It’s Taylor Swift’s 21st birthday today, but don’t expect any paparazzi shots of the quintessential girl-next-door getting tipsy on next week’s tabloid cover.
“I didn’t want it to be a crazy club thing,” Swift told Access Hollywood last week. “I just want it to be very me, and the ‘me’ thing to do would be to have a Christmas birthday party.”
December babies often get snubbed with dual holiday/birthday celebrations, but Swift said she looks on the bright side – after all, she would much rather give than receive.
“I love having, like, a birthday-themed Christmas party so people can give each other presents at my birthday party so it’s not so much like a spotlight [on me]," she said.
And if her tweets yesterday are any indication, the country singer is following through on her low-key party plans.
"Snowflakes are flurrying down outside, and it's my last day of being 20!" she wrote, later tweeting, "Tonight @caitlinbird and @elizabethhuett knocked on my door...they brought a pizza with a lit 21 candle on it and bday hats.”
She even revealed: “Now I'm dancing around my room alone to @Pink's greatest hits cd."
Ah, a day to remember. Now, back to December.
