"It's gonna be non-stop sun," Taylor told reporters recently (quote via Country Weekly). "So it will be weird to have a tan around Christmas but I'm really excited about it."
The "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer will be home from Australia in time for Christmas day, which is very good news considering she was in Japan for Thanksgiving. Taylor recognizes that such sacrifices are just part of her job -- and for that, she is actually quite grateful. "It's hard work, but it's also my childhood dream," the Grammy winner notes. "I also keep a tight grasp on the fact that careers end every day. It is possible for you to say the wrong thing, do the wrong [thing], have a bad stroke of luck and it could be over, so why not appreciate every single day while you have it. Because there's no guarantee for anything."
Taylor should get a few days off before she heads out on her Red tour. The trek begins March 13 in Omaha, Neb. See more dates here.
