Taylor Swift is feeling 24! At least, the singer is celebrating her 24th birthday this week.
To celebrate, we’re counting down our favorite moments from Taylor in 2013:
1. She’s Got Us Feeling “22”
First and foremost, we love Taylor for her music. Released in March, her biggest hit of 2013 was “22,” and the music video matched the song in greatness. Wearing a shirt that reads “Not a lot going on at the moment,” Taylor left the boys behind to party with her girls. They go to the beach, hang out by the pool and gorge on birthday cake, and just like the singer’s fans, they look like they’re having a blast.
2. She’s Not Afraid of Karaoke
One of the most surprising moments from Taylor came when she met Prince William for the first time last month. While meeting the royal family is usually a statement is usually a stately affair, TSwift, the prince and Jon Bon Jovi teamed up for a lively rendition of Bon Jovi’s “Living’ on a Prayer.” Clearly a true fan, she got adorably animated while chiming in with the chorus before breaking out her dance moves.
3. She’s “Sweeter Than Fiction”
Taylor may not have released a new album in 2013, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a good year for her musically. In addition to dropping a number of hit singles from “Red,” she also debuted a new track called “Sweeter Than Fiction” for a British film called “One Chance.” Written with fun.’s Jack Antonoff, it’s easily one of the “sweetest” songs off a movie soundtrack this year.
4. She’s a “Giver”
For as talented as she is as a singer, our girl hasn’t had a perfect track record in the acting biz. That said, she’s prepared to show us all up with her role of Rosemary in the highly-anticipated film adaptation of “The Giver” opposite Brenton Thwaites and Katie Holmes. Filming now in South Africa, we’re counting down the days until the film’s August 2014 release to see Taylor take on this meaty dramatic role.
5. She’s Got a Passion for Fashion
Despite being bullied during her formative years, Taylor has turned out to be a tall, confident knockout. While Victoria’s Secret model Jessica Hart might beg to differ, the “Red” singer more than held her own on stage at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show that aired earlier this month. As she rocked out to “I Knew You Were Trouble” and wore a British flag-inspired dress, Taylor truly stole the show.
