Happy 21st Birthday To Taylor Swift!

Taylor Swift, arguably the biggest act in the music industry right now, turns 21 years old today so we would like to wish her a very Happy 21st Birthday. She's accomplished so many amazing things already that it's hard to believe she is only 21. In a world where even the Disney stars let people down, yes, Miley we are talking about you, Taylor has stayed true to her word that she would always try to be a good role-model for all the kids that look up to her.

Taylor truly seems to have a special bond with her fans and is always looking for new ways to connect with them and reward them for being her fans. Today, to celebrate her birthday, every order placed at her on-line store will include a free bonus item worth at least $10. Giving presents to her fans on HER birthday, pretty cool.

Happy Birthday Taylor!
