In other T. Swifty news, the 22-year-old country cutie recently revealed that she fears she'll drunk dial her famous friends! With stars like Gwyneth Paltrow in her phone book, Swift told The Sun, "I have a strict rule that I don't have my phone on me when I drink!"

However, Taylor, whose other BFFs include Selena Gomez and Emma Stone, says she prefers not to focus on business when she hangs with her pals. "I have friends from all fields -- people who are in school, actresses and singers," she added. "It's surprising how we don't talk shop. You'd think we'd get together and discuss the stresses of fame but we actually just talk about boys like all the other girls. We don't run through each other's scripts or compare set lists."
