Taylor Swift has a lot to be thankful for this year. Her new album Red has already sold over 1 million copies, and she has millions of devoted fans. Many have headed home to spend this Thanksgiving with their family. Swift, though, isn’t spending Thanksgiving with her family in Nashville this year. Instead, she’ll be spending it with fans in Tokyo.
The 22-year-old is currently promoting her hit record, Red , which had her jetting to Japan, where she will be spending the holiday.
"I will be in Japan for Thanksgiving," she told CountryWeekly. "So I probably won't be having the traditional Thanksgiving dinner at all."
The “I Knew You Were Trouble” singer may not have that big feast, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t going to try to have one of her own, even if it seems impossible.
"It's gonna be interesting trying to find turkey there," she told The Boot.
Though this year she won’t be at her family’s dinner table, she’s thankful for the opportunities she has been given as a country superstar.
"That's kinda how my life goes. Wherever I'm gonna be I'm gonna be. I know that when I'm putting out a record all bets are off,” she said. “I just put my head down and wake up when they tell me to and I just do what I'm told ... a lot. That sounds depressing, but I think it's fun. It's hard work but it's also my childhood dream."
"I also keep a tight grasp on the fact that careers end every day. It is possible for you to say the wrong thing, do the wrong [thing], have a bad stroke of luck and it could be over, so why not appreciate every single day while you have it.”
