Happy Birthday Taylor Swift: Singer Turns 22 (PHOTOS)


First Posted: 12/13/11 11:51 AM ET Updated: 12/13/11 11:54 AM ET

Taylor Swift is hardly ever without a reason to celebrate and today is no different, as the singer-songwriter celebrates her 22nd birthday.

2011 has been more than kind to Swift. She was recently named Billboard's Woman of the Year, the Country Music Awards' Entertainer of the Year, the America Music Awards' Artist of the Year, and she has a new, "very different" album in the works for 2012.

We expect 22 to be just as bright as 21, for the adorable, cookie baking, singer who prides herself on being a role model.

Happy Birthday Taylor!
