In a brief interview with MTV News during a break of the rehearsal for the Grammy Announcement Concert on Tuesday, December 2, Taylor Swift shared her plans to have a birthday party with her band and crew when she turns 19 years old next Saturday, December 13. She also opened up about her wish list, which included a new glasses as a replacement for her broken one.
"I'm so excited," so she said about her upcoming big day. "I'm turning 19. ... It's not 18; it's not 21. But it's going to be fun. It's the last year of my teens." To mark the day, she revealed she's been planning to hold a combination party, birthday and holiday, telling MTV News, "I am having a party with my band and my crew. A year-end, you-guys-are-awesome party."
Also spilling the beans on her birthday wish list, Taylor confessed, "The best gift for me would be stationery - I really like cards a lot." She then added, "I asked my family for new glasses, 'cause mine broke, and I need them to drive. I've been, like, taping them, which is, of course, not the best look for anyone."
