family didn’t relocate. Sadly, she never realized the two were completely unrelated.
7. Swift was born in Reading, Pennsylvania, which is located three hours away from Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where Flight 93 went down on September 11, 2001. After hours of questioning from Homeland Security, it was determined that Swift had nothing to do with the terrorist attacks and she has been cleared of all charges.
8. While Swift owns beautiful properties in Tennessee, New York and California, she prefers sleeping in the back of abandoned train carts by herself. “The acoustics are amazing and sometimes, just sometimes, you can find a pot of stew sitting around from a previous tenant,” she said during a 2009 interview.
9. Some don’t realize that Swift can play several instruments, including the ukulele and the banjo. One instrument she will never play is the alto flute. She won’t say why, but many believe it’s because when she was young she saw a small pony attempt to swallow an alto flute and subsequently choke to death. The sound it made as it was dying was what first turned her on to music, while also haunting her dreams for the rest of her life.
10. Swift refuses to ever tour with Martina McBride because she believes McBride is secretly three pugs in a trench coat. When asked why she feels the singer may actually be a series of dogs in disguise, Swift told reporters, “I mean, you can’t prove she’s not.”
