The Thing That Influences Taylor Swift the Most Is . . . Her Cats

TAYLOR SWIFT was recently asked for the three things that influence her the most . . . and her response is a little underwhelming.  But at the same time, not at all surprising if you know Taylor.

Her top answer was:  Her CATS.  She said, quote, “Number One for me, most influential factor in my life, is cats.  I have cats.  I’m obsessed with them.  They’re just a real joy to live with.

“I love my cats so much that when a role came up in a movie called ‘Cats’ I just thought that I had to do this.  This is my calling in life to do this for the ladies.”  (???)

The #2 most influential thing for Taylor is:  PAUL MCCARTNEY, who she says has had an “amazing career . . . and created unparalleled art.”  She noted that he’s also just really cool with his fans, the as a performer.

The third thing is looking at her fans’ Tumblr posts because it’s a “window into what they’re going through.”  She said they’re also posting “cool pictures that she likes,” of things that are “completely unrelated” to anything.

(Maybe that’s just Taylor showing love to her fans like she always does . . . BUT it seems a little forced, almost like it was a planned plug for Tumblr.  Who knows.  Here’s the video of her explaining each thing.)
