Swift 'obsessed' with number 13

Taylor Swift is “obsessed” with number 13.

The ‘Love Story’ hitmaker has reportedly been talked out of getting a tattoo of her favourite digit etched onto her arm after her family told her it would be bad for her image.

A source told gossip website Absolute Now: "Taylor has this weird connection with the number 13 which goes back to when she was a kid. It's her lucky number. Every time she has won an award she has sat in seat number 13, and the number keeps cropping up in good times for her.

“She was even going to get a tattoo on her arm but her folks have stepped in and convinced her it could be kind of unlucky for her look.”

It was previously claimed that Taylor’s friend Miley Cyrus has urged her to get some body art.

The 17-year-old 'Hannah Montana' star reportedly wanted her pop singer pal to get the words "Just Breathe" - which Miley has etched on her own body - inked onto her body.

However, Taylor, 20, reportedly told her: "My mom would kill me! Besides I hate needles."
