She’s grown up right before our eyes, and this December, Taylor Swift will celebrate a major milestone by turning 21. While that means she can legally enter a nightclub, it also means that she’ll get to party however she pleases. And this year, Swift plans to pay homage to the season with a Christmas-themed birthday bash.
“The plans for the 21st birthday probably are going to be winter-themed,” she revealed to MTV News. “I love winter. I love Christmas, and my birthday is December 13.”
Swift recalled having many Christmas-themed birthday parties growing up, but this one, she says, might be a bit more adult. “You know, when I was a little kid and I was growing up, they’d always have a Santa Claus guy show up and take everybody’s wishes or what they wanted for Christmas. I’m not gonna do that, but there’ll definitely be lots of Christmas-themed things.” So will that include some spiked eggnog? “Well, you know, legally, I could,” she teased.
In an interview with Ladies’ Home Journal, Swift target="_blank">dished a bit more about her big plans. “Maybe I’ll have a glass of wine — but nothing too hard-core for me. I’ve never had the burning desire to drink,” she said. “I need to be in control of what I say, and if I drank, I’d stress out about saying the wrong thing at the wrong time.”
Before her big birthday, Swift will release her new album, Speak Now, which is due on Monday. And on the album, she isn’t shy about calling out guys . “It’s like, this is album number three. You guys have had fair warning!” she joked, adding, “If I continue to write music about my life and my life is always changing, then my music is always changing.”
