Recently, some paparazzi took pictures of Taylor Swift doing something extremely uncharacteristic. She wasn’t being arrested by police, nor did she come out of a night club without her underwear.

The shocking action in question? Buying stuff from Target.

While a guest on Jay Leno’s “The Tonight Show,” she explained that because of a video shoot, she is spending a few weeks in Los Angeles. Since she’s in LA, she doesn’t have her at-home necessities and had to pick some up, like a record player.

Someone told her that Target carried quality record players and she said she’s “been listening to a lot of music on vinyl.” Naturally, a trip to Target was in order.

Swift also added that she has been trying out some new material.

Her next revelation was that that she has been listening to a lot of rap and hip hop music. Not just that, but she has developed a liking for the music of Rihanna, Keri Hilson, Nicki Minaj and 50 Cent.

She may like hip hop music, but it is her own country music that is getting her all of the awards and recognition. At the weekend, she was awarded the Entertainer of the Year award at the Academy of Country Music Awards.

Swift told Leno that she has been completely blown away by the fans’ response. She revealed that it has been a magnificent week for her, as just after coming back from her tour of Asia and Europe, she was honored with the prestigious award.

She also thanked the natives of her hometown of Nashville. There, according to Swift, country music awards are as big a deal as the Super Bowl. Wherever she went before the award ceremony, people of Nashville kept on wishing her good luck.

She admitted that she found her lucky sign during the awards ceremony that hinted that she was going to win the award. The superstitious singer said that during one of the nominations clippings, a football player with 13 on his jersey was shown on the big screen. As 13 is Swift’s lucky number, she knew that she would win the award.

At the peak of her career, it seems as if Swift has no plans to slow down. However, she does have a backup plan in case she wants to make a career change. She told Leno that on long road trips, to pass time, she started cutting people’s hair. Not shockingly, the multi-talented star didn’t disappoint anyone with her skills with scissors. Taylor Swift as a hair dresser, who would wanna see that?
