Taylor Swift Flies the Coop

This past November, after winning Country Music Association awards for Best Album, Best Female Vocalist and Entertainer of the Year, Taylor Swift Tweeted about how she celebrated:

"Just wrapped up a cereal party with my mom and dad at the kitchen table," wrote the country music sensation the morning after her victory. "What a night."

But Swift, who turned 20 on December 13th may do a little less time at the family's table now. This past October, the superstar announced to Oprah that she's leaving the parental crib for her own newly purchased Nashville condo. It has been said that the 4,063 square foot 3 bedroom 4 .5 bathroom penthouse in the city's downtown section cost $1,990,000 million.

"I'm really excited because all my friends moved out and went to college last year and I'm getting those phone calls where they're like, 'Still living with Mom and Dad, huh?'" says Swift who moved with her family to Nashville from their native Wyomissing Pennsylvania when she was 14. As her brother and mother waited for her in car, she would pound Music Row's pavement with demo CDs begging anyone to listen. "So now I'm working on moving out. I'm doing all kinds of construction. That's all I talk about now, tiles and paint and stuff. It's really boring."
