Taylor Swift Lists ‘16 and Pregnant’ and ‘Teen Mom’ as Guilty Pleasures
We all have our guilty pleasures, whether it’s low-brow television shows, cheesy music or eating peanut butter straight out of the jar. For Taylor Swift, guilty pleasures are defined as MTV shows about teenage pregnancy, like ’16 and Pregnant’ and ‘Teen Mom.’
In a new interview with Teen Vogue, Swift revealed a hefty list of pop-culture guilty pleasures. “‘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,” she admitted.
The ‘Love Story’ hitmaker also told the magazine that she really loves ‘Law & Order S.V.U.,’ and is engulfed by those 8-hour marathons that are always running on cable TV. If she could choose any character from any book or television series to dine with, Swift would pick Mariska Hargitay’s character. “Detective Olivia Benson from ‘Law & Order S.V.U.’ I sit in my apartment and watch hours of that show,” the 21-year-old pop-country icon said. “So I sort of feel like me and Olivia are BFFs.”
We have to admit, MTV has a great lineup going with those teen pregnancy shows. Not only is it entertaining to watch, it’s easy to be emotionally pulled in week after week — and, it shows young girls how hard it is to try to balance being a teen and having a baby.
Taylor Swift is currently on her Speak Now world tour, with upcoming shows this week in Philadelphia, Chicago and St. Louis.
