Spotted: Taylor Swift Visits Jolly Old England

Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.

Perhaps Taylor Swift's most remarkable accomplishment — and she has notched many over the course of her still-young career — is the fact that she has international appeal. As big as country music is in the United States, it doesn't translate well in international markets. But Swift's songs are truly universal and her melodies transcend language, which is why she is one of the few country artists who can sell out shows in Europe. She played a killer show in Madrid, Spain over the weekend, and over the next week she'll tear through the United Kingdom (her next stop is in Birmingham, England on Tuesday, March 22). She was seen leaving her hotel in London on Monday (March 21), hopefully taking in the best of British culture (or at least a hearty meal at a chip shop).

Swift wasn't the only star traveling the world, as Taylor Momsen was seen making her way around Paris and Hilary Duff paid a visit to Bethune Elementary School in Atlanta as a part of the "Blessings in a Backpack" program.
