Taylor Swift turns 23 today! You’re not alone if her age surprises you. Most 23-year-olds are graduating college, getting Big Girl Jobs, and have pretty much completely abandoned their childhood diaries. She does not seem 23. But lo and behold, TSwift has managed to remain somewhat childlike like a mystical unicorn. And let’s be honest, while she might not have the best track record with men, she would totally make an awesome BFF.
She writes about all of our lives, whether or not we’d like to admit it – we’ve been singing “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” for months now. Sure we say we like the song “ironically” but could it be that homegirl just writes catchy and relate able songs? She’s a soul reader and us 20-something girls grew up with her. We were feeling her feels at fifteen, when Abigal gave up her v-card to a guy who was just looking to get some. We hit 20 with “Dear John” when we thought we knew what we were getting into. And now? We’re “feeling 22” just like TSwift.
I mean come on. She’s like the voice of our generation. Here are 17 reasons why she’s pretty much better than you.
