Taylor Swift has had quite the year. With short hair and a new apartment in New York, Swift started 2014 ready to take the music industry by storm. Despite the overwhelming success of her previous country albums, with 1989 she decided to ditch her cowboy boots for crop tops. Still, Swift's fifth album managed to retain her signature striking lyrics. But the shift in genre was only one of many fearless decisions she made in 2014. Here are 13 highlights from her insane year.
1. She performed "All Too Well" at the Grammys. Although Swift may have been tempted to perform a better known hit, she decided to perform a tear-jerking rendition of a song that wasn't even a single. Why? Her fans requested it, of course.
