Taylor Swift covers the August issue of Teen Vogue, following June/July cover girl and BFF Selena Gomez, and the country darling almost makes you believe she’s just a normal, 21 year-old girl instead of a major superstar. 

For example, does America’s music sweetheart have in common with Teen Mom?

She loves it!

Teen Mom, 16 and Pregnant, 90’s one-hit wonders, watching YouTube videos of kittens, the app CatPaint . . I CatPaint all my pictures. It’s weird,” Taylor responds when asked what her pop-culture guilty pleasures are. 

Have to admit the Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant shows surprise us! Seems like Tay would be too girl-next-door for all that. But who doesn’t like the drama of reality television?

Still, it’s another TV icon that really gets Swift excited: Detective Olivia Benson (played by Mariska Hargitayfrom Law & Order: SVU. “I sit in my apartment and watch hours of that show,” Taylor says when asked if she could have dinner with any character, who it would be. “I sort of feel like me and Olivia are BFFs.”

Fictional characters aside, the country crooner feels perfectly content with the crowd she has surrounded herself with. “My friends all have different jobs — some I get to see at award shows, some I see when they’re home from college, some are in my band! I’m so lucky to have so many people I love and trust.”
