- Taylor is planning on spending big money on a birthday gift for ?boyfriend? Harry Styles.  She's been looking for Beatles memorabilia for him.  Word is she's spending between $70,000 and $80,000.  Harry turns 19 on February 1st.

- Lastly....Did you know that Taylor keeps pearls in her purse. That's what she said in an interview with Web MD magazine.  Why??  Swift explains that she keeps pearl earrings and a necklace in her purse in case she has to dress up at the end of the day, but doesn't have the time to change!
