Taylor Swift

"I'm so 22 right now," is the first thing country cutie Taylor Swift tweeted when she turned 22 yesterday. The singer celebrates her birthday with a number of other celebs born on this day including Jamie Foxx and Steve Buscemi among others.

In celebration of our favorite young singer we're taking a look to see what she's been up to.

New Music Video

This past week Taylor released her new music video "Ours." The video is ultra romantic featuring the singer as a regular career girl having a bad day until she realizes there's someone who makes her life better. The concept of the video came straight fro the singer.

"I had a very definitive idea of what I wanted this video to be," Swift told E! in exclusive behind-the-scenes footage.

Grammy Alert!

This singer is no stranger to winning awards. She's already picked up quite a few in 2011 but was happily surprised when she found out she was nominated for three Grammy awards including Best Country Album and Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance for "Mean." Do you think Taylor will win all three nominations in 2012?

Celebrating the Holidays

If you pay attention to the singer's Twitter account then it's pretty obvious this is one young star who absolutely loves celebrating the holiday season.

"Aw! The #Wonderstruck team at Elizabeth Arden had this tree sent to my room in NYC! It's Christmas EVERYWHERE !!!http://instagr.am/p/W4Isd/", and "Might have gone a little crazy in Williams Sonoma today. I couldn't help it, it's so seasonal in there. http://instagr.am/p/X50aQ/" she tweeted recently.

New Hair

The country babe ditched her golden curly locks for a straight sleek look with bangs recently and shocked fans and awed critics.

"Got a haircut," the country singer tweeted, showing off her long blonde look. The haircut came right around the same time the singer won Artist of the Year at the American Music Awards. Should Taylor stay straight or go back to curly?
