Unlike the majority of western civilization, Taylor’is not triskaidekaphobic ‘ ie, she’s not afraid of the number 13. In fact, she loves it so much so that it influences big-deal stuff she does. Born on’December 13, she turned 13 on Friday 13. Her first album went gold in 13 weeks. She paints a ’13’ on her hand before every show she does, noting: ‘It’s really weird.’ In 2009 she commented’that every time she’d won an award she was sat in the 13th’row, seat, section, or in ‘Row M, which is the 13th’letter.’ Oh, and she says her first Number One single had a 13-second intro. ‘Basically,’ she’s said, ‘whenever a 13 comes up in my life, it’s a good thing.’

After a few years of auditioning in New York and not getting anything, I started writing songs. But I never lost my love for theatre.’
