Taylor Swift's Advice For Teens: "Live Like You're 80 Looking Back at Your Life"

Taylor Swift was full of love for all her teenage fans as she took the stage and hit the press room at the Teen Choice Awards in Universal City this evening. She looked ladylike in her white dress after accepting her Ultimate Choice surfboard from good friend Emma Stone. Backstage Taylor talked about the best advice that she got when she was a teenager just a few years ago and what sort of music she's listening to these days:

  • On the best advice she got as a teenager: "Live your life like you're 80 looking back on your teenage years. You know if your dad calls you at eight in the morning and asks if you want to go to breakfast? As a teenager you're like no, I want to sleep. As an 80 year old looking back, you have that breakfast with your dad. It's just little things like that that helped me when I was a teenager in terms of making the choices you won't regret later."
  • On what she's listening to these days: "I'm really going through a Beach Boys phase. I'm listening to the Beach Boys and The Shirelles. All kids of 50s and 60s music."
