Performing on "The Oprah Winfrey Show", the episode of which has been aired on Wednesday, October 14, Taylor Swift took time backstage to answer a few questions for her fans. At one time she recalled how she admired fellow country music singer LeAnn Rimes back when she was still a kid.

"My dream idol to meet when I was younger was LeAnn Rimes," she claimed. Explaining the reason why, Swift said "It was so cool to see someone who was 14-years-old making albums and touring."

Talking about Rimes and her achievement in music, Swift then opened up about her future plans to release more albums. "My next big dream is probably going to be making a third album that I'm even more proud of than my second album," she revealed. "I've already written so many songs for it, and recorded about half of it, so hopefully when the third album comes out I'll be even more proud of it than anything I've put out before."

In another Taylor Swift news, the 19-year-old singer has been confirmed to make a guest appearance on "Saturday Night Live" as the host of November 7 episode. It is widely believed that she will take revenge on Kanye West for interrupting her award acceptance speech at MTV Video Music Awards in September by making him the subject of ridicule in the skit.
