She’s a chart-topping pop princess, an actress and an ex-girlfriend to many Hollywood hunks. Taylor Swift is making headlines today as she celebrates her 24th birthday. There have been many moments of glory and grace (and shame) that the songbird has received over the years. Here are 10 of them.

1. She dropped the F bomb at the 2013 VMA awards when One Direction took to the stage to present an award. Turning to her pal Selena Gomez, the camera cut to Miss Swift mouthing, “Shut the f*** up". According to Taylor’s other pal Ed Sheeran this was not a bitter hit at Taylor Swift’s ex Harry Styles, but rather, “Selena said, ‘I think Miley's gonna win [over me]’. And Taylor was like, 'Shut the f*** up!" That's all that was!'"

2. While most of her music is dedicated to a previous boyfriend or a fiery flame, Taylor revealed her most recent album, Red, was mostly about one ex-beau. It is assumed to be about Jake Gyllenhaal whom Taylor dated for about a year. “I heard from the guy that most of Red is about,” Taylor told New York magazine. “He was like, ‘I just listened to the album, and that was a really bittersweet experience for me. It was like going through a photo album.’ That was nice.”

3. At the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, before breaking into one of her songs, We are never ever getting back together, Taylor spoke in a clear British accent, which was clearly her way of insinuating her performance was dedicated to ex-boyfriend and British boy band member Harry Styles of One Direction.

4. With her super long legs, she could have easily been mistaken as a Victoria Secret model but after her headline act at the 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, Australian model Jessica Hart said Taylor 'didn't fit' with the rest of the models. “I think, you know what, God bless her heart. I think she's great. But I don't know, to me, she didn't fit. I don't know if I should say that.”

5. It’s probably the most infamous Taylor Swift incident and an iconic VMA moment. In 2009 at the VMA awards rapper Kanye West stormed on stage during Taylor’s acceptance speech for Best Female Video to deliver one of his most famous rants. He cut Taylor Swift off and grabbed the mic to protest in favour of Beyoncé.

6. Taylor got a little cheeky at the Billboard Music Awards. While backstage, the pop princess was caught on camera sticking her tongue out at Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez as they gave a friendly kiss after their break-up.

7. We all love Taylor’s surprise face when she received an award but her epic reaction to getting a fright tops even that! Taylor was caught on camera when she was scared silly by a little prank by Ellen DeGeneres. Here’s the video.

8. At the Winter White Gala Taylor Swift belted out Livin’ on a Prayer with Bon Jovi and cajoled Prince William to join in. While it is Bon Jovi’s song, all the focus was on Taylor and Wills, who looked rather comfortable together on the stage.

9. She’s possibly the most committed audience dance member. Here’s a hilarious video of her at the Country Music Television awards that made the news this year.

10. Over the past year she’s topped the fashion headlines many times for her impeccable red-carpet style. Here’s a few looks.
