5. If singing doesn't work out, there's always that novel she wrote.

When she was just 12 years old, Taylor Swift spent a summer writing a novel. At 350 pages, the story is finished and ready for print, not that the singer has indicated she's going to do so anytime soon. She has said that she'd like to write her own biography. "Years from now it would be cool to write a book about all the crazy stuff and the insane things I've gotten to do," Swift says. "My life moves so fast, I have to write it all down, otherwise I can't remember where I was yesterday. I will write my biography for sure." Swift is also a talented painter.
