Taylor Swift Turns 21!

MTV News takes a look at how singer will celebrate milestone birthday.

2010 has been a massive year for Taylor Swift, who took home a number of awards, appeared in the blockbuster romantic comedy “Valentine’s Day,” and scored a chart-topping album with Speak Now .

And Monday (December 13), the pop-country chanteuse will officially turn 21 years old. And while we don’t know what boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal might be getting her, we do have some idea what she might be doing on the big day.

With her birthday so close to Christmas, Swift revealed to MTV News back in October that she had big plans for the milestone birthday. She explained, “The plans for the 21st birthday probably are going to be winter-themed. I love winter. I love Christmas.”

Swift, who admits she’s not much of a party girl, will make sure the party is focused more on the season than her.

“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,” she revealed.

So, will that include some spiked eggnog? “Well, you know, legally, I could,” she teased.

In an interview with People.com, she said she even has the perfect place for the party. “I’d really like to have it in my condo,” she explained about throwing the bash in Nashville. “I think that would be wonderful.”

While turning 21 means Swift can legally drink alcohol, that’s not the main reason she’s excited about the milestone birthday.

“It’ll be cool that I’ll be able to go to a lot of concerts that my friends always go to and I sit at home because it’s 21 and over,” she said. “Other than that, I don’t think I’m going to all of a sudden start being in love with the idea of going to a club.”

So, why doesn’t Swift plan on partying too hard?

“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 told Ladies Home Journal. “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.”
