Taylor Swift graduates
Teen country sensation Taylor Swift has one hot piece of paper no Grammy committee could ever give her: her high school diploma.
Swift received the hard-earned paper in the mail due to her busy performance schedule, unlike her peers who donned caps and gowns. "Education has always been at the forefront of my priorities, so I'm really glad to have my diploma," said the 18-year-old singer-songwriter to The Associated Press on Friday.After attending a public high school during her freshman and sophomore years, Swift transferred to the Aaron Academy, a private Christian school that allows home schooling and private tutoring, when her career took off.So far her debut self-titled album has sold over three million copies and produced three hit songs, including "Our Song," "Picture To Burn" and "Teardrops on My Guitar." "I never expected that my senior year would go the way it has," she said. "There's something really exciting about getting to live your dream and continue your education at the same time."Swift is expected to release a new album this fall.
