Why Lisa Simpson is Taylor Swift's spirit animal
As well as being almost birthday twins (Taylor turned 25 on Saturday and
was first aired 25 years ago today), Taylor Swift and Lisa Simpson are clearly each other\'s spirit animals (you can do online quizzes to find out yours, but prepare to be disappointed – I got \'otter\'). You want conclusive proof, you say? Read on...
This is obvious really, but some detail: Taylor first got into music aged nine, when she started performing in musical theatre, but it was when she first picked up a guitar aged 12 that her interest went into overdrive. Lisa, meanwhile, has been playing the saxophone impressively, albeit intermittently, since 1989.
Taylor? Fun fact: in the years before she picked up a guitar, Taylor\'s hobby was horse riding, although these days she\'s more usually seen with her cats, Olivia Benson (pictured) and the much-maligned Meredith. Lisa, meanwhile is a hardcore animal lover: she\'s a vegetarian who has adopted several cats in T
25-year run. All of whom were called Snowball.
With an IQ of 159, Lisa\'s intellectual prowess is unrivalled (in Springfield). Taylor, meanwhile, is smart enough to have written or co-written pretty much all of her songs, allowing her to earn almost $40million in 2013. Oh, and in addition, Tay told CBS in 2013, \'You want to be around, like, smart, exciting people.\' These two would
Tay supported the Every Woman Counts political process during the 2008 election and counts Michelle Obama as an inspiration. And Lisa? Well, in the Simpson\'s episode
, it\'s revealed that Lisa is America\'s first female president.
In the same way Lisa has nailed her signature look of pearls and handkerchief hem dress (so noughties), Taylor has found herself a prim but cute silhouette of crop tops, A-line skirts and platform heels.
Down with Taylor\'s style? Well, check out how she wore her ASOS coat here.
