SHE ALWAYS MAKES TIME

SHE ALWAYS MAKES TIME

Jalene Salinas made a bucket list: In addition to things like building a snowman and going to a spa, the 4-year-old diagnosed with a PNET tumor dreamed of dancing with Swift to "Shake It Off." #ShakeItOffJalene caught the singer's eye, and she met her young fan during a March 2 FaceTime chat. "I'm so happy to talk to you," Swift told Jalene during their 20-minute catchup, just weeks before Jalene passed away. "And I'm so happy you like 'Shake It Off.'"

SHE CRASHES THEIR BRIDAL SHOWERS

Like all brides-to-be, Gena Gabrielle's wedding registry wasn't complete without one very essential item: Sorry, blenders – we're talking about a shower cameo from Swift. The singer headed to Columbus, Ohio, to surprise her fan with kitchen goods, a cookbook and a supply of selfies that deserve inclusion in her wedding album.

SHE GIVES THEM THE BEST CHRISTMAS GIFTS EVER

Even Ebenezer Scrooge could appreciate Swift's seasonal cheer, which resulted in a new holiday just for her fans: Swiftmas. The lucky ones on her nice list last year were treated to presents hand-picked by Swift, which is, like, a thousand times better than the socks your aunt gave you for Christmas.

SHE'S THERE FOR THEM DURING BREAKUPS

Ice cream only goes so far when you're heartbroken, which is why Kasey reached out to someone who knows a few things about getting through breakups. Swift replied to the teenage fan's Tumblr post with a playlist and some solid advice for your Pinterest quote board: "There is nothing wrong with avoiding people who hurt you."

AND HER REAL AGE IS …

Estimated age: 28
From her sweet tooth to her sartorial selections, Swift's interests are suitable for all ages. After crunching the numbers, though, we calculated that 26-year-old Swift is actually … a late 20-something – although, if you ask us, she's timeless.

Estimated age: 24
Some people wear their hearts on their sleeves, but Swift wears hers right where you can see it. (And this tee is just one example of her feline-themed fashion choices, which we consider pretty in-vogue.)

We're pretty sure if we "woke up like thissssssss" (as Tay declared she did), we wouldn't look as put-together as the star: She doesn't have a single hair out of place, a perfectly pink lip, plus she's got an adorable cat to cuddle with. #tswiftproblems, amirite?

The supermodel pairs her criss-cross cutout Elizabeth and James crop top with a curve-loving pencil skirt, while the singer wears hers with with a flippy mini (naturally). One thing's for sure: They both look super-sexy.

SHEER BLACK STOCKINGS WITH WHITE SHOES

SHEER BLACK STOCKINGS WITH WHITE SHOES

We love how Taylor Swift works vintage-inspired accessories into her looks (note the sparkly headband), but she may have gone overboard by pairing hosiery with floral detail at the thigh (very 1920s) with bow-adorned kitten heels.

We're trying to resist referencing her lyrics, but there is no other way to say this: He's got that James Dean daydream look in his eyes (and, yes, she's got that red lip classic thing because it is a day that ends in "y" and all is right in the world).

Yes, we know Taylor didn't break a sweat in her floral separates, metallic purple pumps and freshly blown-out hair, but we have to point out that this is what the woman looks like immediately after working out (she's walking out of her N.Y.C. gym in this photo – seriously).

HAVE A FRIEND PRESENT

So things don't get too crazy, you know? While on a date in N.Y.C., Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris bring Ed Sheerhan (not pictured), who acts as a de facto chaperone, insuring that the date doesn't get too hot and steamy.

SPEAKING OF RUMORS: SHE HANDLES THEM LIKE A PRO

We just may never know if cat-cidental damage is covered by anyone's insurance. Poking fun at reports she took some serious steps to protect her famous legs, she posted a photo on Instagram of a claw-related injury. "GREAT WORK MEREDITH," she wrote. "I WAS JUST TRYING TO LOVE YOU AND NOW YOU OWE ME 40 MILLION DOLLARS."

WHEN SHE JUST DID NOT HAVE TIME FOR THAT FEUD THING

Her fans, her cats, her squad of equally impression girlfriends – those are all things Swift will gladly talk to you about. Just don't ask her about her rumored feud with Katy Perry, the much-speculated inspiration for "Bad Blood." She told The Telegraph, "I'm not giving them anything to write about. I'm never going to talk about her in my interview. It's not going to happen." Mic drop.
