People magazine has recognized Taylor Swift with her second-biggest honor of the week.
First, THG editors named the superstar the seventh most important celebrity of 2009.
Now, the aforementioned publication has placed Swift on the cover of its special year-end issue, dubbing her one of the 25 most fascinating individuals of the past 12 months. Replied Taylor, when asked about her life these days?
"It feels like this ongoing dream."
It's pretty much impossible to dislike Swift, considering she sounds more mature and more grounded the more successful she becomes.
"You can stay the same person, even if everything around you changes," she tells the magazine. "I would like to think everybody out there isn't just waiting for me to trip and fall and stumble out of a club drunk."
Also honored by People in the issue: Kate Gosselin, Sandra Bullock, Jacyee Duggard and Robert Pattinson. It's an eclectic group. But, hey, it's been an eclectic year!
