Taylor Swift turns 22 years old today and one thing is certain: the superstar has no shortage of friends with whom she can celebrate.

Just consider her duets over the past few months alone: Swift sang with Selena Gomez in NYC; with Flo Rida in Miami; and with Usher in Atlanta, just to name a few.

Indeed, this is one popular young icon, but she's also one who never forgets her fans. So raise your hands, make them into a heart, Taylor-style, and send in your birthday shout-outs to the new 22-year old right now. She'll most definitely appreciate them and, hey, this is Taylor Swift.

Maybe she'll write a song about you one day.

Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus have very different sounds (country vs. pop); different looks (blonde vs. brunette); and different philosophies on where they stand as celebrities.

Cyrus - who most recently came under fire for making a joke about marijuana - has made it clear that she just wants to be a typical teenager whose occupation happens to make her rich and famous.

“My job isn’t to tell your kids how to act or how not to act because I’m still figuring that out myself,” Miley told Harper’s Bazaar a few months ago. “To take that away from me is a bit selfish. Your kids are going to make mistakes whether I do or not.”

Swift, conversely, is happy to embrace her status as a role model. She understands it comes with the territory.

At the Billboard Women of the Year Awards on Friday, Taylor referenced Faith Hill in an interview with Katie Couric, saying:

“For me, when Faith Hill performed on an awards show, everything mattered... everything she said said, did, wore I tried to copy it. That’s what little girls do, so there is a big responsibility and I take it very seriously.”

Two artists. Two contrasting points of view. On whose side do you fall? Do you believe Taylor and Miley are role models and should act as such?

Taylor Swift has come out with the official video for her fifth track of the platinum album, "Speak Now."

The superstar has said she had a "very definitive" vision for what she wanted to do with "Ours," and director Declan Whitebloom was all too happy to abide by the advice of the singer/songewriter, he told E! News:

"When Taylor says, 'I've got an idea,' you listen to what she's gonna say. And so I did, and it was a great idea - and I loved it!"

Taylor Swift, Ours

In the video, Swift takes on the role of an office worker having a no good, terrible, very bad day... until she remember that there's a special someone on whom she can count. And he's played by former Friday Night Lights quarterback Zach Gilford! Watch it below:

No offense, Johnny Rzeznik. But we've forgotten about you already.

On Monday evening, Taylor Swift invited the Goo Goo Dolls frontman to join her on stage at Madison Square Garden for a version of "Iris." It was perfectly decent. But it can't compare to the fun duet Swift put on last night, also in New York City, with another special guest:

Selena Gomez! These pals belted out a rendition of the former's "Who Says," one that can scarcely be heard in the following video above the screams of those in attendance. Can you blame them? This is the first time Taylor and Selena have performed together. Enjoy the double team now:

"I definitely think about a million people when I'm getting dressed in the morning, and that's just part of my life now," Swift tells the news magazine. "I think it's my responsibility to know it and to be conscious of it."

While other artists may have gotten into trouble over the years for drunk driving or the smoking of substances, Swift won't ever use her age as an excuse for any behavior of this type.

"It would be really easy to say 'I'm 21 now, I do what I want. You raise your kids!'" Swift says. "But it's not the truth of it. The truth of it is that every singer out there with songs on the radio is raising the next generation."

Have we mentioned recently how much we adore Taylor Swift?
